MultiChoices Launches DStv Internet – Affordable Internet Services


Recommended Posts

Multichoice has partnered with MTN to launch a fixed wireless internet access service called DStv Internet, design for streaming media.

The DStv internet comes in three data packages that you can use to stream any media. What this means is that customers can now get connected to the Internet with a Sim card and Wi-Fi router – a perfect option for those who do not have fiber in their residential area but want to access the Internet regularly using various devices in their home.

Customers can choose from three data packages: 25GB, 110GB, and 220GB. MultiChoice said it “selected” MTN South Africa as its network partner, presumably after a competitive bidding process. 

What DStv Internet offers:

  • 25GB anytime and 25GB night data: R299/month
  • 110GB anytime and 110GB night data: R499/month
  • 220GB anytime and 220GB night data: R799/month

How it Works

DStv Internet does not require a DStv subscription and can be used on a standalone basis to access the Internet. 

It includes a new, premium service called DStv Trusted Home, an AI-driven network security and Wi-Fi management solution developed jointly by MultiChoice’s digital platform security subsidiary Irdeto, and Minim, which develops “intelligent networking” products. 

DStv Trusted Home offers an iOS and Android app that puts subscribers in control of their Wi-Fi connection and protects their home network from online security threats and malicious attacks. It also has parental control features. 

The app is only available for use with DStv Internet routers. There are two router models that customers can purchase: the ZTE 286C & ZTE 286 R. The routers are included in MultiChoice’s bundle and contract offerings. 

As part of the launch of DStv new offering, the first 20 000 customers will receive a free 12-month subscription to the DStv Trusted Home app. After 12 months, customers will have the chance to opt-out or add a monthly charge of R30 to their DStv Internet bill. 

No word yet on when it will be launch in other Africa countries like Nigeria, Kenya, Ghana, etc. What do you think about this?
