AlwaysOn has expanded its new streaming package to include traffic from Vidi, the video on demand service from Times Media Group.

The streaming-only package was first announced at the launch of OntapTV in September, with AlwaysOn offering 15GB and 50GB bundles intended for video streaming.

The packages only work through AlwaysOn’s Super Wi-Fi locations.

Its Super Wi-Fi hotspots are backhauled by fibre links with speeds of up to 1Gbps, while its browser Wi-Fi zones are typically backed by DSL connections with speeds of up to 40Mbps.

In addition to only working at Super Wi-Fi hotspots, AlwaysOn Streaming accounts are limited to streaming video content from OntapTV and Vidi.

“This service does not provide Internet access for browsing or any other Internet activities,” said AlwaysOn.

AlwaysOn Streaming is priced as follows:

  • R29 for 15GB, valid for 30 days
  • R59 for 50GB, valid for 30 days
