These are just LTE data packages without the subscriptions for access to DSTV channels? All I want is Cricket and Rugby at a reasonable cost. I have been completely priced and I no longer follow these sports.

I don't remember that ever being a thing, but that sounds super interesting.
Can you find any official mention of that? I can't seem to.
Can't remember what it was called, nor can I find any refrence to it now either, I'm actually surprised there is't a thread about it here.

It was a 56k dial-up modem that included a transparent blue infrared keyboard to read and send TV-mail.

That was a product too, but I remember it was faster than 56k, I asked my dad to get it since he thought "ADSL is expensive".

Was that with the thing that let you order food through dstv I remember browsing menus for chow
Don't recall this

Yes, friend outside Clanwilliam had it. It was a bit slow and there was a lot of lag
Do you remember what it was called?

Would like to know too.

The only thing faster than 56Kb/s dial-up at the time was ISDN at 64Kb/s, or 128Kb/s if you bonded two channels.

ISDN never really got traction in the residential market, and after that ADSL was introduced.

Which they'll stop selling in the next year.

This was pre 2000. It used a 56k modem as uplink and the satellite as downlink. It was on the same IS20 satellite but not a Multichoice product. It's somewhere in my PCFormat "books".
