MultiChoice told MyBroadband that it does not discriminate on pricing between its DStv consumer and business packages.

“We offer different customers different package options at different price points,” MultiChoice said.

MultiChoice added that business-to-business package offerings have different requirements to individual subscriptions, which influences how they are priced.
