Kwese Now Offers Package For Civil Servants

Kwese TV decoder

Kwese is now offering a package that is specifically tailored for civil servants. The new deal is a 2-year contract offering and over the next 24 months, civil servants will pay a monthly fee of $20.30. This 20 bucks will get you:

  • Free Decoder
  • Free Standard installation
  • Kwese full bouquet of 77 channels for the first 12 months and then reduction of channels over the last 12 months

For civil servants interested in applying you just need to go with your national ID, your current payslip and proof of residence to any Econet Shop.

Is this similar to what GTel does?

Yes. Gtel and Creative Computers also have contract offerings that are specific to civil servants.

For Kwese this will help with subscriber retention on their platform. The contract model will avoid the situation where a subscriber would pay only the first month’s fee and then stop using the service. Once a civil servant has signed up for the contract it will be very difficult for them to opt out during these 24 months since Kwese gets their $20.30 from the SSB(Salary Service Bureau) and not from the civil servant directly.

Cash flow…

In the event that a sizeable amount of civil servants sign up for this Kwese will also now have a steady revenue as they will be guaranteed to get this money over the next two years. This also gives Kwese a better chance of retaining their customers as they could improve the content on their platform over the duration of the two years.

This seems like a positive move that will make Kwese more available to the masses. It will be interesting to see how this one unfolds…

  1. I have learnt never sign up to any long term contract coz you never know what is around the corner especially in our challenging times. Yes you will be caught out and have “Interest and legal fees” hanging over you.

  2. How can those civil servants who have already bought the kwese decoders be incorporated into the program

  3. What i dont understand is the concept of reducing the channels on the 2nd half (the other 12 months), its like giving someone honey for 12 months then afterwards you start giving them syrup.. what if someone wants to continue getting the full channels.. how has it been catered for?

  4. As long musati makuburitsa supersport imbomirai izvozvo. 20bond yekuona zvisina basa maya

  5. Vanoda kudyirwa mari ngavadyirwe havo.
    better kubhadhara $11 for dstv, even if once has to source the usd to pay for it, its still better

  6. I’m not sure how this business model will be received by the target market. Quite a number of service providers are moving AWAY from long term contracts because of the “slavery” they create (at the point a client is dissatisfied). A good number restrict themselves to 30-day contracts which offer customers/clients flexibility in this fast-changing world.
    This is what DStv does…you can cancel or disconnect at the drop of a hat – how wonderful!!

  7. I applied for the kwese Civil servants scheme early last month. I still haven’t received any response. May I know if you have my file..
    Thank you.
