DST today gave Brunei a more affordable alternative to connect high-speed internet in homes as it publicly announced its first foray into the fibre home broadband business.

Cheers and applause echoed throughout the Empire Hotel’s Indera Kayangan Ballroom as the telco’s CEO Radin Sufri Radin Basiuni, through a grandesque and well-thought out presentation, unveiled its new product, Infinity, along with its three-tier pricing structure starting at as low as $38 a month for 200GB of data at 20Mbps bandwidth.

But what really got the netizens talking was Infinity’s handsomely-priced unlimited plan options starting at just under $100 a month for 20Mbps bandwidth. As if that wasn’t enough, DST even throws in a TP-Link router and wifi extender for customers who make the switch to its Infinity 98 plan.

DST also aims at luring streamers and gamers in Brunei to switch to its Infinity $148 unlimited plan which offers a faster 50Mbps bandwidth and bundled with a TP-Link mesh router.

These wider availability of options and more competitive pricing for fibre home broadband in Brunei this year are made possible following a major restructuring of the nation’s network infrastructure, now consolidated by Unified National Networks (UNN).

DST also revamped its Prima mobile postpaid service to a more affordable and streamlined pricing structure and rebranded it as Mobi.

This new service also come in a three-tier data plan with unlimited calls and texts, and for the first time, unlimited mobile data for subscribers who opt for Mobi’s premium $80 plan.

DST is also giving out free Samsung and Oppo smartphones as incentives for customers upgrading to Mobi.

The telco is also offering a free fixed-line broadband subscription of 200GB a month if four postpaid mobile customers sign up to a Converge Plan.

A DST sales representative (R) explains to visitors on the new DST products during the launch event at The Empire.

Easi prepaid subscribers also got to celebrate as DST introduced new bundles, for $8 (7-day validity) and $22 (30-day validity) and cheaper data add-on packages.

DST also overhauled its Go!Broadband portable internet service, now dubbed Freedom, with plans ranging from $18 to $63 a month.

Radin Sufri said DST has revamped its products and services to give more value for its 420,000 subscribers.
