I am one angry customer ...I signed up 2 years ago for the price lock package and then last year i run in very very bad financial difficulties and could not pay...I ran badly in arrears and after so many calls month in and month out nobody wants to help ...eventually Violet Mnguni decided to help me on the 05/10/2017 after months of calling and asking and begging for help...Which i was and am very grateful for...She manage to cancel the pricelock for me and put my account back on a residential account with an agreement to pay off the pricelock arrears amount...Letter attached which was send to me from Violet...

Week after week everytime when i get home my decoder has been switched call after phone call and fights and explanation my decoder get connected again

On the 29/11/2017 incident happens again and after another few phone calls Mpho Tshubello helped me and told me how to make my payments ...letter also attached which was received from him...

I kept my arrangements with Multichoice/DSTV month after month after all the arrangements...(do as i asked and as per writing) and yet I still have to phone week in as my decoder been switched of again and again and again...Then explaining has to start all over again...

You can send mails to the persons that helped you not you cannot speak to that person again

So I want to know what is the next step forward...?
