Bloemfontein: Minister of Communications, Nomvula Mokonyane will on Sunday; the 28th October2018, visit the Mphatlalatsane community in the Free State for a door-to-door registration of government subsidized decoders.
Minister will be accompanied by the Premier of the Free State, Sisi Ntombela .This is part of the broadcasting digital migration programme.
The door-to-door registration is particularly aimed at the elderly and disabled, as well as those qualifying families who, for credible reasons, are unable to go to their nearest Post Office for registration.
This registration process will run concurrently with the one taking place at the Post Office.
The primary aim of digital migration is to release valuable spectrum which will be used to provide new services such as wireless and other broadband offerings.
All the analogue transmitters in the Free State province will be switched off in December 2018.
The details of the registration campaign are as follows:
Venue: Lemotso Primary School in Mphatlalatsane; Thabong; Welkom; Free State
Date: Sunday 28th of October 2018
