South Africa: FNB Connect offers free Youtube


FNB Connect has announced that it will be offering its ADSL customers free access to YouTube. This means that customers who are registered for FNB Connect Surf can now browse the world’s most popular video viewing site between 7pm and 11pm until August 2012 at no cost. Registration is free and newly registered users also get 1 (one) free GB of ADSL data to browse other sites.

FNB Connect previously launched a free YouTube promotion for a period of 2 (two) months and has now decided to re-launch this promotion based on customer uptake and demand.

Farren Roper, Head of Products and Markets at FNB Connect says “This has been very popular amongst our clients and we achieved a 70% growth rate base on our last promotion. We would like to offer this to our ADSL customers to thank them for their continued patronage as well as attract a new base of customers who want to enjoy this data indulgence.”

FNB has in the past month made strides into the digital world with the launch of South Africa’s first banking App. Roper goes on to say “The increased emphasis on digital is deliberate and in line with our overall approach.  We have taken a customer centric view, championing the cause for low cost internet access and an increased digital presence.”

With the free YouTube promotion, FNB Connect now offers their ADSL clients free data in order to access popular social networking sites, Facebook, Twitter and YouTube respectively. FNB Connect offers unshaped data for ADSL, which means that users can expect a faster experience. “Our customers can expect quality free surfing at great speeds,” concludes Roper.
