Dimension Data has put up a for-sale sign for its Mweb Internet service provider (ISP) business.
Techcentral exclusively reported today that Dimension Data has appointed Standard Bank to lead the sale process.
Four years ago Dimension Data, which is owned by Japan’s NTT, bought 100% control of Mweb from MultiChoice Group – which at the time was owned by Naspers.
The company is an ISP based in South Africa since 1997.
It is a division of Internet Solutions Digital Ltd, a subsidiary of Dimension Data, and its headquarters are located in the Mweb Building in Parow, Cape Town.
It is one of South Africa’s oldest consumer ISPs.
