well I must say at R600 pm for 1GB that is soooo typically South african taking people for an expensive ride... the article may be wrong but if they are right then Vodacom are farking stupid...
they should be charging a max of R200.00 for that offering...
funny how all over the world people want to get rich, but in south africa people want to get rich quickly...

Nope, people want to get rich quick everywhere, the difference here is that companies get away with ripping the public off because regulators don't do their job.

R600 p/m is ridiculous :P What would be stupid is if anyone actually uses this service for that price.

Is 3G dead ???.
The emergence of DVB-H explains a puzzling purchase made last year by Crown Castle of Houston, Texas. The company, which runs the BBC’s transmitter network in the UK, paid $12 million for a 5-megahertz slice of coast-to-coast radio spectrum in the US. At the time no one knew why. But Crown Castle transmitters near Pittsburgh are already broadcasting DVB-H to prototype Nokia mobile TV phones. That purchase may turn out to be an amazing bargain, considering other operators paid billions for 3G licenses which were originally meant to deliver video services.
It's real enough, I've seen the press release on ITWeb, which is regurgitated right here on mybroadband, link at http://tinyurl.com/5u83g (shortened for being too ugly)
