    Telkom ADSL info raises concern

    Telkom’s automatic access to ADSL information – which consumers and businesses believe should be protected - raised concern recently among both consumers and ISPs.

    On the issue of potentially using some ADSL information to benefit its own retail division, Telkom says that “being a good corporate citizen, Telkom will not engage in anti-competitive behaviour.”
    ... Who are they trying to kid with that. Telkom and Anti-Competitive behaviour? .... never!

    Ja, well... Just go to http://userstats.adsl.saix.net/ and enter a username - no need for the password. Access user stats for any DSL account you can think of...

    Yes, it seems a bit haphazard. With mweb accounts it doesn't seem to want a password, with @lantic it does. Telkom usernames are no problem either. Discovered this recently when trying to locate a mysterious "third user" who'd been stealing a clients bandwidth.

    It is true though - but only since Telkom have no actual competition, thanks to our favourite independent group.

    Yup. They have access to your username and password, and even if you change the password you have to do it through them, and they can see the new password anyway.

    Even worse, they tell customers NOT to change the default password on the modem - because if someone forgets the new password, they won't be able to help them.

    Pls folks this is the least of our worries.

    Access to affordable, unrestricted, true broadband capacity product/service is what should concern us.

    NEOTEL allegedly has DIRECT (Telkom infrastructure) INDEPENDENT access to ample international bandwidth. Their corporate distribution network is making money already.

    Use this as advantage over Telkom dirty marketing games, fight them with prices.

    Given those factors why are we still struggling with having affordable, unrestricted, true broadband service?
