at speeds of a whopping 156kbps
What does this mean? Uncapped 156kbps?for basic internet (peak speeds of up to 156kbps)
"Nice". Why do I still have to pay for a telephone if I only want data?
so its either 10gb at 2.4mbs or uncapped at 156k...
poor choices imo.
should be uncapped 2.4mbs for a higher price.
why does this country suck so much? (not meant to be answered)
If you stand for nothing, you'll fall for everything.
I currently pay R400 for 2GB on 3G. R469 for uncapped sounds very good.
Even at 156k (almost 20 KB/s), you'll still be able to download a LOT more than anything else at that price.
I like this a lot.
The 2G option seems a bit pricey at R299, so much for Neotel......guess I won't be signing up with them after all.
"Ask me no questions and I'll tell you no lies......."
I have an answer for this but it will require a bit of support, the basic details are you will get a 2meg up and 2m down account - concurrency dependant.
Simply put with a 1000 people per node in a local area we can build a cable network with low latency.
For all or intents and purposes it will be an optical network.
The user buys their own equipment and the initial fee is R500 plus R100pcm. They can use the cable connection for phone calls etc etc. Should I have enough money to buy Broadcast rights we can eventually have TV down the cable too. Because it is optical it will be relatively simple to upgrade to a 100mps connection.
As it will be based on a mesh system/p2p it is highly unlikely that once fully set up it will ever suffer crashes unless the supplier fails, but hey if we have enough money and the local loop unbundling actually goes ahead we can get our own undersea cable!
Ok so here is the question, do you know of anyone who might be interested in helping set up a node in the local area with enough users for this community/co-operative based operation to get some traction?
When I say to people this is possible they are understandably cautious but as you all know South Africa is at the point that the USA was at 15 years ago and the UK 5-8 years ago. Those who are brave enough to grab this opportunity will more than likely make a bit of money but only after three years.
Should you be interested I will be setting up a special web site about this soon but in the means time please use the contact form
And let me know what your interest is, if you are a venture capitalist well, then lets talk, if you like me have faith that by looking towards the future we can together make the changes we want, then let me know anyway. If you want to subscribe then let me know that too. When we get enough subscribers we can get a investor on-board who does have enough cash.
To make a million doesn't take a lot but to make it for twenty years takes planning for the next 100 years - where will you be in thirty years from now?
TO pay the rent I do SEO& SEM this lingerie web site has gone from 0 - 2 in the Google rankings in 8 weeks and should be at 4 in 6 months to see what other results I have gotten for my clients all of whom have gotten to first position for their chosen keywords click here and follow the links on the right to see for yourself.

So you'll get 20 KB/s just about all the time. Plus, NO dial-up charges, ISP costs or installation.
Now, if only they can increase their coverage quick
Some strange offerings so far from Neotel. Hard to see who they are targetting really. Slow uncapped wireless seems a bit odd to me.
I thought the idea of wireless was that it was fast?
Still, at least they are offering some form of competition to Telkom. Still nothing at all that interests me yet though. :|
