Thread: Opinions - Fastest Dial-up ISP in SA?

  1. #1

    Default Opinions - Fastest Dial-up ISP in SA?

    Provider: @lantic
    Price: R75/month unlimited
    Time: Saturday awie, 3:30+pm
    From: Blouberg (CT)

    Ping statistics for 155.239.157.254:
    Packets: Sent = 6961, Received = 6961, Lost = 0 (0% loss),
    Approximate round trip times in milli-seconds:
    Minimum = 91ms, Maximum = 246ms, Average = 145ms

    I download just over 200 megs a nite mon-thurs, and just over a gig on weekends.. for 75 beans that's awright ;) That totals round 7 gigs a month.. I don't know where Telkom got the DSL story wrong but hey if you have patience dialup is allright with R7 call [:)] I average round 5.2KB/s anytime (international) even if only connected at 48kbps.

    Provider: MWeb
    Price: R135/month

    Mweb ISDN is the fastest. It used to be UUNET corporate dial-ups until they switched over to SAIX POPS.

    @lantic is just a SAIX reseller, like most other ISP's. (@lantics support sucks.)

    I've always thought MWeb is very slow.. I download the same file from the same place with @lantic and then MWeb - @lantic 5+ KB/s, MWeb maybe 2KB/s if i'm lucky. They're overloaded, everyone uses them because they've been around longer than the rest... but the newer ISP's are faster IMHO, especially 56k dial-up.
