I think it is time we refresh our memories on what the problems with Telkom's version of ADSL is:
It is overprices when compared with our trading partner countries
It is technologically outdated when compared with our trading partners
(eg max speed is 512kb/s)
The pricing structure where the line cost is much higher than bandwidth cost
Measured on both international and local - should be international only as this is where Telkom claims the cost is
The size of the cap is also far too low to fit a broadband service.
The ports priorities should be published for users (and potential) users so informed decisions can be made
Service level Agreement: The "Best effort" statement is laughable from a commercial perspective. You tell your boss your work is not completed in time but you gave him "your best effort".
The incompetence of the helpdesk staff.
The 3-weeks-if-you-are-lucky installation delay.
So, if the rumours of changing the cap rules holds any truth, it will reduce one of the trouble spots, but a large number remain.
South Africa needs World Class Broadband at World Competitive Prices.
