I have decided to inject all of us MyADSL members with some consumer power, so I am kickstarting this thread, in the hopes that together we can define our own term like (or similar to) "Consumer Broadband", i.e. what does the consumer believe broadband actually is, what does the consumer not consider to be a broadband service, what are the criteria etc etc etc.
Please post your ideas on this thread, and we will then nail the likes of Sentech & Telkomonopoly thrusting adverts down our throats of broadband this & that.
First step: just state what you believe broadband is from your (consumer) point of view.
I believe it is an Internet Connectivity Service that has the potential to always be connected (i.e. allowing for some consumer defined acceptable level of downtime from the Service Provider's side), the service is offered at a fixed monthly subscription, and has a speed that is at least 512Kb(its)ps (minimum). Provision of such a service must have a minimum guaranteed Service Level, as defined by a Service Level Agreement between Consumer & Service Provider.
