Just got this from Sentech.....

RE: DISCONTINUATION OF MYWIRELESS
Sentech was a pioneer in the multi-media broadband market with the launch of MyWireless and BizNet in 2004. These products played an important enabling role in bringing multi-media to the South African market and were moderately successful.
However, due to the fast changing nature of the ICT market and entry of well-funded competitors, Sentech has not been able to sustain the momentum and growth of these products and services. In addition, the equipment delivering retail broadband services is now entering the planned redundancy period.
We therefore regret to advise you that Sentech is withdrawing from the retail telecommunications market. As a result the Company will discontinue the MyWireless service on 30 November 2009. You are kindly advised that our normal contractual arrangements will remain in force until the termination date.
In addition to our core business of Broadcasting Signal Distribution, Sentech will henceforth concentrate on offering a wholesale broadband network as a common platform for all service providers.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your valued patronage and to apologise for any inconvenience caused. If we can be of any assistance during the transition period please do not hesitate to contact our call centre on:

We thank you sincerely for your support.
