Thread: R 1.14 per GB on uncapped ADSL account

  1. #1

    Default R 1.14 per GB on uncapped ADSL account

    Uncapped ADSL: R 1.14 per GB

    Uncapped Express+ ADSL subscribers make the most of unlimited usage accounts

    R500 per month for a 384k uncapped. I pay that for 5GB. Sounds good, Staff Reporter. Tell me more!

    Yes, but people will happily pay R499 for one speed daytime/nightime 384k.

    Why not do it since that will only use +-100 gigs max?

    Those that want the 4meg speeds, or at least their DSLAMs provide it, will happily pay R999.

    This, Neotel said, was a clear indication of the need for high bandwidth, high usage accounts in the country.
    They only figure this out now?

    During August one 384 Kbps subscriber used 873 GB – working out to R 1.14 per GB.
    4 gig down per day plus 1 gig per day up equals 800 gig in 30 days? that 384kb user has to have had a 4 meg line

    Isps only have themselves to blame. If all accounts were really uncapped at R100 per month they would still have made a profit. Sure, 1% of the userbase would go bananas and download "teh inerznet" but the rest would only use a few hundered megs a month.

    But no, now they restrict the life out of you and then they are supprised when they offer "uncapped" that only a handfull of people make use of it, and that most of the handfull make full use of it?

    Yea, ISPs only have themselves to blame.

    Neotel has also recently indicated that they were surprised by the high usage on their uncapped NeoConnect Prime offering. The telecoms provider said that they expected usage a bit over 15 GB per month, but what they found was that a monthly usage of around 100 GB was not uncommon

    uncapped is defined as no limits and will be used as such.

    Help me out here guys...
    Doesn't 'UNCAPPED' with a per gig price sound a little ironic
    Correct me if I'm wrong, but if it's uncapped at R500 and I use 100Gb, then it's R5 per gig? Or if I use 10Gb then it's R50 per gig?
    Why do we allow these articles to perpetuate the misconception around the term 'Uncapped'...
    In that case you can get uncapped for R79 per month if you opt to auto topup.
