Hmmm... Seems so...

Wow, you must have been the happiest dialup user ever. I wish I got 384kbps when I was on dialup.

Time left = 19hrs 22min or 19.3 x 60 = 1158min x 60 = 69480sec. Then 128 / 12 = 11KB/s, therefore 11 x 69480 = 764.280MB + 150MB = 914.28MB or ~0.93GB

This has been bugging me. I did similar calculations to you and was getting way different answers. Then I read you wen for /12 not /8 - fair enough. Shoulda read closer. But now, now that I am reading closer, the above stood out:

Mmmm - so when you have reached 150MB on GPRS you will have your speed increased to 128...

Methinks this needs correction...

4. ## MTN 1-Day Unlimited (New) R50 still not available due date 9 april 2010

MTN4u... When I phone the call centre, they do not know what I'm talkin' 'bout. Let me wait for like 10mins, while reading off the site.

8. I got through and the guy I spoke to said there is a delay and it will only be some time next week.

This would be a innovative and good deal.
So much for this happening...

10. After I have used up this R50 MTN can go to hell and stick there service up where the sun dont shine... They have moved the date from the 28 Mach to 4 April then to the 6 April and then to the 9 April and just got off the phone with the call centre super sorry it in now moved to the 19 April so I told the super maybe 19 April 2020

11. Has anyone heard anything new about this 1-day bundle... is it really only going to be available only from the 19th or is that just an estimation?

15. I called 1555 data support and they said sometime in May. I wouldn't hold my breath for this service.
