Where can you buy equipment capable of these speeds (14.4 / 21mbps) out of interest? Because I have looked around and havent found any, nor do any of the people at Vodashop (or all the over variations of their stores) seem to know absolutly anything about this. I want to buy a 3G modem, but it seems really stupid to buy one now which is only capable of 7.2.
I know the K4505 and I think its the E188 can do it.... but they havent heard of either of these.. Anyone got any info on this please thank you! (And yes I agree with the price thing, bring the flippin price of the bandwidth down!)
If I do any speed tests at speedtest.net, I only get scores of around 3.6Mbps, but downloading from the U.S. iTunes Store (which uses multiple connections) I can get over 6.5Mbps.
Has anyone else noticed this?
Which tower? - I only get dial up speeds in Cape Twon...
Even if this is not an april fools joke, I almost never get above 2mbps when doing speed tests, and that is on a very good day. What a waste.
Vodacom seems to have the same business strategy as Telkom. Increase the speed, improve the technology and make you pay the same per GB. This has the side effect of you consuming MORE and thus paying MORE .
Unfortunately at some point people are not going to care about the 100Gbps tech when they're paying R200 per GB.....and we're reaching that point very fast. I didn't care about Vodacom's 7.2mpbs upgrade, and don't care about their 14.4 mbps upgrade...it's too expensive period.
i dont even get over 1.2mbps on HSDPA 7.2mbit if i'm lucky!
dont these idiots realize some of us can see past a bit of wording on a marketing campaign??
If real is what you can download, watch, upload and see, then 'real' is simply Mweb Internet.

CellC & Vodacom think its OK to charge more in middle of contracts, shows what they think of you, when your contract ends, hit their wallet
I hope this is the April fools article, but the prices should definitely decrease first.
