Further, it worries me that they are delaying the bigger cities. They even say themselves that they want to test smaller areas first to avoid problems. Surely, it is just a 3G network which has been tested extensively by almost every provider worldwide and with the right equipment there shouldn't be anything preventing them from doing a nationwide launch. Yet, they are delaying the other cities which to me is a sign of either budget equipment or too small capacity. If they really believed in their own product it would be in their own interest to switch it on everywhere at the same time
around 600kb/s for downloads is an excellent speed. i get around 120kb/s on vodacom 3g here in durban.
Their explanation at the launch for choosing pe was that they had not deployed much of the 900mhz frequency down here, so reassigning the frequencies to HSPA+ would be easier.
They call it re farming the frequencies and it makes sense, its going to be tricky re farming big metro's as they have to take into account the phone cababilities of their client base
and will they support the new voice frequency etc
To be honest i have only used it briefly for testing, I have ADSL at home. Next week ill prob use it at work when their line is congested hehe
