    Don't worry, the 71c petrol price hike next week will counter-act this lovely news... ^_^ we'll continue to get assr4ped as is always the case for middle-class South Africans who need to sustain the other 95% of the country

    So much negativity.

    If it's only a 2% drop i'll throw my toys out the cot like everyone else, but for now this news is about as good as it gets around these parts. Any kind of drop in IPC pricing makes absolutely everything better.

    We wont see any of the savings. ISP bosses will buy themselves some new houses etc.

    I think a 20% decrease won't change the price we as customers pay for Internet access.. the big boys will use it to plow more money into their networks..

    a 50% decrease will def see price cuts for us plebs though.

    What a lame article. when you pop something like that up have some facts not just a 1 April (FOOL) 2012 date for the saving to start.

    What gave it away for me was the dates .. no not the obvious first of April but this

    ICASA will engage with industry to reduce the price of Telkom’s IPConnect (IPC) service. This will be from 31 March 2012
    Results the very next day? Think about it, when have Icasa ever delivered on any of their deadlines on time?

    You're being taken for April fools

    I'm also thinking along the lines of no savings but based on 200X price this is a massive reduction spin story lmao.. that and usual usage model giving massive saving if u use a large enough pipe that no current companies qualify for lmao

    I guess a negative decrease is still a decrease

    I really hope MWEB doesn't drop pricing now so that all ISPs can reduce shaping.

    Daytime speeds on uncapped are atrocious.
