Happy that at least there is some drop in pricing and that they're actually regulating Telkom, if this does actually happen! Hope that ISPs are quick and willing to pass this saving on to us!
Update: ICASA today said that Telkom will reduce the cost of the IPConnect product by 30%.
I understand all the naysayers having a go but if the amount of money spent on IPC by the ISPs is in the ballpark I think it is, the initial savings to them will be huge.
MWEB has been pretty good with bringing about change, I will trust in them to continue in this fashion and pass on said saving to the consumer. I don't expect immediate results, but now that this decrease is in place, the ball has started rolling and hopefully Telkom won't put out their foot and stop it xD
Celine: "I'm not saying you're stupid, I just think you have bad luck when it comes to thinking."
IPC ISPs have been raped by Telkom as much as consumers have been raped by Telkom, ISPs will be reluctant to reduce their pricing but market forces will kick in and force them to pass on the savings to consumers, all we have to do is be patient and realistic.
