    Possibly due to risk of theft or perhaps it's simply not economical for them to do so. Pulling several kilometers worth of cable for twenty homes doesn't make financial sense.

    If you work at Telkom get in touch with planning and they will tell you what the score is with your complex and if or when they will install underground cable to the estate

    I've played Ebotse quite a few times and the clubhouse and administration office most certainly have a fixed line internet service. You might want to have a chat with them about it and then liaise with the body corporate, because I'm sure your body corporate will have a solution. Ebotse is fairly "exclusive" so if there is no solution, there will be some sort of outcry...
    Internet the way it was meant to be. Launch details will become Crystal Clear very soon...

    Ok, it seems like the HOA at Ebotse are finally doing something. Ebotse is going to get a third party company to install a fibre optic network in the estate. YES!!

There are already conduits in the ground. Does anyone know of a way to get them to install an adsl line, or an alternative that is good enough?
