Thread: What does Telkom's price cut means for you?

    IPConnect is used by all of SA’s existing internet service providers (ISPs) to access Telkom’s fixed-line data network in order to provide internet services.
    I'm fairly sure that statement is not accurate if resellers of SAIX-based ADSL data accounts are also considered to be ISPs.

    The ISP charge is the most significant cost faced by ISPs in providing ADSL services.
    And I think that should read "IPConnect charge".

    That should read "officer".

    As far as I understand SAIX also use the IPC to connect ADSL users to their infrastructure... SAIX is an ISP essentially while the IPC is a system for connecting endpoint infrastructure to ISPs.

    A telkom guy on the forum already said TI doesn't use IPC. They aren't allowed to for some reason.

    That was "ranger" - the TI guy.... he actually says that they want to use IPC so that they can get the same treatment as other ISPs!!

    To the wise ones out there - I changed the line to Afrihost (R279), saves R10.
    You're using now 3 times more backhaul(384 vs 1meg) on the dslam than you previously. That's why telkom charge more.

    How does the SAIX connection work then - I thought they were automatically transitioned on to the IPC method once it was implemented??

    SAIX connections use native/natural routing, that is the global routing table on the ESRs. So if one ADSL sends packets to another on the same ESR, the packets will take the shortest path, that is go no further into the network than the ESR.

    IPC connections terminate within half-duplex VRFs (basically VPNs) where all packets are forwarded to the ISP's IPC Link (could be clear across the country) irrespective if the packets are destined for another ADSL connection right next to the one sending.

    I was in the better quality camp, but I've been thinking about this issue, and I am now firmly in the pass the savings on camp...

    Mweb's account runs just fine for me, and every extra cent I can get my hands on these days counts.

    All that has happened hear is that they have taken the So-Called-Free-Modem out of the mix, lets face it you can only get away with somethings for so long - best to duck out with a smile and not show that they were over playing the issue, heck there must be a mountain of ADSL 1 modems out there by now

    384K is a total joke - 1 to 4 meg lines are a MINIMUM with at least 39 Gig data a month

    Realistically we should see a decrease of 10% by ISP but its a case of whose going to flinch first

    Not all of us are as lucky as you saffakanera, hard drives are expensive.
