I'm a South African who has been living in the UK for the past 14 years. I'm moving back to Durban in the next 3 months and need some assistance regarding which broadband package to go for.
Now, having lived in the UK for so long I've been really spoilt with unlimited broadband for FREE as part of my Sky (DSTV) television package.
I'm a full-time sports trader so will need to have my PC online 24 hours a day. I don't download any movies or anything like that but just run a few trading packages that need to be left running. Speed is fairly important but not the main consideration. Most important to me is RELIABILITY. I simply CANNOT afford to have my network go down in the middle of a Live trade/in-running sporting event as it could cost me an absolute fortune.
I know very little about what is out there in SA at the moment so would appreciate any recommendations. To recap, the key for me is reliability and speed..but ideally would like an uncapped service (even though I wouldn't imagine that I use a heck of a lot of downloads). I use the internet mainly for information, email, occasionally to watch some sport, bit of Skype and the rest for running my trading software. I have a wife and 3 children so we could potentially have 3 or 4 people using the net at the same time. Thanks in anticipation.
