    MWeb even threw in a B-BEE card to try and trump its competitors in !CASA's mind - is this a sign of weakness or confidence on MWeb's part?

    As much as I generally do not agree with MWeb's traditional overcharging business model, I would support MWeb getting Telkodemonopolies' WiMax licence - if Telkodemonopolies' under-the-table dealings ever come to light...

    What equipment do you require to access a WiMax network?

    I would want to get on this trial for the simple reason that the connections will be uncapped!!

    I'm disappointed with the mentioned speeds.

    I don't know why this is the case, but whenever there is a trial like this, I NEVER see any MyADSL users being selected for the trial. Telkom Wimax, Neotel and now MWEB Wimax - nobody from MyADSL. C'mon guys ... we are the perfect candidates for these trials since we'll perform all the required tests and give good and constructive feedback.

    Let me guess, people who are taking part in these trials, only check their mail once every 2 weeks.

    Lets hope that some MyADSL users get chosen.

    I am also getting suspicious of these trials...

    how likely is is that no myadsl members ever get chosen?

    The speeds are terrible, I was hoping for at least 4mb to compete with Telkom

    I think nobody on these forums like being overcharged, that's why nobody is with MWEB, and therefore not considered for the trials?

    Randburg ---> 20km radius. Wonder if it reaches me :/ Doubt it though

    Anyway we have MWEB so if I ever get the trial I will let you all know

    MWEB wasn't my choice though I am just sharing the connection with the family living next door on the same property

    Jansen said MWEB will be trialling a number of uncapped connectivity options aimed at the consumer...
    And then after that they will probably start capping like iBurst did
