    Frogfoot Port Elizabeth

    Frogfoot. What can I say? Slow fibre. Erratic line speeds. Constant breakdowns. Very frustrating. Best avoided, if possible.

    Trying to cancel a Telkom email only service

    I am no longer a Telkom landline or ADSL customer. When I changed ISP's years ago, I opted to retain my Telkom email address for a small monthly fee of R20. However, halfway through last year, for no reason I can explain, the Telkom webmail stopped accepting my login credentials, meaning I...

    Thank you for sorting out my line speed issue

    Thank you to Cool Ideas (especially Riaan) and Frogfoot for sorting out my line speed issue. I'm new to them but finding Cool Ideas very responsive. What a relief to be able to have tickets resolved in good time, to speak to friendly voices and to get explanations. I'm very grateful. And I love...

    Migrating from one ISP to another is very frustrating

    I felt I was not getting good service from Axxess. Response to support tickets started getting slower, and responses received were kind of unhelpful. Sort of vague one liners. Then, just before I decided to cancel, there were some service interruptions which took a long time to resolve. With...

    Investigating LTE as a backup solution for my fibre line

    Ok, so I went out an got a SIM from Pep stores, changed the tariff plan to Smart Broadband and loaded it with some data. But I'm beggared if I can make it work in my LTE router. I got the SMS's when I turned the router on but it just says no internet. Is there a waiting period or something for...

    Migrating from one ISP to another is very frustrating

    Well, Cool Ideas have helped me a lot. I am moving from Axxess DSL to Cool Ideas. So far, they have been very responsive to tickets and calls. Even on Facebook and here on this forum they have responded whereas trying to communicate with Axxess was like shouting into a void. The difficulty will...

    Hey, awesome. I didn't even think about that - thank you! I wonder how the RICA works on that?

    Migrating from one ISP to another is very frustrating

    If only I could. Notice to ISP on 6 Jun. They required a calendar month notice, so service could only be discontinued on 31 July. I was already quite cool towards them by then. I'm getting cooler and cooler towards fibre with all these delays and funny rules and regs. It's like the lockdown - a...
