    Amazon Shipping to South Africa

    Hi My experience, a year ago is that they will not / would not deliver to SA. Also, the Post Office only, not through other means, before they did stop.

    Will raising the drinking age curb alcohol abuse in SA?

    They can't manage the drug problems, they can't manage the existing alcohol problems, they can't manage the crime problems and - must I list all the rest? Then the police are caught delivering booze in uniform from a police van???

    Telkom fixed-line decline continues

    Why the surprise? Telkom have removed fixed line from my area some three years after laying a new 9km long copper cable to replace the faulty old one - we have a choice - Telkom LTE or nothing.... That's why the private "dish" companies are thriving!

    RIP Dion Wired

    Not surprised! Based on the times I've walked in, looked around, been ignored, interrupted staff to ask for something to be told "no", don't know" or "out of stock" I'll not miss them!

    You can still upgrade to Windows 10 at no cost

    Not true it seems - neither or google allow you to connect with a 2016 date set due to certificates. Anyone have a solution for this?

    Why cellular calls are a waste of money

    Yes, I still use conventional calls... When I'm unable to connect with Whatsapp - says connecting which means nothing - then says ringing which means the other side might be ringing...

    Telkom launching new way to cancel accounts

    What about people, like my elderly father, who does not have internet, does not have online access and does not have a smart phone? there must be a huge number of "un-connected" people who can only go into a Telkom store???

    The unlikely uncapped ADSL provider which crushes the competition

    Forget it! Telkom can't give me better than 1.4 mBs on a good day and an average of 0.9 mBs... I've switched to one of the dish system providers and get 6mBs and 75GB for R 150 a month less! So I don't have a landline? Yes, I use it maybe twice a month...
