    Video entertainment in South Africa - no DStv or TV licence required

    Lets be honest here, the price of the tv license is not that much. The savings you get from purchasing a tv vs monitor more than offsets the tv license expense. So, stream, buy a tv and get on with it.

    NAPAfrica questions

As I understand it is to provide a shorter, more direct route to other peers on NA, thereby reducing the use of your upstream bandwidth? Is this correct?

    Yeah. PCQ + Queue tree is the way to go. Basically it divides the bandwidth between every device connected. So 1 device gets 100%, 2 devices will get 50/50 and so forth. But, using priorities in said queues you can give higher priorities to certain ips/protocols etc. Worked nicely for my problem
