Our substation is already bad. Like, clockwork after loadshedding, CityPower needs to send their technicians out to...

    Eskom wants to stop 4-hour load-shedding in Johannesburg

    Bromhof/Boskruin 6B normally has 6-8 hours of loadshedding. 4.5 hours + another 1.5-3.5 hours for CityPower to get the grid back up.

    Stage 2 loadshedding from today until... 11pm Monday

    We will be loadshed from 12:00 Friday, until sometime on Sunday, because it takes CityPower 2 days to get our power back after loadshedding.

    Six months free Amazon Prime for Vodacom users

    I tried Prime for a few months and their app needs serious work though. Really difficult to find interesting/new things that we would want to watch. Had to scroll through hundreds of bollywood stuff, that we have no interest in.

    It all depends on their suppliers as well. Some items will state when it will ship and from which supplier the item it being sourced. Before adding to cart, look at the section "Ships in x to y work days" and a link to the supplier.

    Anyone know anyone at Raru?

    Lol, good luck in getting your Refund.. They keep telling me "next week", "next week", "next week". Pathetic service. I will never use them again, no matter how well they try "sweet talk" me.

    Afrihost/Vumatel Speed Upgrade - Terrible support service

    I just want to clarify something here. The techy I spoke to (Please call me), really took his time to assist me. We probably spent a good 1 hour+ trying to figure out what the problem was. 1) He asked that I connect a device directly on to the CPE - we discovered that the service was running...

    Afrihost/Vumatel Speed Upgrade - Terrible support service

    Thanks for the reply. I eventually got it sorted. Seems like the only way to get support from Afrihost is to ask them to call you instead.
