    MultiChoice launches DStv Internet with MTN

    This seems like a desperate attempt to stay relevant. Entering the ISP market at this point in time? A sinking company grabbing at thin air. I like it.

    Huawei B535

    I have the same problem. When I flip the light switch, all the lights in that room go off. Bizarre.

    nightmare dealing with new vox installation, help please!

    What did your contract say? iirc, their contract states that if you are in a contract, and you move, and your new address is not covered by Vox, you are liable for the cancellation fee. Regardless of reason.

    Update. Packet loss remains. I have reverted to plugging a cable directly into my laptop with no change. To add to my frustration, my Wife's company uses as their cloud storage. Their servers sit in Amsterdam as far as the IP geolocation tells me. This complicates my life a lot...

    High Site space pricing

    Nee man, post them publicly. People wanna see. I used to manage 150+ towers for an ISP. The price varied from R300 per item to R1500 per item. It really comes down to three factors: Location, location, location.

    Most of South Africa opens up under lockdown level 3 – here’s a comprehensive list

    I think guavamunt has lost all control of this 'lockdown'. They could have just done absolutely nothing and the Covid numbers would not have been any different. All these "level" changes mean nothing.
