    Free Internet speed upgrades for South Africans

    Just did a speed test. My d/l is still 20meg, but my upload speed has tripled from 2 to 6meg. FF on Afrihost. 20/2.

    Good news for slow Internet in South Africa

    I was able to do some decent gaming last night for the first time since the break, tried at various times since Friday, but last night was getting around 220ms most/a lot of the time for WOW European server. It did d/c a few times, but was fairly steady with latency. So Afrihost must have...

    Frogfoot to double fibre line speed for a limited time

    I have a 20mb FF line from Frogfoot via Afrihost in Gordons Bay. The doubling of speed - my case 20mb to 50mb is most welcome, though we have had a notification that FF will be upping their fees, and eventually Afrihost will pass that on to the customer - they have deferred it for a few months -...

    Is Afrihost now officially useless?

    Ditto this. I use their Airmobile 2XL, no problems at all, and I quite like that I get my Fibre and mobile in one go, on one invoice.

    Are you planning on playing Vanilla WoW?

    Lvl 35 and also having a Jol :) I would like to join a more decent guild, lvling a Warrior is a bit like sado-masochism, not much guild help either. So if anyone's got a half decent guild on Flamelash(Alliance), let me know. Despite that, I can't remember the last time I logged into Retail...

    Ok, good info, thanks :)

    Frogfoot service?

    Thanks, Leno. Ja, i suspected that it can't really improve much. I use a cable, but i suspect the wifi will be the same. Ah well, 180ms is not bad, it's not like i'm playing a FPS.

    Frogfoot service?

    Just one other thing. I was a bit disappointed with my World of Warcraft latency. On ADSL i had about 220ms. After the Fibre installation it only went down to 180ms, hardly an earth-shattering improvement - EU server.

    Frogfoot service?

    Well, Frogfoot laid the cables and went live 1st of this month. I switched from an 8meg ADSL to a 20meg Fibre line, stayed with my current ISP(Afrihost), and everything was seamless. A couple of things. Frogfoot have an optimistic view of their Go Live date for your area. Don't get carried away...

    Telkom cutting your copper within the next 30 days

    I wish they would do this to me. I'm trying to cancel my Telkom account/line via their online 'service', this would save me a lot of time and effort. Come rip out my line please!

    YouTube closes accounts tied to Hong Kong influence operations

    Well done, Google. Now stop monitoring my every move. There's nothing creepier than visiting a restaurant you haven't been to in ages, and your phone informing you that you were last here 3 years ago.
