    iPhone Xs vs iPhone 11 Pro

    Broadband in South Africa compared to the world

    Was recently in Kenya. They have way cheaper internet than us, by far! For R50 I got 3gb on my SIM and that wasn’t even a great deal. Lots of places had WiFi and 4G was everywhere even in rural. Ok we have it too but it costs too much. Thankfully prices are coming down.

    Uncapped mobile data packages - Vodacom, MTN, and Rain respond

    Spectrum is limited my ass. Other countries have uncapped mobile no problem. It’s just greed from SA providers. R150 a gig is an outrage.

    How the DA will make Internet access cheaper

    We need a national internet program to provide internet at cost to citizens. Private companies aren’t gonna do it out of their own.

    More South Africans will keep their old iPhones in 2019

    Yeah I'd like an iPhone X or XS for that nice OLED screen but the price is just outrageous. 30k for a phone? You must be joking.
