    Fibre in Jeffreys Bay coming, built by Igen

    Interested why you say backup power more expensive than a highsite? The Ubiquity OLT seem to use max 100W as their power supplies are rated at 100W A cell tower uses a lot more power Biggest thing would be security I think, hopefully the nodes are in secure locations etc

    Frogfoot service?

    Are you on wifi or lan cable? I see people mention 165-180ms normally for EU, you wont get much better than that with the speed of light etc Edit: here are some graphs from a datacenter in NL to a few SA servers, 173-191ms https://smokeping.serverius.net/smokeping.cgi?target=SouthAfrica

    Frogfoot service?

    Generally from reading the forum their network doesn't seem too bad. They had issues a few weeks back with congestion but at least they identified it and admitted the problem and fixed it. There are horror stories of other providers taking months to sort this out or even admit it.

    Yeah Frogfoot is supplying the backbone links for the Summerstrand apartments that went with Blitz (we meant to be DFA), but we are still dealing with Blitz itself as customers still Do you know who they sold it to? Frogfoot themselvs? Would love Frogfoots pricing compared to Blitz :p
