    Santam Insurance vs Outsurance

    What area are you in? From my understanding Santam does nearly all car claims on a "desktop" basis meaning an assessor hardly ever goes out physically to a panelshop / car. There thus should not really be a reason for 3/4 day delays.

    Santam Insurance vs Outsurance

    More tham likely a regional issue. A friend in the Paarl part owns and runs a large panel ahop in Paarl and he's never complained about Santam not paying or their rates.

    Santam Insurance vs Outsurance

    Repairing a 14 year old car with new parts? There's not many insurers that I know of where that would be 1st option. Would anyway quickly make the car "uneconomical" to repair.

    Santam Insurance vs Outsurance

    Interesting that many Outsurance assessors have left to rather work for Santam. I know of at least 5 just in our area. Work environment, culture and way of doing things just completely different.

    Any pitfalls to inverter aircons??

    Had my Daiken inverter ones now for more than 7 years, not a single issue. Just opt for a proper brand/supplier and you should be sorted.

    RSAweb, wifi speed question.

    So my 100/25 fibre line has been running for about 10 days now. Overall I am satisfied, no downtime and Netflix and everything else loads quickly and does not buffer. Various Speedtests over wifi via Mybroadband & Ookla apps has never achieved a result of over 60mbps, even if sitting 2 metres...

    Which Android Box to Buy?

    Bought an Ematic this week, works perfectly. Netflix & Google certification & ethernet port main reason. Interface looks very similar to that of my Samsung tv's and very easy to setup and use.

    Octotel trenching in new area

    Just an FYI. 10 weeks after the installation team passed my house my fibre is active. Took a long long time but at least its done. Must say the service received from both Octotel & RSAweb was excellent. Installation into house went very smooth and was neatly done. Activation bit of a struggle...

    Just spoke to a guy from RSAweb and started my application for fibre. Spoke to him this afternoon and promised he will phone back as he was out of the office and he actually phoned back after hours. He indicated that the Octotel fibre for my area is live so the application is in. Checked...

    Cell C pulls plug on fixed LTE, leaving ISPs, consumers in the lurch

    Only issue with this package is the throttling which kicks in. 10Mbps to start off with (which is ok depending on your needs and number of people using it), 4Mbps after 150GB & then 2Mbps after 200GB usage.
