    yeah, well.... the problems are the contention ratios etc. and that would be skewed, but yeah, won't mind paying a tad more for that type of "Service" from home, but yeah... the moment the words "business" comes up, then the pictures $$$$$$$$ lights up, and then also the clients then expects...

    @websquadza answered from a gaming perspective, but from a networking perspective: remember `The Internet` is just a bunch of loosely connected networks, moving some packets between each other. The major design goals (which was achieved) was to have a resilient connection from point A to point...

    Nope, equal cost routes, and then the router decides I'll sent one packet this way, and then the other that way. BGP is "costing" typically at a macro level,ie. either this ISP or that ISP, so you have two routes that way, and then the one ISP has 3 routers to the endpoint and the other has only...

The expected results for curl http://loadshedding.eskom.co.za/LoadShedding/GetStatus is a single digit (or perhaps a connection...

    @Vumatel, what is this R999 "Connection Fee" and how do you justify this?

    Okay, I'm not defending Vumatel, I'll tell you about lots of issues I have with their model, and the reality is this: nobody else is in the neighbourhood serving my complex, other than Vumatel that I helped by pushing my landlord and managing agent... I'm very sorry for the flats behind me that...

    ISP least affected by DDOS attacks

    The problem is not from the ISPs, but it's caused by users with lax security and cheap devices that is the source of the problem as their devices have been compromised and used in these attacks. Can you count the number of cheap chinese security/web-cameras? not to mention cheap routers with...
