    How Netflix killed DStv in SA

    Multichoice's Supersport offering and coverage of major sport events are amazing - I must give it to them. What I tried to say is that you can get a streaming service for +- R200 p/m that include all the major channels over the world including major sport channels. I am not sure about the legal...

    How Netflix killed DStv in SA

    Dstv is overpriced, why would anyone pay R900 per month just for the priviledge to watch rugby, cricket and outdated shows, endless repearts and adverts. If it was not for sport, Dstv would have been a forgotten outdated product a long time ago. There are IP streaming services available for...

Also a good router is a must if...

    New all day Unlimited 4G R479

    For what I can see, Netflix, Youtube and Dstv Now quality looks like HD (720p), I hardly see any buffering and Xbox updates and downloads are fast. Everyone is happy with the connection and use it mostly for streaming. When using VPN it jumps to 1080p Full HD - without it 720p. Usage currently...

    Vodacom 5G

    All good and well to launch a 5G service, but the majority of South Africans do not have a 5G capable devices. And to offer 200GB + 200GB 5G service at +- 300mbps is not going to last a whole month for most people. I know of many people on Rain 5G that uses 1.5TB to 3TB per month. My usage on...

    The fastest speed test you've done on Rain 4G?

    The best Speedtest we ever achieved on the Rain network with Samsung S8+ and getting 4G+ on phone was 168 mbps download and 29.1 upload. That was the days when the network was still great before all the congestion started. I am on the Unlimited off peak package. These days we hardly get 40 mbps...
