    Cool Ideas Fibre ISP – Feedback Thread 3

    Might have been mentioned but does anyone know if line installations will still go ahead and how to rush them if they won't continue due to the lockdown? I'm moving houses and need internet for work. I really don't want to use mobile data for a month. I've had to push my moving date forward to...

    21-day nationwide lockdown announced for South Africa

    I'm assuming house moving companies aren't "essential", do moving tenants just pay the lease in 2 places if they were going to move into an empty place and now have to stay at the current place for another month?

    Do you have any idea how that will work? I'm assuming the moving companies will have to shut down.

    21-day nationwide lockdown announced for South Africa

    Am I correct to assume that midnight Thursday is between Thursday and Friday or is it between Wednesday and Thursday? Technically 00:00 is midnight Thursday right after Wednesday but I usually interpret it as the midnight of the day that just passed.

    21-day nationwide lockdown announced for South Africa

    I'm meant to move on Saturday.... Does anyone know if moving will be blocked? And what do you do if you can't move and your current lease is done? This is a f-up.

    Cool Ideas tested. Failed. Home-Connect tested. Failed. Next?

    Hey, how did you get a test account on Cool Ideas? I'm moving and will be picking a new ISP. I'm curious to see if I can test Afrihost vs Cool Ideas international on my current line to see what latency is like as I'm sure international latency and speed shouldn't change too much with different...

    Which is your preferred ISP for Octotel?

    Hi All, I'm moving at the end of the month and will be moving to an area with Octotel. I am currently using Afrihost on Openserve and the quality has been decent. I see that their pricing isn't as competitive on Octotel so I just wanted to see what everyone here is using. I don't mind paying...

    Telkom mobile network down

    This is why Vodacom can charge what they want, the competition is trash. Customer support hanging up on someone is not okay. Vodacom is trash too, just slightly less so.

    Afrihost - Pure Fibre Feedback Thread

    Which VPN do you guys recommend if I still want to use P2P (preferably at close to my connection speed)? I see windscribe doesn't allow P2P in South Africa. I'm thinking of getting NordVPN or ExpressVPN (I'm not limited to these, I just want good performance) as they seem to perform well. I'm...

    Speed fine on N1 Hanover

    I don't think you get a fine when going more than 30/40 than the speed limit. Might have to go to court.

    Hardware Bargains - Open Thine Wallet

    Can't speak to the quality but I don't believe the year is represented in the model number specifically. That is a 2019 model though. QxF = 2017 QxFN = 2018 Qx0R = 2019. Replace the small x with the series number.
