    Vodacom Please Call Me - The truth

    I see the article has been updated with the court case topic. Re-read it again. As stated; the issue was never about who invented it or not. All the comments above on that aspect are completely off-topic.

    Vodacom Please Call Me - The truth

    Unfortunately this article also got it completely wrong. The CC ruling was not about who invented the service at all. As pointed out above, IP typically belongs to the employer. Rather it ruled on a previous offer for some compensation. The CC then rules the CEO must come up with a reasonable...

    Tx! Getting the tool is easy. Knowing how to drive it, more complicated. :)

    Vintage Computers up for grabs - JHB Area

    Indeed :) I'm looking for as hi-res as possible, more like posters than just magazine ads, though. This is a also great resource for magazines, especially the technical, engineering and electronic ones from the day. Some of them go back to the 50's. :)...

    And you will see that Rain will be even faster. Now think a bit about why.

    It's responses like these that make me wonder why I bother to engage.

    Why Vodacom depletes your new mobile data first

    Indeed, but I kept at it until it was in place. :) But at least we tell you what we're busy with, unlike many who will never give any info out about what's being put in place or how difficult it can be. :)

    Why Vodacom depletes your new mobile data first

    Mus have been before 2010, but close to it. Can't really recall. Those days it was all contract, no prepaid. Remember how we battled to get prepaid billing in place? You guys roasted me for two years...... :rolleyes:

    Why Vodacom depletes your new mobile data first

    VC introduced Night-Owl long before Cell C, IIRC. It was really just a doubling of your allocation with the second bundle running after Midnight.

    I don't understand a word you're saying, sorry.

    Why Vodacom depletes your new mobile data first

    It does, actually. When you've not used up your monthly allocation. If you use up your allocation every month, then it does not apply, fully agree. But what happens if you don't? How do the SP fulfill it's legal obligation? Practically?

    Why Vodacom depletes your new mobile data first

    If a link is not measure in bits/second, pray please tell how it is measured. And how does frequency affect speed in any material way? As you seem to imply. If you have a certain carrier frequency and you have an allocation of spectral bandwidth in there, it still calculates to a specific...

    The terms of the contract, yes. Especially where your SP agrees to contractually supply you with a certain amount of data every month. Which is what you are paying for, right? Those words and cr@p are actually there to protect both parties.

    And you think network operators don't do this???

    Why Vodacom depletes your new mobile data first

    Networks are made up of links that are rated in Gb/s and they run at those speeds, irrespective if anyone is using them or not. And their cost is fixed., not a function of utilization. In other words, EXACTLY like a road system where the cost is fixed, irrespective if the road is empty or...

    Why Vodacom depletes your new mobile data first

    Not sure how you get to this point? Networks WANT you to use data. On after-hours data, two relevant points; - Free Night-Owl data was started by Vodacom, years ago. I know this because I did it. - Off-peak is now between 1am and 6am with loads still at about 70% of peak.
