    Mybroadband or anyone willing to take on Telkom from certain perspective?

    I am deaf so it's not so easy for me but I am sure that from a specific perspective, it would be possible to get ICASA or ASA ruling about the hidden / secret throttling. What I want and our whole country really need is a ruling from The Advertising Standards Authority about Uncapped, Unlimited...

    Illegal invading of your privacy?

    Do the following means that Vodacom are going to invade our privacy in an illegal way or are they going to ASK PERMISSION from each and every customer before they turn this on? As per Vodacom billing page.

    A very important feature for high end security is IP address validation to make sure someone don't hack a live logged in session. 1) User logged in 2) Connection IP address logged and if that IP address changed, the security system will log the user out and display a message "IP address...

    Honest opinions about this deal please

    It may look as if I want to promote this but 1) I am only website developer, 2) I am deaf so don't really engage socially with other people and 3) despite working online for 14 years my broadband and "deals" knowledge is not on the same level. (For instance never had Fibre, or money for high...

    Data expiration, congestion and overloading

    Correct me if I am wrong but my view is that the whole data expiration issue is a misleading lie at the side of the operators. “The reason for data expiration is that we purchase capacity on data ‘pipes’ from other providers and this approach helps us to understand how much capacity we need. If...

    Telkom Tower in your backyard

    I stayed in De Deur about 8 km from Meyerton for a while but despite a Telkom signal that is much stronger than MTN I get such crappy service that it was almost impossible to work online (I worked 10+ years online for myself) so I had to roam on MTN with my Telkom mobile account. Moved start...

    Mobile connection speed - Interesting observation

    It's perhaps not so big deal but how many people know how big influence the SIM CARD have on mobile connection speed? 1) Used a 32K Vodacom sim card on both 3.6 and 7.2 USB modems. Very slow and drop a lot. 2) Used a 64K Vodacom sim card on both 3.6 and 7.2 USB modems. Got around 1.3 mbps...
