    Best fibre ISP in South Africa - May 2021

    Herotel only at 68%, I must just be lucky that I stay in a smallish town with their offices nearby. I have no issues with their 200mb/200mb. Speeds are so consistent.

    Herotel Outage

    I've tried this number 023 004 0040 but seems there no direct line to tech support. So you just have to leave a message.

    Herotel Outage

    So I'm not sure If this is my side, doubt it. My Fibre went off about 1 hour ago. Unfortunately I'm not to sure who's infrastructure Herotel uses. My router lights are on but the small box isn't showing any lights at all. Even the power light does light up. Does that mean the little box is...

    DStv standalone streaming launched in South Africa

    If they would only increase the bitrate or something just to look a bit better, looks horrible sometimes on 1080P on a 4K TV.

    Do any of you stream DSTV now and watch sport, I have noticed a definite quality drop, on highest/1080p. It looks like the bitrate has been tuned down quite a bit? Also it says it will roughly use 1.7GB/hour, maybe I'm wrong but I am sure it used to be more.

    Is Herotel's Fibre any good?

    Just shout if you want me to do any tests. Yeah I also thought it was an amazing price. Was on promotion when they were launching fibre in the area.

    Is Herotel's Fibre any good?

    Hey man, I was also on the fence with them cause they were part of Breedenet and we had their wireless service (breedenet, not Herotel) at work and it was not good at all. I did however make the jump to their 100mb/100mb for R999 FTTH here in Worcester and it has been so dam amazing. Ping of 3...

    Refusing to send your child to school - What you need to know

    1 thing I have noticed in this whole lock down period is the government don't think of how 1 thing effects another. Some parents might have issues of them having to go back to work but not being able to let their children go to daycare/school. What do they do in these circumstances? I'm in...

    Nxesi encourages businesses who aren't sure if they are allowed to open or not to read the government gazette which has "clear guidelines" on which businesses can open. YET, in the gazzette it says: Car Sales under specific directions. --- Still not sure when they will elaborate on this.
