    Telkom eSIM support launching in August

    Would be great if Vodacom could also join the party with esim support for Smart Phones. Some days they really are useless to say the least.

    Concerns over powership electricity prices

    Concerns over powership electricity prices

    MTN 5G is here - Prices and coverage

    WACS cable break - Slow SA Internet speeds

    What i cannot understand is why is it that due to this one cable going down all of a sudden everything slows down. It is not like we do not have more cables around to reroute? Don't the ISP's have redundancy built in? Does no one use Seacom anymore?

    Telkom says it is not losing the fibre war

    With the other providers offering up to 1000mbps links no wonder people are leaving Telkom. Also the price difference of a 100mbps link on Openserve / Telkom vs Octotel is up to 30%. If i had the option i would go with anyone other than openserve.
