    Cool Ideas Fibre ISP – Feedback Thread 4

    I know nothing about this vpn stuff so was testing the one that comes with opera browser. Surely the speed service should be the same or at least similar no matter the route? Is the vpn going outside normal fibre routes and going satellite?

    I have had accounts at most the banks except capitec. and the newer online banks. This month closed my absa savings accounts and credit card as they have been giving the worst service over this past while, I have ever experienced in all my years. Used to be great in 70's when it was Volkskas...

    SARS cracks down on Bitcoin traders in South Africa

    Thank you for this... Once the “facts and circumstances” have been determined then the ring fence falls away. Its as usual disingenuous of sars to assume that its all "suspect'. They trying to make criminals out of one for investing and trying to survive, using a system they dont want you...

    Now that profits and investment gains are spoken of, Greedy SARS sees an opportunity to rob a portion of your investment gains.

    Have done all that with no success. FNB have the rudest most unhelpful staff in the banking world. Having accounts with the other banks as well, I can compare and thought I had reach a low point with them....but fnb takes the idea of service and communication to new levels below that which I had...

    Cool Ideas Fibre ISP – Feedback Thread 3

    FNB at Durban North have just refused a Cool Ideas Statement (for fibre and voip) as physical address proof for FICA. They will accept a telkom account as a utility bill but rejected CI as a utility supplier outright. I know this situation is possible given the skills level at this bank, but how...

    Bad communicators. Keen on blaming their customers rather than looking at themselves. Threatening attitudes. Speed appears ok - but much buffering on 100mps line. Voip is dodgy Today they have yet to take off voip debit order for feb, which could be on the fiber invoice which goes off the bank...

    Update from todays attempts to find out what is happening with regards to Econet, Kwese and Netflix. Netflix helpdesk in the Exited States kept insisting that I call Kwese and ask them to fix the problem. They appear not to know about this development in SA and could not understand that Kwese...
