    South Africa's hosting providers compared

    I use Azure for IaaS and other services. For good old baremetal, SoYouStart (SYS) which is a mid range OVH product. Or Kimsufi which is an entry level product - dedicated servers from $4 . SYS $50 for 8core xeon, 32GB ram and 3x120GB SSD + DDoS and static ips. ZA hosting is a ripoff.

    DSTV Now - Buffering

    It is only sometimes and then it is for 4-8hour segments. Changing ISPs shouldn't be a solution. I'm with MacroLAN-Seacom for fibre

    Watch out for Procall debit order fraud

    You guys missing the point. Friend of mine had this same issue on Standard Bank and they told him they can't help. The only solution they gave him was to close his account, open a new one and change Everything over. (time consuming). Standard bank even charged him to reactivate overdraft on his...

    Web Squad ISP

    These speedtests means nothing: why? 1) all ISPs shape their traffic to give ookla best QoS 2) all tests should be at the same time, preferably at night when US is actually awake and everyone from GMT to GMT+5 is at home. Posting speedtests from 7am means nothing. Websquad is one of the only...

    GoDaddy launching in South Africa

    Why would anyone in their right mind support Go Daddy? They are PRO SOPA. Remember the big leave of GoDaddy in 2011 because of their stance against net neutrality & for 'stop online piracy act'?

    Windows 10 can now run on a Raspberry Pi

    Goodluck running win32 programs, since you all say it is "the same". Windows 8 RT was never Windows 8. Same counts for Windows 10 RT aka ARM

    Vumacam - Vumatel's CCTV system to keep South Africa safe

    There should be less / no crime to start with. You can't justify putting up more cameras to keep na eye on crime. We should never have to live behind 2.5m walls and fences, nor CCTV to start of with. It became a norm.
