    I purchase it in the app. Select the data bundle term as 180 days and it shows in the drop down. I have also purchased it in store before.

    eHomeAffairs - getting it to work for you

    What was the number for the branch? Was this for passport or ID? I'm to get a booking for a passport but get the message that there is no slots available for a few weeks now. Received a number for the branch but it was just a general home affairs number that was out of service. It also took...

    Knife-wielding prisoner killed in court after jumping witness box

    I've read the article but it doesn't say he was shot, but I assume that's how he died. If he had a bullet hole, is it still necessary to say that a firearm was allegedly fired?

    Have you been vaccinated against Covid-19?

    I had my second Pfizer dose today. After the first dose, I had a mildly sore arm. I can feel the same now after the second dose. It got worse on day two and went away by day three the last time. Will monitor the effects now.

    Immense price cuts on Vumatel

    Like someone said above, they don't wait for customers to request price increases. There was also no clear communication around it. I find it quite shady to go this route. So have you requested it?

    Immense price cuts on Vumatel

    Update on my situation. Gave notice to Vox and applied at Afrihost on 1 July. Received the router from Afrihost shortly after application. Waited out my waiting period, was never called by vox but checked cancellation status on their portal. All seemed in order so never called them either. Was...

    Pfizer’s Cape Town Deal to Produce 100 Million Vaccine Doses for Africa

    mRNA vaccines are quite young, the timelines are quite aggressive even if it is only for formulation and filling. So for an mRNA deal to come to Africa this soon is somewhat of an achievement. The vaccine manufacturing requirements are complex due to the temperature profile of the vaccine. The...

    Immense price cuts on Vumatel

    Crazy strategy since it is cheaper to retain a customer than work to sign up new ones to replace them. I guess they worked out that those who won't bother asking for the discount is worth the extra revenue.

    Immense price cuts on Vumatel

    It's easy to request the price drop, but I opted to cancel instead. Its not the kind of treatment I would like as a customer and it shows their colours. I submitted my cancellation and my Afrihost application is pending that cancellation. I'll probably have some pain in moving my line. I have...

    Football Banter Thread (2nd Half)

    I still think it depends on position and system. We'll be able to find examples for both sides. Question is, why prejudice a player while they still have their pace, because they'll be useless once they lose it?

    Football Banter Thread (2nd Half)

    I'm not a Sterling fan and get what you say about pace, however, he has enough technical skill that when combined with his pace, it makes him an elite player. Also, where an argument is about a player being played now, you can't also talk about when his pace is gone. Perhaps a valid point in a...

    Vumatel Price change

    Based on my vox account it showed my next invoice as the same price I'm paying. The July payment deducted was the old price. I haven't received any mails from them. So I voted with my wallet. Afrihost seems to have handled this well. When I needed a new fibre line at another premises, Vox...

    Vumatel Price change

    I agree with this. Afrihost might just have another customer. I think they were very proactive with the open serve price update and now with Vuma as well. If my isp only updates pricing in August I'll seriously consider moving. Its only R150 difference as the prices would line up in future, but...

    The Car Depreciation Awards: Post Yours

    Looks like we have similar taste, was considering the golf R as well, but always wanted the rs3 for that unique 5-pot sound. Planning to keep it for at least another 4 years. So will be interesting to see the value then.

    The Car Depreciation Awards: Post Yours

    Interesting thread. I've thought back to some of my cars, didn't have too bad depreciation. The latter 2 has higher monthly number because they cost more, percentage of purchase price seems to be lower than 1% per month still. The first 3 cars being purchased during August, pure coincidence on...

    The Audi Thread

    My back brakes were R12k, fronts will definitely need to be replaced this this period. A battery in the next 4 years not of the cards. Annual service is about R2k. During my original plan I needed a bottom end replacement for R110k. A caveat is that I never added mileage so I'm assuming to...

    The Audi Thread

    The extension you are referring to was not the freeway plan. The freeway plan is with audi direct and does not limit cover. The cost is much higher but you can then drop your car with audi and whatever is needed will be covered. I paid R40k for 4 years and annual maintenance plus things like...

    The Audi Thread

    This is covered by the maintenance plan. The freeway plan covers service items, wear and tear items as well as mechanical failure. It is quite comprehensive. You'll probably only need fuel and tyres.
