    Why I switched from Telkom to Vodacom

    Well it's R140 for 2GB + 2GB all net data or R100 for 1GB+1GB all net data. The other is night data. That said unless you get decent all net data deals on Mo Nice then it's better to buy Free Me Data as the prices of the all net data bundles start to get expensive with Freeme looking better at...

    All adsl soon to be discontinued?

    Nah it's common sense... They have just short of 1 million active ADSL/VDSL lines. Just killing it would mean a substantial financial loss. I'm no business man but if I had a business with close to 1 million people on a legacy product I will not kill it. It would mean financial ruin for my...

    Afrihost - Pure Fibre Feedback Thread

    Yes I do. I use kodi with the google drive addon on my Telkom LIT box. Allows me to stream directly from my Google drive.

    Afrihost Pure Fibre. I see you in Centurion so you are probably on Openserve or maybe Metrofibre? Afrihost has been pretty good. I was actually planning on going to Macrolan/Seacom. Very competitive pricing on Openserve.

    Afrihost - Pure Fibre Feedback Thread

    Strange. Well I don't do much streaming from international destinations. I most stream from google drive or emby shared server through cloudflare so won't really know.

    Google drive mounted in Windows/Linux

    Nice. I'm just short of 15tb on my drive. I let my seedbox do all the heavy lifting. The 750GB limit gets hit rather quickly actually.

    Google drive mounted in Windows/Linux

    @sand_man Have a look at http://z-o-o-m.eu I even donated quite a while back. Way better uploader. Can rate limit. Can multi thread upload and schedule uploads. Freeware. Works really well with gdrive. Just dump all the uploads in a /upload folder for example and then you can sort them at a...

    Afrihost - Pure Fibre Feedback Thread

    Got a RD account. Speeds seem inconstant but not slow. Nothing less than 10MB/s on a single thread download.

    I don't see 200ms+ on that IP. I get about 177ms

    Afrihost - Pure Fibre Feedback Thread

    Give me a link to test my side. Your line seems like an issue or Vumatel handover issue on Afrihost side not sure but not latency related. Cybersmart has the worst latency to EU with 190ms to London but very stable and fast.

    Yeah me too hey. I don't like clawbacks at all and Supersonic did me bad with a R2800 cancellation I had to fight them at ISPA tooth and nail because they can't provide me with the service I paid for and when I cancelled boom enjoy your R2800 cancellation fee. Personally I won't go for anything...

    I'm sure a bunch of your clients thought the same when they joined you when you launched. :p

    Afrihost - Pure Fibre Feedback Thread

    Latency is about 7ms between Amsterdam and London when I test it from my seedbox hosted in Amsterdam to Coreix.net in London. So if Afrihost gives ~ 168ms to London then surely Amsterdam should be around 178ms or so. Liquid Telecom still has an issue with routing or maybe they are not at the...

    How on earth are we going to do 5G?

    Yeah the coverage of 5G will be so poor. I think we have reached a decent balance between coverage and speed with 3G (DC-HSDPA) and LTE/4G (2 or more carrier aggregation) 5G with the higher frequency bands will have very poor coverage only usable in high density areas with open areas like malls...

    All adsl soon to be discontinued?

    In certain areas only. People on new ISAM units won't be switched off and anyone thinking they will just switch it off after upgrading these units just a few weeks ago is naive...

    All adsl soon to be discontinued?

    Openserve is probably only moving people where copper has been stolen and/or has Fixed LTE and Fibre coverage. They won't switch just switch adsl off one morning. ISPs are misleading the public with their reckless statements that should be challenged because I HATE it when companies misleads the...

    Afrihost Pure Fibre 8Mbps download and 5Mbps upload

    Well their pure fibre deals are completely unshaped so you can't make a mistake choosing it. For R61 more per month (R460) you get 10/5 line first 2 months free and free install from mindthespeed.co.za More speed won't hurt. Not sure what quality you watch but 8Mbps can be a bit slow when...

    Why I switched from Telkom to Vodacom

    Fair enough but what I noticed with Telkom is I can travel from Pretoria East to Roodepoort on the N1 without losing 4G+ signal once with Telkom. I work and live in Centurion and I find Telkom coverage to be a bit better than MTN actually. Also MTN is the best betwork wonder why you chose...

    Why I switched from Telkom to Vodacom

    This should be marked as an opinion piece. The article makes it sound like suddenly the high data bundles from Vodacom is the ideal solution. Well it's not because the data sims have very high per minute call rates and is strictly contracts. Poor coverage and slow speed and poor coverage is...
