    The best and cheapest ISP packages via Vumatel

    Currently, I am in a position where I can't just change ISPs from one provider to another, but I feel like I just have to bite the bullet and change. That being said, I am certain everyone knows the stubbornness of Vumatel refusing to follow Openserve and Frogfoot's example by allowing other...

    A Ghost terminated my Frogfoot line

    Seems like a ghost terminated my one @Frogfoot Fibre line. Being stonewalled from all sides. @Frogfoot Fibre does FF have a PAIA Manual, in terms of Section 51 of the Promotion of Access to Information Act, 2000 (Act No. 2 of 2000)?

    Frogfoot in Glencairn

    We recently moved to Glencairn and I ordered a Frogfoot Fibre line through Afrihost. The Frogfoot installer did the installation from the box on the street into the house on the 12th of June.

    Fibre with frogfoot and mweb

    Has anyone had any experience with the above? I intend putting pen to paper on a 12 month contract and want to make sure before I do. Also, I've currently got a 8mb copper line would the attached pic be a "decent" upgrade? And I don't see a fair use policy in the TCs of this package which means...

    Comparing Fibre ISP Pricing (on Frogfoot)

    I have noticed that the packages listed on the frogfoot packages portal ain't exactly what I would call accurate. Some of the pricing is wrong, some of the terms are wrong, some of the packages don't even exist on the ISP's website etc etc. Looking then at the slew of fibre isp comparing sites...

    Cool Ideas - Tl,dr; Terrible

    Here I am, 6 hours before my line is supposed to be cancelled, and already without internet. Should have expected it based on the past track record.
