    Recommend an alternative to Telkom ISP for my ADSL connection

    For several years now I have used Telkom ISP for my data needs. My local exchange (Swellendam, WC) only offers a "up to 4 Mbps" ADSL connection, which is "soft-capped" at 20GB. Telkom responded to one question I had (i.e. when will they upgrade our local exchange to allow >4Mpbs connection)...
