    What happens behind the scenes when you upgrade your speed?

    Hi, does anybody know the process? Who does the actual upgrade? ISP or Infrastructure? From accepting the T&C's on Thursday to last night at 11pm when the actual speed upgrade happened. Is this the usual timeframe?

    MTN contract limit question

    My contract is due for an upgrade. The problem is my current limit is R246p/m and the phone I want is R300p/m. How likely are they to increase my limit in order for me to upgrade to a new handset? And is upgrading a same day deal? Will I need to bring extra documents?

    I'm sure many of you get the 'how can I speed up my PC question' from friends/family. The easy answer, is to add an SSD. So, for an intermediate user, is 120GB enough? I'd say so, especially if the old drive is relocated to the DVD bay or an external enclosure. SATA is fine for most of...
