If only Icasa would get off their behind and finals the DTT migration to free up valuable spectrum, until then we can only but look on in amazement then move on with our lives.

^ or scrap DTT migration altogether DVB-S2 and triple play ...

End Sentech as a cash cow.

Howzit Jannie. When we getting LTE Avanced? South Korea been having it man! :D

Seriously though ... I was just wondering...will LTE Advanced be deployed on the same spectrum as LTE .... kind of like how HSPA+ was deployed on existing bands?

I wonder how much can you lose to the OOB shark in 1 hour with this speed?

Looking forward to the offerings. This might be a viable alternative for ADSL if they can give caps in the region of 50 GB without breaking the bank.

Could Telkom not rather focus on the customers they have first? Fix your God damn DSL congestion problem first.....

Maybe they dont want people to have DSL who knows??

Proper LTE-Advanced is not here yet but we are seeing intermediate releases coming out and are kicking the tyres. How does 300Mb/s sound? :)

As great as these announcements are - they leave me disappointed.

200mbps is great for the press releases, but what the people on the ground want is stable throughout the country 2mbps and lots of data. Keep the 200...i'll settle for a stable 2.

Maybe mybb should introduce a new measure...average (local) speed measure at 25ish randomly selected location throughout the country. Even better - make the top say 100 forumites by post count choose the latitude/longitude (each separate) at random. That way nobody can call BS on it. Well someone could try but 25 seasoned forumites vs accuser....lol

Agreed, but, why bother? Seems like the plan isn't ADSL, but rather LTE.

Here is what Telkom Mobile quoted me for LTE:
  • 10 GB - R499
  • 20 GB - R699
  • 50 GB - R1299
Prices include a WiFi Router and 36 months contract.

I think I will stick with 3G for the time being.
