I thought this was about my pitiful 384k connection being bumped to at least 512k :-(

What's the point on the upgrade, really, this will only benefit customers with uncap dsl, what about end-users, we want more bandwidht. or should i strike

I just really want price drops more than anything else. I can't afford ADSL at the moment and with the way the economy is going there are going to be many more people like me...

If they're going to get IPTV off the ground, they are going to need ADSL2+. If they're complaining about their current load, then I think we may see Telkom only offering a higher speed connection for IPTV customers and probably there, shape the traffic so that any normal internet browsing etc are limited to a lower speed to decrease load.

Nasty thought but had to say it.

Im one of those people who are in your shoes. This is too painful i cant even feel my athelets foot. I just wish i had money or may be win the lottery so that i could install ADSL and buy the pretty chick who will fill in my forms in Telkom offices.

If this means Telkom will be bumping 384k people to 512k+, 512k to 4Mb, 4Mb to 8Mb+ and staying at the same price for 2008/09, I'd be happy.

Telkom says they are busy deploying ADSL 2+ equipment but the only reason they are doing this is because you can't find any ADSL 1 equipment anywhere else in the world.

ROFL :D:D:D

"when pushing the technology to its maximum" ???

Since when is 8mbps the maximum for ADSL2+ ?

Bunch of jokers.
I think they were trying to say that they were trialing 8mbps to see how the network would perform under heavier load, to see if adsl2+ would be practical.

If 8mbps is strainging their network, of course adsl2+ won't be practical.

I think they are trying to say anything to get confidence back in the company. From that lackluster statement I read that they have not got the ability, will power, or motivation to give the buying public a better service. In fact why should they? There is no real threat to their ADSL service from copetition, so why shouldl they strive to get the edge in the market place.

They are blowing hot air to try and bolster their share price IMO, don't forget the impending deal with whoever it is they are "smokeling" with.
