Let uncapped die. Cheaper capped accounts. Full speed FTW
Are you keeping breakage in mind?Those numbers don't add up.Afrihost is selling their capped products at R4 per GB which means that they are making a loss of R2 per GB on all their capped customers! Sorry just don't believe it.
well the question always is whether you are a fat kid allowing the skinny kids to still get food. The restaurant makes their money by people being their and paying entry they spend money putting out a platter. If you are "hogging" about and bullying the other customers then you are a problem but if you are some jovial fatty eating a ton of food but allowing those who've eaten less than you all you are doing is adding to the atmosphere and making other people come to the restaurant.I am hurting my ISP, but there are 5 other guys that are not, that subsidize me, and therefore the ISP still makes a profit.
Of course not everyone is going to consume the same amount of data.
It's like the fat guy at the buffet eating 3 plates. Sure he might be costing the restaurant money for his plate, but for every fat guy there are 5 other people that don't eat as much.
In the end everyone still gets to eat how much they want to and the restaurant makes a profit.
If buffets/uncapped aren't making their target, then why are they still offering it?
It's because they make money.
Some of us consume too much, but most of us don't. It balances out - I don't see a problem.

There is also the very simple fact that by selling cheap people buy more than they use - you break a culture of buying as little as possible which is driven in part by low caps and high prices. I suspect that with their 5 gig mobile data offer at least 10% of us had more than a gig outstanding from August/September.Believe it. No everyone uses all their gigs. It's called breakages. Sometimes that's all the profit there is.
