The world of broadband is broken up into 3 main categories:
I guess because you can use it as a fixed service at home or at the office. If you are in a good area, setup the LTE modem, and use it as a fixed service. If you are in a fringe area, then instal a directional yagi antenna pointing to the tower, together with the LTE modem, and you have great fixed service....with the advantage of taking it away on holiday with you
Remember that the survey tests peoples perception and experience of their own service providers. If 1000 of the 3635 people were happy to sign a long term contract and they perceive it to be good value and get good service, then it would score high. This is similar to asking 10 families finishing dinner at each of Spur, Panarottis and Nando's how they experienced their food and service. The one with the most positive votes win, although their menus varies greatly.A big thing missing from this survey is which providers lock you into a 12 or 24 month contract in order to get their services. Anything other than prepaid or month-to-month is a deal breaker for a lot of people.
I think there are 2 concepts in question here, its all semantics essentially:Sorry, no mobile service is fixed. Contradiction in terms there.
See, the guy who knows the most acronyms win!I think there are 2 concepts in question here, its all semantics essentially:
Fixed vs Mobile
Wired vs Wireless
We make the assumption that Fixed is Wired, which is not the case in terms of TM LTE (CPE with external Antenna)
It should be noted that Telkom’s LTE service is sold as a fixed wireless broadband solution, which is why it is grouped with other fixed products like ADSL, WiMax, and iBurst Wireless.
R1800 for 120Gb?Telkom LTE feels like first world internet. I am not one for contracts and the like but I am super happy with my 50Gb + Huweruweyr 593 for R1299pm. I was quite happy with 15-18Mbps, but the recent upgrades now pushed it up to ~38Mbps.
You can get the modem separately and spend R1800 for 120Gb.
