I think that this is a comment on the state of telecoms in South Africa. There is only really one company with the reach to connect you country-wide rather than just the major metropolitan area. I reckon it is going to takes years if not decades for the other guys to catch up...

This is way Telkom will keep prices high. There still to much customers depending on them with no other choice. :(

I think ABSA can be assured of service. Their legal department is on par with that of Telkom's.

I've said it before, I'll say it again!!!!!!

After crime telkom is the next worst thing in our country. They have capped (limited) the greatest resource know to man, the internet. Whoever decided this at telkom should be tried for treason.

Bleugh... I'm glad I'm not with ABSA. I wouldn't trust Telkom with a toenail clipping.

The deal do make sense - as telkom have a proven infrastructure which it can leverage, and Neotel still have to prove its viability.

Banks need a dependable infrastructure they can trust, and the closest to the mark still is telkom. Maybe in a few months/years time this will change, but we'll have to wait and see.

As for the record, no I won't trust telkom.

I am sure their [telkom's] network is on the verge of a collapse... old equipment, no maintenance, so this will be fun to watch... So I do think Absa made a mistake choosing Telkom - they should have gone over to Neotel.

We shall see, I suppose... we shall see...

Do I trust ANY South African companies? No, not any that I can think of? They are all pathetic. Service does not exist in South Africa.
