The prices are ridiculous. ICASA need to regulate and stop being bullied by the service providers. Right now the only Broadband is around a politicians waist.

Why not? I've got wifi at work, home, I use anything between 200 - 500 Mb a month. So I only buy what I'll need.
Could/ should it be cheaper? Sure. But not about to spend more so my per Mb cost is less.

Mobile networks in South Africa offer a range of mobile data packages - some are good, and others are terrible.

A measure of the value you get from a mobile data bundle is simple to calculate, all other elements - such as network coverage and download speeds - constant.

I'm trying to limit my mobile costs with dual sim phones: Wifi > Rain > Vodacom.

No no no, we can't regulate prices. Companies need to make ALL the money! Regulating prices to make them fairer is socialism!

I use Telkom LTE prepaid - R250 for 10GB anytime and 10GB night.

I think it's good value for money, considering it's prepaid.
