Someone in SA should setup their own Proxy server to let people get on sites like facebook. If I had to use a web hosting server plan in SA, would they shut me down for running a proxy server on my site??

Yes www.facebook.com is not currently on akamai anymore (their photos & other CDN content are though) You can force it to use 69.63.191.11 which is based in the UK rather than the USA, so it will be a bit quicker

May I ask this stupid question: why can't ISP do this for their clients on their side--so if client enters these google services on his browser (machine), then ISP could auto-route the traffic locally without user intervention? Is this even possible? Cheaper for ISP, can send some of that savings the clients way!

Actually they do, do it, via use of DNS mostly.

The problem is when users start using other DNS servers not on the ISP's networ ect. Other times something happen, and to prevent users from having problems, the users get redirected to different clusters of servers, so that time can be spent to fix the local cluster, after which users will be redirected to it. Now many times these clusters work, but hey, preventative measures are better than hoping users won't experience problems when work is done on clusters of servers.

Hey, I am on TelkomInternet, I want to pull youtube off local as some videos are not streaming full speed causing buffering. Do I have to only use SAIX or can I add Webafrica and IS as I do not care where it pulls the content from I just want it to stream at full speed?
