FFS, you can stop now. The first 100 times it was funny, the next 500 times it became a bit boring, now it is just tiresome.

All these offers are great. Good to see iBurst making some important moves too... BUT: ZA infrastructure is clearly not ready for this storm. Local Latency between IS/SAIX/MWEB (IPConnect) is taking such a hit. it's become hell for gamers and I'm sure we're not alone. Hopefuly infrastructure can be upgraded in favour of these major ISP's turning their backs on the uncapped idea... More relevantly, is iBurst's wireless infrastructure going to handle the downloaders between those hours on their network? Wireless has the problem of noise when too many users flood the same spectrum.
Well let's see how it goes :)

This is great!

Do you have to subscribe to it especially?
Is it open to users who have iBurst through resellers? (eg MWEB)?

There's a little button you can press. It's called "Block User". I suggest you use it to keep your sanity.

This is great news, as a big chunk of my browsing happens between 5 and 6am as I catch up. Throw in the easter steam specials and this is going to be good times.

Rest of the ibursters, please don't spoil this and do insane amount of torrent mkay?

the operative word is "trial" and they are not charging for it, unlike some ISP that call their packages "uncapped beta testing". Learn-baby-learn from the beeeg-boys.

One of the reasons we are rough on P2P!

No, subscribers do not need to do anything to obtain the benefit. In July it will become a value added service which then needs to be requested. It will be competitively priced, potentially even rated at the same price as the trial.

It is open to all users including those who have iBurst through MWEB. The only exclusion is Prepaid.

I'm confused, does this mean we have to pay during the trial?
