For someone looking to cut the cord this could be seen as a starter pack.

Maybe, but Showmax is only R99/month and MWeb wants a 12 month sign up, so it's actually just a discount in return for a 12m commitment. Not for me!

It's a start, but what I want to see is a ISP offering Showmax as part of their package free for always, and if I have to sign a contract with them, then so be it. I've been with MWeb for almost 10 years so the chances of me moving anytime soon is very very slim, if this was free Showmax for the duration of the 12 month contract I would have signed a contract no questions.

MWEB uncapped throttling threshold

Does ShowMax data count towards your usage?
What happens when you reach your MWEB uncapped throttling threshold?
Does ShowMax even work without buffering when throttled to 512kbps?

I'm on MWeb Uncapped 10Mb.
Does ShowMax data count towards your usage? I have no idea, but I don't see why it wouldn't.
What happens when you reach your MWEB uncapped throttling threshold? What is this? I have never been throttled when using Netflix or ShowMax (And I use both quite heavily)
Does ShowMax even work without buffering when throttled to 512kbps? Again, I'm not sure why you would get throttled (Unless you make use of bittorrent)
