R8,799 for a 100Mbps service,” said Montjoie.

Just wondering if those guys are not ashamed to come with price like this and call it offer as well?

When all the operators were talking up FTTH futures they kept saying it'd be comparable with ADSL prices, and that Telkom's such a ripoff... that was all BS. R8799 for 100mbit... uncapped 40mbit ADSL is R1400. That's R3500 for the bandwidth portion if you multiply out to 100mbit. And note that ADSL and FTTH use the exact same bandwidth on the backbone side of things. Sorry, man - if Telkom can maintain a piece of copper to your house for R700 a month, how do you justify R5300/month for a piece of fiber along the same path, even if you do have to dig a trench for it.

Suddenly Telkom's looking like the good guy.

Are they that disengaged with public opinion or just trying to go out of business?

1:6 contention, best effort service & it's subject to a FUP. They will take measures against your line to enforce the FUP

Looks good for a business offering, probably cheaper than Neotel.
