It was a bad idea not to make it possible for Telkom to have competition. And then an even worse one to allow Voda and MTN to entrench and write their own cheques.

Ditto satellite TV, Eskom, Iscor

But of course he will.
For every article he has published I am sure his bonus for the year goes up

We laugh, but it's sad.

Soon it's going to be 2020, the world will average plus 100meg connections, yet we will only be on 10meg if we are lucky.

I find it extraordinary that unused bandwidth which you purchase gets confiscated at the end of the month, and this is considered a fair practice.

I'm not sure that this happens anywhere else in the World, and it's probably not taken into account in these figures.
