^5 for Mweb!

Those that can should make a change to support them- it's the least you can do as a thank you.

Hershaw previously explained that MWEB will not ‘black hole’ any local ISP’s traffic. “We will simply be rerouting traffic away from congested and very expensive local transit links to our international bandwidth, which is significantly cheaper and not congested,” said Hershaw.
What an utterly disgusting state of affairs.
I wonder how much fiber is laying around unlit in this country.

It is accessible from our other connectivity.

Well done MWEB, so if I want to go onto MyBB i have to use my Vodacom Connection. So much for freeing the web, now I can only browse sites MWEB wants me to. So much for an open internet, I understand this takes time, but really on a Thursday afternoon. I cannot VPN to my clients so effectively have to work on another network.

if you really need to browse a site you cant get to look up an intl anonymous proxy

This is a cause worth fighting for, people always talk here about doing something and this is the most ive seen happen

Our part of the deal is to unfortunately deal with high latencies and other problems :)

GO MWEB!

Most of the people posting here are ones who don't use MWEB accounts since others (like me) don't have local access. Now I have to route everything through damn Tor. Big pain in the ass.

Similar problem here; temporarily switched to a different provider and notified some hosting customers of potential access problems for some customers. I'm all behind MWEB but it's not a good first firing volley in their battle.

I lost connectivity to my webshop and mail on my hosted server at Hetzner and couldn't surf mybroadband.co.za either. So much for the international routing.

Sadly I'll have to say goodbye to my mweb uncapped account and will be finding another option. (I'm using my webafrica prepaid account right now, to make things work).

I would think that some of the ISP's are scrambling to get their routing working. There will be some speed bumps (traffic calming devices) in the road before the dust settles. once they get over this things can only get better for us in SA...
