You can get it if you are willing to pay.Still too slow. They need to ramp up investments in fibre, and at least start with rolling out last mile fibre-based infrastructure to consumers.
+1 and I was with them for 3 years. What was I thinking.Neotel's 100 000 customers out of 50 million people is nothing to be proud of. They will be not grow their subscriber base as long as they persist in inferior wireless products, neglecting the domestic sector, poor service and billing and their aggressive approach towards non payers. Even if they have a million gig line, I am not interested. I have been with them for 3 months and never again. That was enough suffering.
+1. Perhaps they're planning a mass-provisioning of "1-WCDMA-device-per-person" for 34'952'533 South Africans. If each simultaneously downloads at the typical maximum Neotel WCDMA speed of 3KB/s, then they might saturate their 800Gbps...Wow they have 800Gbps that nobody can use.
and R11 250 or so for 15Mbps, up and down. You can't really compare that to an ADSL line at all for business - what good is 10Mbps down when you are getting under 1Mbps up for VPN or uploading stuff (say CCTV) to offsite storage/monitoring? The contention etc is also vastly different. Don't get me wrong, I would love the 15Mbps line to be R500pm, but if you compare this offering to the Telkom fibre option it is actually quite cheap.I think pricing is the biggest hurdle.
Neotel 10Mbps, uncapped, FTTX (NeoBroadband Fibre) = R8 200 per month.
True, but you can also blame the whole ECNS debacle and Telkom not giving them access for LLU for this which would be more appropriate. They expected to be the only other player and get access to Telkom infrastructure.One word neotot knows nothing about:
You are quoting design capacity, not current capacity. WACS has 500Gbps lit, Seacom only has something like 100Gbps lit to start with, not sure if they have lit more than another 100Gbps since then. I am sure they can also change equipment and light more fibre to get higher rates if it was actually needed.Wait a minute.... their network is 800Gbps?!?!!?
Is that all?...
We have more bloody international bandwidth landing in this country.
WACS : 5.12Tbps
EASSY : 4.72Tbps
SAT3 : 340Gbps
SAFE : 440Gbps
Whats actually very disturbing is a system that was built and installed over 10 years ago has half the capacity of Neototties core network :wtf:
I'm sorry, but that just underlines for me how behind the curve Neotottie actually are.
