Why pay R209 for 30gb when you can get uncapped for < R199?

Because you can use that 30GB on a 10Mb line if you want. The R199 uncapped too, but only at 1Mbps.

Btw, MrBeep, you (or whoever made wrote the email), should check up on the spelling of [-]cancell[/-] cancel ;)

If there was data rollover I'd have taken this.

Staff Writer fails to mention that Ti offers more data on both packages despite the 50GB working out slightly more expensive in comparison to OW.

BUT if one was to buy as an example 4x 10GB +20GB (R149.00) local data from Ti then the price for 120GB (40GB INT / 80GB local) would be @ R4.97/GB) (R596/120GB)

#justsaying

hmmm, no loss once OW depletes its 1TB data :p

/i want to say to MrBeep thanks for offering us this promotion.

It seems pointless advertising ADSL products at dirt cheap prices when you get reamed by Telkom line charges.
What is the good of paying rockbottom prices per GB when Telkom connection and line charges are exhorbitant.

I use less than 10 GB per month, so I go with 8ta. Anyone that uses less than 10GB per month are daft if they go the ADSL route.

Better approach than uncapped imo. I'd rather have a *large* fixed cap with no AUP & shaping BS, than an uncapped a/c with lots of hidden catches and a policy that keeps changing behind the scenes.

But even with a shaped uncapped account you're going to be able to do a lot more than 30gb.

I agree. I would rather go uncapped with all its limitations than capped. Downloading for me is a marathon, not a sprint :)

I would go 8ta, I just dont like all the line speed issues people seem to pick up after a couple of months and then you tied into a contract.

I'm happy with Openweb. I have an Uncapped Lite account with them (Uncapped & Unshaped) and I can't complain.
Just took an additional 50Gb capped account as well. The capped account works nice because it allows the larger line speed as well as 4 concurrent connections whereas Uncapped allows only one connection.

In the mean time the pirates in the mobile world are charging South Africans R5 for 5MB. Can you freaking believe it?

I am having a lot of problems with Afrihost, specifically dealing with their support people. It seems all they're interested in is coffee and blowing their own trumpet. Now with this MTN nonsense, I am on the lookout for the next best thing because that will surely be the end of them.

and they on IS backbone so you get throttled halfway during the month
