Traffic still a bit low, we pushed about 350gb last month on one of our servers at Mweb and to think we were paying R50/gb at IS this time last year. Interesting as a failover server to our primary at Mweb. Mweb also provide us with 100gb of Attix 5 backups and a dedicated Cisco firewall for a nominal fee, much better than the FTP backups Afrihost provide.
What's the Mweb hosting like? Their uncapped ADSL gets better and better every month, you can almost hear them shaping less and less as time goes on and they reach critical mass... are their server offerings as good?
We have been very happy with then in the 7 months we have been using. Setup took a while but we did order the main server just before Christmas and we also wanted in the CPT data centre incase of problems. The only issue is their lack of peering with SAIX but we have yet to hear a complaint from any users. Speed wise, I have managed to pull about 85Mbit/s from the server myself and still seen other requests handled, so I don't think there are any capacity issues. Our account manager is also far superior to our account manager at IS. Mweb's tech support also seems to be a bit more on the ball than IS.
