With all the issues that have been going on with congested exchanges etc I decided to have the guys from Sonic come out last week to do an inspection. As luck would have it I am 1.2km away from one of the main towers and 4.2kms away from the other. So what does this mean? It means I can get a pretty damn decent connection! Its not goinf to be cheap but hey, I need my internets back!

They are installing today and I will let you all know how it goes when I get home.

Wish me luck:D

I'm deciding to jump on the Sonic wireless band wagon myself, just waiting for my site survey & keeping fingers crossed.

Correct, it is the sonicwireless.co.za

They go up to 10mpbs but you can ask them to custom make a package for you.
I am paying R 2499-00 for a 20mbps connection.

Little update
Last night there was an issue somewhere with interference and I had a very unstable connection.
Logged a call and everything was sorted out later that evening ( Impressed )

Speed is still consistent

I'm in Kuils river and I like what you guys are saying about your experience. Our fam lives on Netflix and hulu, any one streaming on this service? Experience?
