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.

Do you use P2P at all?
How does that do? I haven't tried it properly yet.

Can anyone comment on their 2mb uncapped line, will it be bareable for streaming and gaming?

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
