ROFL!!! Been waiting about 2 years myself. Telkom, do you have any plans to grow your infrastructure, are you looking for staff to manage and plan your capacity upgrades *raises hand*4 years waiting for a line install, 8 months waiting for wimax install... by the time i get it i will be dead and my grandchildren will be trying to get a line.
Wow. So if you run a car at 60 km/h and then at 200 km/h for the same length of time it's going to costs you exactly the same??? I mean, using your logic, all we are doing is flexing a small pedal.LOL how does it cost Telkom more money between 384kb and 4meg it runs on the bladdy same network.
Have you ever heard the word "backhaul"?LOL how does it cost Telkom more money between 384kb and 4meg it runs on the bladdy same network.
Do guys actually believe that the data does not pass through the same network LOL what do you think it takes to upgrade a clients line?
Would you believe me if I told you it's a simple bladdy tick box?
It's as simple as punching in the number to get to the relevant exchange the number belongs to untick 512kb and tick 1mg and then applying the changes at a certain time.
The can even check what speed the bladdy exchange is rated at which is not always accurate LOL mine was rated at 512 kb and they tried 4meg and it worked I was obviously close enough to the exchange.
Either way the software frontend they use then applies the changes if you then experience problems with the line after they upgraded you a tec is assigned and the test the best speed or max speed your line can stably run at.
And then charge you for a 4meg line that’s running at let’s say 2 meg as I’ve seen many users complain about.
Telkom sucks I am sorry the moment there’s a better solution out there I am getting it for now they can take my money LMFAO
Not as easy as that. Your distance from the exchange and the age of your copper line dictates your line speed.Good move by Telkom , now what about uping the rest 4-10 and 10-20. Then you would see lots of happy people.
True my point might be flawed if the car that you speaking was exactly the same car but it’s not Telkom said they upgraded their network I am I the only one that saw all the commercials before the soccer world cup lol meaning there network should handle it with ease maybe they taking a step by step bases.Wow. So if you run a car at 60 km/h and then at 200 km/h for the same length of time it's going to costs you exactly the same??? I mean, using your logic, all we are doing is flexing a small pedal.
Your point is seriously flawed dude.
You need to separate the core network from the access network in order to justify your arguments.True my point might be flawed if the car that you speaking was exactly the same car but it’s not Telkom said they upgraded their network I am I the only one that saw all the commercials before the soccer world cup lol meaning there network should handle it with ease maybe they taking a step by step bases.
What about the users that’s paying a 4 meg line cost but is only getting a sync speed of 1meg ? how unfair would that be ? will they now pay a 512 kb lines cost seeing it’s going to be upgraded to 1meg anyway ?
K let’s put it this way they have upgraded their core network to run speeds up to 12 meg but they can't upgrade the 384 kb clients to 512 ? and don’t come and say there is way more 384kb users, has Telkom supplied a report on it yet ? no so nobody can say for sure.
If they really upgraded their network it should not feel anything in reality because the exchanges can handle the speeds already right? When I say this I mean 1meg 512 kb most of the exchanges should be able to handle.
I am I the only one that noticed that telkom went all quiet about upgrading the rest of the 4meg clients to 10 or 12 meg even 8 I wonder why is it because it's going to cost them to upgrade certain exchanges to adsl2 why don’t they release some sort of upgrading plan?
I reckon telkom is not so confident about their network period trails on 512 to 1 meg lines LMAO but they brag about 8 10 and 12 meg ?I think they should do another study and see how many users that has been upgraded to 1meg from 512kb exchanges support 10meg this will give us an indication if telkom will only be upgrading those exchanges running on metro ethernet users to 1meg or everyone just a simple check lol.
Personally i dont trust them they full of lies and empty promises.
