If this does occur and the entry level speed is bumped up to 4Mbps it would be good yes.

However, I demand a free upgrade as well 4 Mbps to 10Mbps (They will just have to upgrade the network in our area as well to support 10 Mbps)

Looks like they are sad about it,but trying really hard to sound optimistic about it for their clients,more data for consumers at the same price means less margins for them......

I agree with you 100%

If the upgrade was to happen, at a minimum you would save on your line rental... That must count for something?

Yeah, even without a drop in IPC, it will allow ISP's to drop their 4mbps bundle pricing quite a bit - which is a major win in their quest to tempt more people into signing up for ADSL.

I am in the same ADSL speed-trap ... My local exchange only supports up to 4Mbps, which is what I am on now

In a way, we are all Telkom's customers with the voice rental part of ADSL. Anyway, I fully support this upgrade if it will happen. :)
Unfortunately it only relates to the ADSL rental, which Telkom have totally separated from the POTS rental... :p

After this upgrade some will be left with tears. We all know what happened the last time they did this

They should just charge one flat fee for an ADSL line and then give all users the maximum speed achievable on that line. Then ISPs can price various uncapped offerings so that consumers can just choose the one that is right for them.

I totally agree, I think they do this in the UK. Just you don't pay the line rental, the isp covers all of that.
