Congratulations to MWEB and Telkom for getting this right. I am sure it was difficult for both companies to get this done, and it is good to see that it has happened at last.

Wow, good work MWEB! Un-freaking-believable. You achieved the impossible.

Made Telkom see reason! That's like not only moving mountains, but getting them to do a tap-dance as well.

Guys....Enough with the mugshots...

But, Im glad to hear that things are finally on track! Would Reduced local lag and better/faster local packet routing be an outcome of this?

So Mweb finally paid up!
Lol, +10

I'm pretty sure the NDA must be there to cover up the compromise on Telkoms part where they're charging Mweb a reduced fee for the peering. They just don't want other ISPs knowing about it and also demanding for the same treatment. Well call me a cynic but Telkom have never given me a reason to think otherwise.

I'm not so sure. Telkom are not one to back down (they have no need to as they control the market). Mweb are marketing kings. If they had negotiated free peering or a low rate, they would be all over the news announcing their victory and pronouncing themselves as our saviours.

Interconnections need to be lodged with ICASA and are there for public scruntiny. Any licensed ISP has the legal right to details of the deal.

I doubt it. MWEB wouldn't go for "reduced fees" for something that's supposed to be free. They said "we will not pay one more cent", remember, not "we will pay less". There's no reason for them to start paying Telkom again.

Yes, the NDA is to prevent other ISP's from seeing Telkom admit that their nonsense was nonsense.

MWEB never paid a cent.... Telkom (as the only Dodo left standing) landed up having to eat humble pie!!!

So why is it a big secret then? Telkom won't divulge any details and Mweb are under a NDA?

If its true, then well done Telkom and Mweb. This puts your users first, which is a great move.
