I don't follow.Don't get lured.. Just a saving of RR100
ISDN dial up speeds are terrible will take forever to load a website
So it's locked to a base station? If not I can see a lot of problems with this scheme. Even if it is I see problems like people being locked to the wrong base. Either way not a service I'll take then even if I could afford it.It will also limit the number of uncapped users to 150 per base station to ensure the quality of service remains high.
The introductory offer will start at R599 for the first 50 customers, R699 for the second 50, and R799 for the final 50 available packages at each base station.
So P2P, HTTP, FTP and NNTP throttled after 50GB.I don't follow.
Here they give you uncapped with 50GB FUP. You finish your cap, then some protocols will be throttled to 128Kbps from "from 6pm to 12am".
So it seems like you can download at full LTE speeds for whatever protocols they don't throttle from 12:01am to 5:59pm.
So before 50GB, maybe, due to this "Normal fair usage policy".Would Netflix/Hulu/HBOnow be throttled?
Too damn good a deal.Sounds like a very good deal. LTE speeds can be decent in most cases but how fast the service will be will be once the people start piling up on the towers will be interesting...
They're not throttling HTTP traffic as far as I could make out
BitTorrent (P2P) application to application (HTTP), application to server traffic (FTP) and news servers (NNTP)These bandwidth-intensive protocols and applications were defined as BitTorrent, application to application traffic, application to server traffic, and news servers (NNTP)
HTTP is not application to application. It is Server (to client).BitTorrent (P2P) application to application (HTTP), application to server traffic (FTP) and news servers (NNTP)
That's how I put it at #7.
What is app to app traffic?
Ok. Yes, still find hard to believe HTTP isn't throttled. That's a crux.HTTP is not application to application. It is Server (to client).
Application to application is peer to peer.
And another correction : application to server traffic does not necessarily mean FTP. It just means large amount of uploads to a server (Could be FTP but also things like Megaupload)
Although not explicitly stated, will the FUP/SoftCap apply to the likes of youtube, vimeo, gaming, Netflix, VPN?These bandwidth-intensive protocols and applications were defined as BitTorrent, application to application traffic, application to server traffic, and news servers (NNTP).
Apparently everything besides HTTP is shaped* to hell between 6PM and 12AM. Pretty weird time slot though but seeing as it's aimed at residential the rationale is probably that most people will be using it within that time. Don't know about the regular speed. If this is Telkom's normal package it's also throttled to 2Mbps during all times.Are speeds throttled.. yes or no. I am confused
