Anything FREE you pay 4 it in the long run ..
My Telkom invoice is 14 pages this month R 51.20 going over the local limit ;-(

and I cant get Google. co.za (Youtube works )
you see diane, you have to modify the hosts. file (see the link Pada gave) to force google stuff to run on local. uhm, how old is your son? kids are pretty tech savy these days, maybe he could help?

If anyone would like an invite to local indexing site pm me. You can view latest uploaded tv series, movies, mags etc and download with local cap.

They're using CDN (content distribution network) for their downloads, but not for their website. Their CDN, which is called Akamai, includes local mirrors, which is why you'll be able to download Microsoft updates/content with local only cap. You'll see that the website runs off http://www.microsoft.com/ and their downloads are on http://download.microsoft.com/

Microsoft, Nvidia and AMD all use CDN's that have mirrors in South Africa. I don't know about any others though.
