Not really a very good comparison, are we looking at the new or old Telkom prices? How about having both in the table to show the effect of the increases?

Dare I say that of the lot the Telkom one offers the best bang for the buck, taking shaping/throttling/etc into account?

They don't. With MWEB you got called names and throttled, but at least you had your full speed most of the time until that point. I've NEVER had the 4Mbit I pay for with Telkom, ever.

I almost never had full speed with Mweb. Shaped and throttled to hell all the way.

So if I'm with afrihost for 2mbps individual, who on that list would give me the same quality at a lower price? All of them?

I am looking for a new service provider from 1 August as I cancelled with Openweb. Should I go for Telkom, Afrihost or Mweb? After hours speeds are very important to me. I don't want to be shaped whilst watching my Apple TV 9 o' clock at night.

I watch 100% of my TV on the AppleTV using MWeb. Never had even the slightest problem

Telkoitm are the pits!

Staying at a relative's house and the connection is terrible... barely getting 384 speeds on a 4 meg connection!

I switched over to my Afrihost capped account and it has been flying ever since!

Telkom always flies my side - never had an issue with them.
