Erm, ok sounds really cool and stuff. Brought up a nice idea though... They say p2p only after hours.
So why not sell packages where you can only connect after hours ? like a p2p package or something
For me it sounds like a great service. Their business solution seems to have not limits. Additional it has a static IP. Sure it is "only" 64k but if they really deliver that service 24/7 that I do not care.
Some more comments on that service?
I need something unmanaged & reliable and maybe this is my deal.
Someone wants to warn me? Or suggest a better solution?

<br />I accidentally discovered that there is another WISP in CPT.
Spoke to a chap who said he knew two users on it who were quite happy.
What stood out for me was that their setup and "activation" (haha) fees were much lower than uninets' or wavestreams':
R1k equipment + R500 "activation" = R1.5k
R400 pm for 64k (low priority in business hours)
Compare to uninets R2.5k setup and wavestreams R5.2k setup.
As these services could be shut down at a moments notice the upfront costs need to be carefully considered.
I've contacted WO and may well consider them if I has LOS and the MW issues are not resolved within the next month.
One worrying thing was that WO did not specify contension ratios which isn't a good sign.

Thanks for this info. I checked it out but like you already mentioned they do not show their ratio. This makes me also very suspicious.
I also think it is strange that they show which games are working. I do not care about games but this is a clear sign that they seem to block most of the ports. Undocumented transparent trafficshaping or blocking on providerside is a real pain. Better pay the price for the bandwidth and fully get than getting some unrealistic info about the theoretic max. bandwitch if I am the only guy in their network using the internet.
I am looking for a reliable provider. Some company to trust on. If there is a network problem I want to get informed. Best in advance. If they change something. Same thing. And most important, I want some guys who know what they are doing. Sometimes I get the impression that most people handling networks in SouthAfrica do not really have the slightest glimpse about network management.
