This good but what about last mile capacity? International bandwidth only takes up a small fraction of the cost of ADSL. Now Huawei decides to go scupper the VDSL last mile plans by suing Telkom... It may be a while before we see any change. Does anyone have any info on the court ruling(s)?
International capacity and Telkom's ADSL network aren't really related. Cap/Uncapped packages will mostly be influenced. For telkom to upgrade 384kbps will involve telkom upgrading their local infrastructure e.g. fibre, dslams etc
Amen brother, but the thing is Telkom is going to be let off the hook steadily. We will be charged by the ISPs, but the ISPs will have to recoup a fair percentage of Telkom's losses - Ergo the prices will not be reduced super dramatically right from the word go - Maybe 10-20%. If it was not for the fact that Telkom has based it's budget on milking us dry then they would have completely unbundled the loop, but the gravy train cannot go from 100-0 overnight. It has waaay too much momentum in our beloved country.
