Not mentioned is the shambles on the ground. All along the N2 between East London and King William's Town and then King William's Town, through Peddie and through Grahamstown, big fibre conduit rolls lie abandoned on the side of the road, orange conduit lies on top of the ground for kilometres at a time. It's a joke.

Liquid Telecom is a corrupt bunch with fingers in the government... I realized this when I saw their pathetic CEO speaking at the MyBroadband Cloud conference... and they sponsor a lot of these events to buy even more corruption... take care MyBB.. these are a dodgy bunch!
