saix.net looks exactly today like the telkom one back then. To be fair, saix still says best viewed in IE 6...

I remember being introduced to PCs and the internet back in mid 90's! We were using Netscape.

Telkom's webpage has not changed much. It is just as confusing to navigate it.

I wish they had a screen grab of the FNB website of 2000. Would be interesting to compare. That is more or less the time I switched to FNB (from Absa). I never looked back.

And how embarrassed I am when someone digs up one of those web-archive screenshots prior to 2010 :whistling:. Interesting fact: Although the UI has changed, the underlying transactional core still runs the same framework (custom Java) on commodity infrastructure.
