I think I qualify to send pm`s now, made it to 50 posts in 8 years.

Hope you received the pm now.

I want to let the world know.

A great many hours, phone calls and correspondence later, neither Telkom nor LiquidTelecom could give any response which was coherent in answering three simple questions:
a. Can you provide a dedicate low contention internet link for +- 20 - 100 Mb/s at a specified address X with GPS coordinates XYZ {This location is in a "small" town along the N1}.
b. If you can, at what cost?
c. In what time frame?

Infraco was willing and motivated to provide answers provided I sign a NDA and proof I at least in the process to register as an ISP.
The basic information they provided was substantial compared to Telkom and LiquidTelecom. Well done for Infraco, a pity some hurdles exist before they can offer real prices.

Praise to this forum`s "Level-7 Representative".
The gentleman responded here, he was willing to speak to me on the phone.
Most important of all, he answered all three questions within 48 hours.

Thank you very much.

I installed the Telkom line with my own hands, near bribed Telkom to come inspect and make the connection live.

Zero issues since this went live.
40Mbs VDSL, Cisco line stats showing speed of 120Mb/s.
ZA VDSL only supports <= 40 Mb/s.
