Jireh has an established Wi-Fi network with 220 high sites while services are typically provided using spectrum in the license-exempt 5.4 GHz and 5.8 MHz bands.
License-exempt?

Sorry.

WHAT?

Is this another example of preferential treatment?

no, it's called ISM ;) But they're wrong, it's GHz, not MHz. Technical writer quality on MyBB has been kind of extra disappointing as of late :/

I'm so loving this, every sent into a wireless provider's pocket is a sent out of Telkom's pocket, something the Telkom scientists apparently cannot grasp.

Dabba - no contact details on website
Uninet - no website and a link to complaint on hellopeter
Jireh - very expensive
So pretty much useless information, thanks

Well its all spectacularly positive. You sometimes only need a spark to set off a wildfire. If that fire is in the form of education and knowledge in general then were talking big win. Even just having access to twitter can bring a person out of the slums into the world at large.

Very true and in these areas they will have economies of scale so if 20 000 people uses R10 a week that's a lot of money.
