Will we be able to use ISP accounts across different providers?

So I understand that with WiMax one uses a standard ADSL ISP account.

i.e. If I have a Telkom WiMax connection I can use my TI, Axxesss, WebAfrica etc acccounts on the same "line", don't know what else to call it.

What I want to know is, when we have Vodacom, IBurst, Neotel and whoever else providing WiMax, are we going to be able to mix and match our ISPs as well?

Do you think they will block other ISPs from their reletive networks or something?

I know you can use a vsat username and password, but I don't think you will be able to use iburst and vc accounts, because you are "logging onto" the Telkom network... If that makes sense. :confused:

And best of all is, you can create more than one connection at the same time using two diffirent dial-ups and two diffirent accounts and get two diffirent IPS for creating hairpin connections! :) Up to a max of 4 though... :-(
