    Just trying to save some money and think 170GB is a bit low for the cost of business uncapped, esp if you can move some data during the overnight window.

    Do you use capped or uncapped? Also is it advisable to go capped on my usage or should consider bolt-on?

    Just one thing, I know a few people who are with Cybersmart and have phoned in several times and complained about slow speeds. After a few phone calls, they got moved to a "new realm" and their speed issues vanished. I personally tested out my one friends home uncapped account after he had it moved to a new realm and it was actually an excellent account! It may just be worth a try
    I have a 2Mbps IC Uncapped line and ran between 60-80Gb per month (mostly evening series watching - no real torrents and always scheduled from 23:00-6). We now get throttled during the day that home mail and chat becomes totally unusable. Moved to VOX now to see how their system will degrade after a few months of usage.

    webafrica lost all my emails from 15h50 until this morning and there have been many times when my website could not be accessed. When I asked them why the site was down, the said they did not detect a problem.

    The above prices are all inclusive, there are no extra charges. So you can go for the 10MB/s option as it will be within you specified budget.

    These prices also apply to fibre so if you are in an area with openserve fibre coverage then get the fibre, more reliable than copper and your upload speed is 50% of your download speed.

    Included value

    Free line rental.
    Free Telkom-to-Telkom calls – mobile and landline.
    Free installation and wireless router.
    Free mobile data SIM.
    Discounted calls to top 30 international destinations.
    Includes CallCatcher, IdentiCall (CLIP), WaitingCall, and CallAnswer (Voicemail).
    Nighttime data usage – midnight to 07:00 – does not count toward FUP.

    FUP

    Telkom’s fair-use policy on its uncapped products, as defined in its terms and conditions, is detailed below.

    FUP Level 1 (50% of quota value) – The customer will be throttled to approximately 50% of their product speed for the 2 hours of highest demand daily until rollover.
    FUP Level 2 (75% of quota value) – The customer will be throttled to approximately 25% of their product speed for the 4 hours of highest demand daily until rollover.
    FUP Level 3 (100% of quota value) – The customer will be throttled to an 8th of their product speed or 384kbps (whichever is higher) until the following rollover date, except during NightSurfer.


    You can get this on month-to-month which excludes a router or 24 month contract which includes a router.
