    Hi Hi

    I see the new prices listed on the myBB home page, I like, is that it, or are they going to announce even more?
    Like the CW Home Xtreme Capped option.
    I see it is listed as 150GB, does that mean 150GB available during day time and then uncapped 0:00 - 06:00 ?

    Uncapped midnight to 6pm, and capped for the remaining 6 hours.

    Even though you've already decided (and made the right decision ), I'll add my voice to what others have said: Crystal Web hands down! They're a bit more expensive, but you get what you pay for. We have no issues with them whatever.

    The more expensive is also arguable...

    being more by R25/month, but that gives me an additional 50GB cap.

    What's arguable? Crystal Web 150gb is R389, Afrihost is R149…

    Maybe you should look at the myBB wall, CW new xTreme 150GB Capped at R249

    @bwana, I know you punting Afrihost, but also pretty clear by now I'm NOT going that way,

    Sorry, was going by the prices on their website, so it's only R100 more. Well worth it.

    And fwiw I only suggested trying Afrihost because they offered a trial, on any of their packages, for R1 for the remainder of the month.

    He's pretty much repeating what I said to him as well... At R1 for a month it cannot hurt to experiment, especially as you still have your current package to fall back on. I don't see where bwana said that one is any better than the other.

    By testing a capped account, I'm currently Telkom Uncapped, I'm getting a good idea of what package I'll need if/when I switch to a capped account with a different ISP. No point getting a massive cap if I don't need it.

    The thing is with AfriHost your first month might run okay, and then two months down the line you sit with endless issues that AH seems powerless to resolve.

    When AH works, it works really well. It's when it doesn't that's the issue. I just cannot recommend them to anyone with how unpredictable their network is.
