    Default Afrihost, CrystelWeb?

    Hi guys

    I know couple of months back it was between these 2, and then on a good day MWEB.

    Whats the current feeling ?

    Pro's and cons.

    Crystelweb guy, seem to remember you pop in here, do you provide service out of the Alberton/Meyersdal exchange, 20Mb VDSL ?

    Please PM me prices.

    I have CW and Vox. Afrihost. Axxess, Plugg, Incredible Connection Connect and Mweb before that.

    CW is hands down the best quality of Internet I've used.

    CW, no question. Try them out. If you aren't convinced just give cancellation notice before the 19th and you can have a new ISP the following month. Which you can't do on Mweb.

    hmmm data bundles look expensive, paying R200 atm for a 100GB+100GB. Won't mind going to a open anytime 350GB.
    same speed.
    tried to talk to their online chat guy, but he is either busy with something else or talking to to many people atm, was not active in conversation, will retry tomorrow.

    Question,

    traffic shaping, as what MWEB is doing... is it done on the line, or on the data side.
    If I switch to CW, immediately, will I still get shaped no the line by MWEB.

    Wait for next week. They said they're introducing new products and updating their prices.

    AfriHost is junk at the moment, btw. Our 50gb account from them is unusable for streaming in the evenings. Just have a look at their thread, most people are complaining about poor streaming performance in the evenings.

    so if I sign up today i miss out on prices, but waiting for next week might imply having to sit with MWEB for an entire another month...

    eish, the choices.

    hehehe can see a sales guy being annoyed now.

    Started the cancellation process with MWEB, emailed them. thinking their cancellation process will be allot slower than the signing up for new services with CW.

    How did you get VDSL on that exchange? I was told it is not available on that exchange.

    Maybe for you, but don't paint AH in a bad light, as not everybody is having an issue.
