    Well I placed an order with Afrihost too and they confirmed today for delivery. So I guess I'm getting my Afrihost LTE router tomorrow too.

    Speeds are pretty iffy so yeah going to stick with Afrihost for now.

    I placed a order with Afrihost last night, paid by credit card so that the payment is immediate, but the website still says verifying payment ??

    The calls are to the benefit of old people, so the folks can hear the details nothing else really.

    I did speak to someone to confirm they have the scanned Rica docs. As they want that and the online login/confirmation done before digital planet gets involved.
    Makes a huge difference, trust me. It's as if they wipe their ass with online/email and only react when you phone

    Have you played PoE yet on this network, is it ok? I have ordered mine on Wednesday and hoping it will do the job, as there are so many complaints here... hehe
