    This depends on which fixed LTE partner you went with. WebAfrica? Kills torrents mostly all the time. Afrihost? They don't seem to really care.

    Rain seems to struggle for me too, most I get is 150kbps. Once I switch over to Telkom it goes full speed 3mbps.
    Soooo, where do you see yourself in five years?

    On a more serious note though, it is hard not to pirate. It removes so many obstacles.
    Currently:
    Spotify helps with "listen before you buy".
    iTunes for buying music.
    Netflix for watching series.(although it seems rather limited currently)
    Just anime that's still sourced alternatively.
