    Isp maxing 8mb line

    Hey all

    South africa monopoly telkom [url]www.telkom.co.za[url] which owns the cable lines which dsl runs on is upgrading to 8 mb in September.

    Im very glad, its a huge step up for us. Must be because of the 2010 world cup that we are moving forward in the telecommunications area.

    How about throttling or traffic shaping....I believe ISPs call it "network management" in their contracts.

    Yeah we will give you 8 megs but you cant use it

    Hey there

    I have a 4 meg line atm. Get around 500 kb/s download.

    anyway here are my charges.

    Telephone rental - R110 incl vat (10 - 15 $) [you cant have an adsl line without a telephone line]

    ADSL line - 4 meg @ R450 incl vat ($50 +/-)
    ADSL account 3 gig int 30 gig local @ R300 incl vat (40 - 45 $)

    There you go.

    Expensive over here!

    It might be expensive, but different country's money equal different amounts, plus at least it's still a step in the right direction.
    I mean if they want to do some huge sporting even then they really need to uprade everything as you carn't broadcast much on a rusted up 56k line now can you.

    And just think now you can download your pr0n a lot quicker then before, and that's all that matters.
