hey guys im talking to you from South Africa (where i live
)

and our ISPs are finally offering Uncapped ADSL (4MB/s - currently fastest in SA) for really cheap!!! this is the first time any consumers and home users can actually afford this stuff, and with the huge seacom cable here, all of our ISPs are making huge steps.

this may not seem like much to you guys but most people have 512kb/s with only 3-4GB of bandwith a month for more than the new deals!

so i guess south africa is going somewhere -----FINALLY!

Cool, my GF said something like that too.

Where is that from? And how much a month?

Edit: I see, MWeb, at R539 a month for 4mbit uncapped but shaped.

Not bad

i think thats the 512kb/s its not that cheap yet!
4Mb/s is around R800pm.

but i see that @lantic (lantic.net) is now topping this offer! there uncapped is even CHEAPER than Mwebs.
go take a look

I meant just for data prices.


Maybe I need to wait a month or 2 to see who follows suit


Thanks

Congrats! Looks like more and more countries are pushing for faster internet. I just got a free boost from my ISP. 6Mbps additional on top of my 10Mbps for no extra charge!
