Ja, I think uncapped at lower line speeds is fine. The moment you start going 10Mbps and above uncapped bandwidth starting getting expensive. I was uncapped at 4Mbps for long and then my area got VDSL

I'm using Afrihost, 4Mbit + 200GB cap, unlimited data between 00:00 and 6:00 which is useful for CU+ downloads. Paying R639PM.

That's including the line of course. Data only that would be R399

Tonight I heard that Afrihost only offers support via cellphone number (expensive for my set ups), and that that support is poor and quite a struggle to get anywhere with.
Can't say the same about M-WEB, at least not for the last few years.

Default ADSL

Using 10Mb (so they say), uncapped from MWeb for years now with them managing the Telkom side as well. R899 per month (also for years now).
Just had the Telkom cables stolen in the area, 100m from my house which has affected half our village. So it's hit and miss with MTN's edge at the moment!

Not sure where you heard that. If I have issues , I always contact them on the MyBroadband forums
Very quick and a nice bunch of support people

Thanks, I was hoping that might be somewhat false. Looking forward to more.

EDIT: The guy now thinks he may have got confused between ISP's

They don't often monitor this section, best to send a PM to MC Lindi.

They are very active on the MyBroadband forums, which is the link that caused my post to be moderated. Btw, I'm not affiliated with AH at all

Could be worse, we had a spate of electric cable theft from our Eishkom sub station in Dec., about 4 times and that's in a built up area! Eish!

Optimist I tried to send you a PM but you not talking to me.

Anyway, what I wanted to say off forum was that when looking at going the ADSL route Afrihost was one of those I looked at. I was put off them when my son-in-law, who works for an company that has lots of internet knowledgable people, advised that he was going with Axxess as Afrihost were no longer as good as they used to be. My son-in-law wasn't the only one in his company that decided to go with Axxess. Against this I have a friend who is with Afrihost and he's very happy being with them.

Prior to taking out my Axxess contract I was in communication with both Afrihost and Axxess and will say that they both responded to my questions in a favourable manner.

Not being sure I then went onto Hello Peter and saw a number of complaints against Afrihost in comparison to what was there for Axxess. This though could have simply been because Afrihost has(?) more users?

Guess you "pays your money and takes your choice". Bottom line I suppose is which one offers you the best data package. But maybe peruse the Hello Peter website for info as to what complaints people are having with whatever provider you may be considering?
