Most def.

The biggest barrier to global connectivity currently in SA is our one and only telecommunications SP. Dial-ups are still the cheapest way to go (even with the ridiculous charges allowed by their monopoly), but the quality of service is vrot, to say the least.

The introduction of the second hardline network should give them the wake-up call they need to get their act together. And with the wireless-competition between all three cellular players the prospects are looking good for all prospective surfers.

I don't know, you would have thought that between Vodacom and MTN's competition, they would drastically reduce cellular rates to try outdo each other. It's almost like they agreed to both charge through the roof, but offer different rip-off deals. Almost like "If we both charge ridiculously, people won't know any better and will HAVE to pay a high price." Cell-C then reckoned they might as well do the same...

And is it true that Vodafone wants to purchase Telkom? Just rumours I heard, but what would I know, I'm very far away at the moment so lost touch with news in S.A. Visiting SA is strange when I have to pay to be online, I'm paying about £15 a month for dial-up and the number I dial is free, so £15 is ALL I pay, no connection fees whatsoever. Moving to 8Meg Broadband would only be £25 a month in total (£10 more than I'm currently paying), and still be free to stay connected as long as I want, AND there are NO download limits. ONLY REASON I don't change to 8 meg is because where I'm staying at the moment, I can't get broadband due to address and billing mix-ups with cable lines. Long story short, there's no way around it.
