So for the past few years we have been running off capped lines with uncapped out of the reach for regular people (Unless they loaded with cash). A few months ago a company called MWEB introduced affordable uncapped internet. Soon after other companies decided to also offer affordable uncapped internet. However the Dominant company - Telkom still kept their uncapped deals way out reach for average people. I am running ATM a 384 kbps uncapped, shaped line hosted by MWEB, it's more reasonable than my previous 3gb capped 384kbps line with Telkom, and is roughly 1 quarter of the price. However the amount I pay for my current line could get me a high speed 10meg line oversees :/

Later this year we are supposed to receive a line upgrade. (384 - 512kbps) I hope someone actually decides to push it forward...

Well I hope you realize how much people are ripped off in my country. Special thanks to the greedy ISP's for taking everyone's money :)

Until Next Time
