I get cut off all the time for the last year or so and thet cant seem to fix it,.but last week when I reached my 80% of usage it worked perfectly till the end of month.....now I shall have to c if its still working properly this month...very frustrating these one sided contracts we sign with large corporations....
My wife was robbed at the Spar atm. The criminals fled with her atm cards. The Standardbank emergency number at the atm did not work, it just kept disconnecting. Needless to say they withdrew the maximum daily limit shortly after.
Had continous problems trying to keep all those copper contacts working,have gone totally wireless for over a year now, Neotel as home phone and 8ta 3g for internet at a lower overall cost than landline adsl.
When the ADSL went down I took a chance connecting my cell phone to the PC. Walla!, within minutes I had internet. I run on Linux. Ever since I have been experimenting with Vodacom and MTN simcards in the phone. The only disadvantage compared to ADSL, is that I could not succeed to do remote terminal sessions or expose my webserver at home to the internet, which is a fairly simple matter on ADSL. As far as wireless contracts are concerned, I think it is better to just buy a simcard for R12, purchase a databundle and enjoy. It works like a charm. No contracts for me anymore.
