just got my CELL C broadband. 2 GIG for R 1500,00 for 13 month. I do not know how fast vodacom is, but i had MTN, and cell C is like a Ferrari compared to MTN. Faster and cheaper + no contract. hiha....
Its three times faster than vodacom. Anyone still using MTN or Vodacom is getting taken for a huge ride. Did the math- you are being charged around 8 times more and its a lot slower.I had vodacom and I'm so glad I switched.
I think ADSL is faster and cheaper. I pay uncapped 99 Rand per month (no contract) for bandwidth. I have to pay the Telkom 130 plus Vat for connection. Total of about 250. I take a dividend as I save 1500-250 a month
dude, the Cell C price is once off annually, so it is already cheaper than your ADSL, and your DSL line is 386kbs, while Cell C has been consistently clocked at 4.8mbs? That is well over 10 times faster than your ADSL.
I can certainly vouch for Cell C broadband in Cape Town ( Newlands and Paarden Island). 3 times the data bundle at "twice" the speed for half the price. No roll-overs though. So far it's been fantastic.
I had considered replacing my ADSL with the Cell C R1500 offer - prompted initially by a bunch of unexplained outages. There are problems however. Where do you get a decent email service that integrates into Outlook ?. Yahoo, hotmail etc are OK for occasional use but I see no way to have email automatically dowload to PC. The Cell C special is for one year only. Their data bundles are +- the same price as MTN/Vodacom and would be more expensive than my current MWEB ADSL. DBM - who do you use for ADSL at R99 per month and how is their service. In the meantime I have got a Vodacom Internet starter pack with modem and 100Mb's per month for 1 year as backup for the ADSL.
Guys read DR post above. this is how it works. if it is said top speed is 21mbps, it is meant 21mbps dedicated to tower X(sector A). if more people subscribe to under that tower x(sector A), you are going back to where everyone is. try to follow arguments presented by Cell C competitors when they complain about Cell C's way of advertising. Vodacom had LTE and it makes their connection run faster. When i went to University of Limpopo in Polokwane, i was using my cousin's MTN and it delivered well, i assumes there were fewer people dedicated to that sector using MTN data.
