Mmm. Since we have this nice thread revival, maybe someone can enlighten me.
I've been on Telkom Do Broadband 2 for many years now and not many complaints. I don't do a lot of online gaming; mostly just surfing the net (wired to my PC) and downloading updates and synching trophies for PS3 (via wireless network).
From time to time things give hastles (internet very slooow or just stops working). Then when you phone Telkom, you hold on for an hour before someone picks up. While you hold on a message plays, saying that they can come out to check things out, but if it turns out the internet being off wasn't their fault, there will be a call out fee.
Now my wife hears the MWeb advert: "If you're stuck behind a truck on the freeway, just switch to another lane! If your ISP is cr#p, just switch to MWeb!" (or something like that)
I'm just not sure that it will make any difference. You can have MWeb be your service provider, but your internet is still running on Telkom lines. So (if my reasoning is correct) you might have internet hassles from time to time, no matter who your ISP is. So now if i switch to MWeb, they're just gonna say: "Ja, we see the Telkom lines in your area are giving problems. Phone them and report a fault"
Am I right or wrong? Hoe werk die goed?
