    If you give me more details, I'd love to find out more regarding the query.
    Unfortunately it's NDA confidential.

    Nee fok man.

    Stop chasing the cheapest option.

    Quality Vs price = Value.

    Not cheapest. They don't have a FUP and unshaped.

    Anyways, Looks like I'm going to stick with ADSL until Frogfoot is set up in my area. At the moment it's only Openserv, and Frogfoot is cheaper, Installation is R1k cheaper too and faster upload speeds.

    My understanding is that I can keep my adsl with telkom and just move at not cost (1 time) so for now let me do that till frogfoot is setup.

    Then I don't think you can bitch and moan about it and how horrible they are if you can't be more specific.

    It's like me ragging on other ISP's but I never used them before - it's just not right.

  6. Saying Thanks:

    Except that I have used them for a rather large project and they were piss poor.

    And you really should be more up front about your sponsorship when punting them.

    It's disingenuous to do otherwise.

    All the more reason to run away because it's impossible to maintain a network without an FUP unless you are the smallest of small and running at a loss.

    Or they implement it without being up front about it.

    Anyways, Looks like I'm going to stick with ADSL until Frogfoot is set up in my area. At the moment it's only Openserv, and Frogfoot is cheaper, Installation is R1k cheaper too and faster upload speeds.

    If Openserve is already there it's unlikely someone else will be as well.

    They generally don't compete and it's an either/or case.

    And I could say the same thing about your "piss poor" excuse of a reason to bitch and moan... I want specifics before I even consider giving you specifics.

    It’s not remotely the same thing.

    You have a vested interest that you left undeclared and therefore removed all objectivity you may have.

    I am a completely independent third party and don’t need to provide anything.

    We don’t need specifics from you. Just open honesty that your views may be tainted for the very reason that you receive the services for free.

    It’s not to say you can’t like them and can’t punt them. Just be up front about your relationship with them.
