    Question How to get connected with no credit history

    Morning guys, please be gentle as this is my first post in many moons.

    We recently moved back to civilization and now I need to get some semblance of a reliable internet connection. (Jhb - East Rand)

    The snag is that we will probably be relocating to Zambia come March next year so I am looking for a solution to get a decent connection installed that I can either pay upfront or use on a month to month basis.

    Any suggestions or referrals would be much appreciated.

    Your best bet would probably be a wireless connection such as LTE

    Most packages are month to month but first check coverage maps to see which provider has the best coverage for you

    Negotiate with Fibre or even Telkom for a month to month deal, personally wouldn't bother with telkom cause when you cancel will be a nightmare.

    But yeah contact various companies and chat to them for quotes, the ones worthy joining are the ones that will make a deal for you. I got fibre month to month, no installation fee included. Can cancel any time I want. And not paying more then the other deals either.

    Thanks Viking, that seems to be the best solution at the moment. Ideally though I would like to get a fixed line, I am hoping to find a service provider that I can pay in advance for 3 months or so.

    Is exactly what I am looking for, who did you speak to to arrange that?

    I used the chat to sales person function on various sites discussing my needs. You can find the network thats in your area then the portal to the ISP's that are offering their services on that network.

    www.frogfootfibre.com
    www.openserve.co.za

    Decided on RSAWEB in the end with openserv.
    www.rsaweb.co.za

    But as I said chat with them and see what you can get.

    I did the same when I was telkom years ago, Luckily there's lots of options out there now to negotiate with.

    Appreciate the feedback bud, good to know that it is at the very least possible.
