Good idea if you ALREADY have an alternative! Where are the alternatives?
I dont see how any more complaining (and between us all we've done a few
hundred thousand rands worth of it!) will help the situation!
I hope that people wont be too disappointed when the SNO pulls the same
stunts that Telkom does, the MD is quoted in brainstorm as saying that
their prices wont be much better than Telkom's, they would push a value
proposition for around the same (market) price. Iburst does it, sentech
does it - they will all do it.
