  The 0860007249 number is that of World online/Global internet access. 

  I helped a user with his home pc last week and the at is where I saw the number.

  I was with Iafrica/Mweb for many years but, when Mweb wanted to charge me 
  business rates (+R300pm) just because I have a registered domain & wanted 
  the maildrop facility, I said cheers! 

  I've been with Kingsley since Feb this year. R109pm incl. free maildrop (ie 
  *@geograph.co.za all goes into my kingsley mailbox). 

  I know there's cheaper available, but I am not sure of the service quality. 

  With Kingsley I dial the same 0860007249 number that a billion other virtual 
  ISPs use (is it the IS backbone??) and, when I was in Bellville I used to 
  regularly get connection at 50K and now, in Kirstenhof, I get only 44k - 
  that tells me it's a Telkom issue. 

  Never the less my download speeds are regularly above 4.3KB/s - even often 
  above 5.7-6KB/s - slower during the evenings, though, but I dont logon much 
  during the evenings. 

  I'd be curious of other peoples experiences.
