After checking out all the options, I decide on getting an ADSL line for internet access, as this will cost me less than my current dialup costs from home. This decision was made after confirming with the idiot at the telkom helpdesk that my ISP charges stay the same.
Now after getting the line installed after almost 4 months of waiting for them to upgrade the exchange, they want to nail me with a R199 a month ISP charge. Bend over and take it without vaseline!
So, I will be changing ISPs then, can anyone recommend a CHEAP good one?
