Yet another reason why I hate Telkom

Telkom
Line speed = 1Mbps
Download Size = 100GB
Est. Download Time = 9.5 days

ISP (34 x 3GB accounts @ R269) = R9 146
Line rental (ADSL) = R680
Line rental (residential voice) = R92.28

Total = R9 918.28

Hong Kong
Line speed = 1Gbps
Download Size = 100GB
Est Download Time = 13 minutes
Flight (SAA) = R7 942
Internet cafe (average cost @ HKD20) = R17.43

Total = R7 959.43

Difference: Hong Kong is cheaper by R 1 958.85

So to sum up, it’s cheaper and quicker to fly to Hong Kong if you want to download 100GB of data!”

Want to read more frightening stats, then go to www.hellkom.co.za. Maximum respect to these guys for sticking up for all of us and hopefully one day soon making a difference!

If you are reading this from overseas, then I would love to know how much internet access costs in your country. It can’t cost more than here in South Africa! Post a comment and let me and other Saffas know.

Google will soon become an Internet Service Provider

Google has recently announced its plan to become an all inclusive portal. Not only will they be providing us with all the world’s information organised perfectly and brought to us in milliseconds through our internet browsers, but soon they will be providing us with access to the internet as well. Quite a task I think, but if they pull this off, i think they deserve the millions they are making.

The city sleeps

Quote of the Day

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our dark that most frightens us. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people don’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine as children do. Its not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own lights shine, we unconsiously give other people the right to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.

Taken from the movie Coach Carter
