Its been a while since I made a post here and its all a result of not having an ADSL line at home. Why? Well I moved house at the beginning of December and got the phone line installed as soon as possible. Unfortunately our dear incumbent operator Telkom has decided that ADSL will not be possible on my new line even although the exchange is ADSL enabled and I live less than 500m from the DSLAM. Apparently there is some infrastructure issue which prevents them enabling the ADSL service.
What saddens me even more is that I’ve been on the Neotel consumer test trial waiting list since April this year. I’ve followed up with them but it appears they just don’t want my constructive feedback.
