Broadband ??

Well after a few hours researching broadband in ZA, I am still undecided on which service to go for. I have read a lot of complaints about all the vendors as well as some praise. I must say it just seems that South African companies just don't get the idea of good service.

Instead there seems to be a blanket rule to rip us off and provide bad or non existent service, this has created a situation where all choices are the same and one needs to decide which evil to go for.

Why doesn't one vendor at least provide exceptional service and thereby distinguish themselves from the others in a world where they all seem to want to get rich overnight, or even better, offer good service and good value, and really make a killing. It all seems so easy in my mind.

Broadband for me

I am looking to get a broadband connection at home, and have been searching the internet for information and came across this forum, have a look at what these people have said. MyADSL - iBurst is faster than 1024 ADSL
Also I did a cost comparison and iBurst is the better deal to go for.

Sectional Title

Being an owner in a few Sectional Title developments I found these websites quite helpfull.

Sectional Titles Online - Graham Paddock - a 'self-help' resource for those involved in sectional titles

RESTOA is a non-political, non-profit Association which was formed to represent all owners of Residential Sectional Title. Based on a Constitution of sound principals, the Association will, through the respective Bodies Corporate, promote and defend owners’ interests as defined in the Sectional Title Act 95 of 1986 and all amendments and enactments thereto up to and including Act No 44 of 1997.

Act gives sectional title owners relief - The latest amendments to the Sectional Titles Act provide improved protection for owners in sectional title flats, townhouses and complexes, but in some cases the amendments do not go far enough.
