Came across someone wanting to use VOIP (Skype Fring) over their Android phones. This is what I have experienced I have used Skype on my HTC Wildfire with mixed results. Yes I was Skypeout at the other end of the call and that was in Cyprus where communications can be challenging. Skype to Skype seemed to work fine. Anything is worth trying to keep in contact at an effective price rate. I have also used Skype on my iPad with a wireless hotspot on my phone to connect the iPad. Worked great including my sending video and that was in the centre of Johannesburg where reception can be difficult. Give it a try Warmest regards Tim

There are times when people do want to have a landline rather than use cell devices for communication.Telkom has garnered a reputation for not delivering on service at times although I believe it is radically better than it used to be. I found someone asking how to deal with Telkom as he had for many months tried to get an ADSL line and was told it would depend on his area. That is true but when your neighbour gets a line then you do start wondering. This was my reply: Telkom can be difficult and I agree do not let them close the request and in fact ask for it to be escalated. Of course you could always look at alternatives to assist you. MTN has extensive coverage around the Republic and has choices With high bandwidth capability. Have you any idea how much bandwidth you would need in a month? Or to put it differently, what do you want to use the connection for? Sending emails does not need high bandwidth but watching videos does? Drop me a line and I will see what I can do to help you.

Apartments wired for the Internet

Just out being my usual self I read a post for someone who is moving into an apartment that the landlord says is connected to the Internet. Sounds good to me almost too good. Unlimited downloads for free immediately sprang to mind but this is South Africa so this has to be too good to be tru. Anywho the person was told that they would need a new router to connect to the network which is a bit odd. I hope they liked my reply. If your apartment has wireless connectivity and I have seen some that do then you will not need a router to connect to it. However it will have a security key of some sort to enable you to access it. If the apartment has connectivity through a telephone jack then you would need to have a router to access it. This would enable you to connect wirelessly in whichever room you want. In setting up the wireless please make sure that you put a security key on it to stop other people acessing your network. In choosing an ISP you would need to look at how much data you are going to be transferring. It may be better to look at a lower cost package with limited access (capped) at say 3GB rather than going for uncapped or even unshaped connectivity.

The discussion [url=http://mybroadband.co.za/vb/showthread.php/452597-The-state-of-IPv6-in-South-Africa]here[/url]t was one that I followed with interest this week. IPV6 is the reevides addressing protocol that increases addresses so usltimately each device could have its own address. The disussion was sparked by a report from the Free State about the high adoption of the protocol in South Africa since its wotrldwide launch on the 6th of June. Much higher than expected. Whatg intrigued me most is tha from the repsonses we all need to do some more research to fully understand the implications of having the IPV6 and IPV4 standard (Double stacking. It aslo highlighted that we are seeing very little information from the infrastructure providers and ISP\'s about it. Anywho definately one to watch. Any comments? Tim
