A Feather in My Cap My Life 19 SEP 2008

TelkomAh, I’ve finally figured out the mystery surrounding my seemingly never ending Internet cap.

One of the conditions for me working from home for Commerce I.T. is that I need to provide my own Internet connection and seeing as I don’t exactly have unlimited resources, I signed up with Telkom for their Closer 3 telephone with 1GB Internet bundle package. Now in the world of the Internet, 1GB is not exactly a lot and combined with my little 500MB Vodacom 3G package, I tend to surf and use the Net rather sparingly.

Of course, that said, I always end up going well over my cap way before the end of the month and I’ve yet to be capped. Don’t ask me why, I couldn’t tell you!

Until now that is.

Only yesterday did I learn that Telkom automatically gives it subscribers 10GB of free local cap per month, which all of a sudden makes a lot of sense when you think that all the work I do is on a local server, sitting on the university campus!

And who says ignorance is bliss? :)
