Telecoms frustrations (again!)

This is so frustrating! All I want to do is talk to my parents, and the pathetic telecoms in SA are making it impossible. Isn't being away from home difficult enough in itself? Does South Africa really want to chase us all away?
And can you believe that a cell-phone internet bundle would actually carry a restriction against using VoIP?
Rant over, but I am still cross.

You are not the only one, see here http://www.hellkom.co.za I worked at Skype for a while and it was liberating to see how telco's are moving away from ripping off people, making it easier and less costly - but not in SA! Voip is deregulated but the mobile networks are keeping a tight fist on what their networks are being used for.

Working for Skype must have been fascinating! I would love to hear more about it. Lets hope things start to improve quickly, particularly now that Neotel is up and running.
