....sounds like you in a Stalig.....meantime I went out earlier and now see some really pushing the envelope....joggers 2 of them....and it looks like cops have been picnicking in the spot where I secretly walk my dog.....I found discarded amongst the litter of food packaging uncompleted SAPS statement forms where they have recorded a Pakistani name and passport number....:whistle:

My wife's been whining for some time now
Wanting me to take her on a cruise
Now we've been married for twenty-five years
So she wasn't gonna let me refuse

So we packed up our bags and off we went
Kinda like a second honeymoon
I said, "Fix us some sandwiches to eat on the way"
Then I told her we'd be there soon

She said, "Where are we going Hawaii or Bahamas?"
I said, "This place is better than that"
We stopped at a place that said, "Paddle Boats Here"
I said, "We're here, now don't forget your hat"

Well, now needless to say, I did something wrong
'Cause my wife started throwing such a fit
We went around circles for at least twenty minutes
'Cause everytime I'd paddle, she'd quit

Now I wasn't gonna pay for no life perservers
My bicycle tubes worked fine
My wife had that tube wrapped around her neck
And both of her hands around mine

Well, to make a long story short, she'll never forget
That time I took her on a cruise
And everytime I even try to forget it
I remember that horrible bruise

i would like to have seen the broadband/Cellular companies make free data available to all clients.

lots of people from informal settlements dont have uncapped contracts. they use wifi hotspots etc when they are out and about.

this would allow people to study at home etc

would reduce people walking about as well , sure other social benefits as well.


.....lets see if Vodacom stands by their announcement of a 30% drop in data costs from next month....this was announced before the Corona virus issues became more prevalent locally and now the subsequent lock down....also they were giving away free data almost daily through their current "shake and win" promotion and I have not seen a data freebie for nearly a month now and I have several Vodacom devices....currently my home fibre is spluttering, splurging and cutting out and this is during working hours....how will we cope when a majority are at home from Friday....:whistle:


.......looks like Vodacom have not come to the party as reported.....my current contracts have not been increased by the 30%.....last time a decrease in data charges was announced they followed through by increasing the amount of data from 500mb to 650.....today NADA....:angry:

Vodacom to slash data prices by at least 30%, clients to get free access to some websites
Mar 10 2020 11:47 Londiwe Buthelezi

MTN, Vodacom to slash data prices or face prosecution; all providers must give free data daily - competition watchdog

All Vodacom customers are set to pay at least 30% less for their data bundles, as the mobile operator has agreed to slash its prices and provide free internet access to the poor, as demanded by the Competition Commission in December.


The mobile operator’s CEO Shameel Joosub said the company will sacrifice R2.7 billion a year as part of the agreement. From 1 April, a one gigabyte of Vodacom data will cost no more than R99, compared to the current R149, translating to a 34% price decrease.

The company will further decrease its bundle prices in April next year, which will mean more than a 40% price reduction, said the minister of trade and industry, Ebrahim Patel.

Tembinkosi Bonakele, Commissioner of the SA Competition Commission, said talks were underway with all the other mobile operators, and that negotiations were in at "quite advanced" stages with some. Bonakele expects to conclude new price deals with other operators "sooner [rather] than later".

Free access to sites

Vodacom will also, from next month, zero-rate a number of websites. This means that its subscribers won't have to use their internet bundles to access university portals, Wikipedia, and certain government e-service portals and departmental websites, like those of the department of home affairs and school enrolment platforms.

Job seekers will also have free access to seven approved job portals.

Vodacom's Facebook Flex, which allows subscribers to access a "data light" version of the social platform on their phones for free, will also be extended to all subscribers.

About 2 000 suburbs and villages living below the poverty line will get personalised discounts, over and above the zero-rating and discounts given to all customers. The commission did not disclose the value of these pro-poor discounts to protect "competitive elements" of the deal.

Bonakele said customers buying low-value bundles would benefit the most from these discounts.

"Shameel [Joosub] has been a very tough and robust negotiator, but has handled these negotiations with the necessary compassion for his clients," said Bonakele.

Joosub said the mobile operator chose to "constructively engage" with the commission instead of fighting it following the release of its final report into data pricing in December.

I have a 3 Gigs Vodacom contract,had it for years,I checked last night and had 4.15 Gigs was still available,checked today and rollover data gone. Balance check says I have 6 G available,did a detailed balance check and my rollover data is gone and the 6G is for two months.The sneaky fuckers,not only has my rollover data gone but if i didn't do a detailed check I would have used the 6 Gigs thinking that it was for April and not spread over two months.Perhaps I'm not understanding the detailed balance thing,not sure who to contact.
