    I would love to see an article comparing the rollout speeds of ADSL vs Fibre

    It feels like fibre is taking alot longer than usual, which is understandable as it needs to be physically installed where telkom lines have always been there, only DSLAM changes were needed.

    But that's something that can be posted on mybroadband rather

    At the rate they're going I feel like I'll probably never get Fibre in my area in my lifetime.
