And the bandwidth glut begins!

Eish, it's that time of the month, when everyone realises that they still have some bandwidth left to burn on their "broadband" account. That in turn means we all start to suffer collectively as masses music, movies, software & porn(in reverse order) are downloaded by those who have bandwidth to spare.
Already since Sunday afternoon web pages, in my experience both locally and internationally hosted, have begun taking an inordinate amount to load, often requiring a reload.
The forums @ myadsl.co.za have been buzzing since Friday discussing pinging times, a Telkom/Hong Kong link that was down, and a few other theories.
The fact of the matter is, this is going to be an ongoing problem that is just going to get worse, until
a) Telkom gets it's act together
and/or
b) Neotel get it's act together
and/or
c) government gets it's act together
and/or
d) SA gets another undersea cable outta here
and/or .... your opinion please ...


So take my advise, never leave any important online work for the last couple of days of any month. The situation is not going to get any better anytime soon. Get those online payments made before the 29th of the month. You will remain a whole lot saner that way.
