If you are a gamer, you definitely want a broadband connection. I’ve been very happy with my 4 Mbps line from Telkom, but it is a costly exercise that means I spend at the least a grand a month for the line and 10Gb of traffic. Thus I’ve been joining everyone in eager anticipation for rival Neotel’s option.
MyBroadband broke the news yesteday: Neotel’s NeoConnect Prime will give consumers 2.4 Mbps through its own device – for the total cost of R 599.00 per month. With this deal you get 10gb of bandwidth, 1000 free on-net voice minuted and 50 free SMS per month. Best of all, there is no setup fee or long-term contract.
But the real reason to get it is this is the only other package next to Telkom’s that offers 7c per megabyte after you go over your limit. Everyone else will charge you a lot more (see the article for a table breaking this down). This means that as long as you manage your finances, you won’t really hit any cap. I’ve been doing this using an Imaginet account with my ADSL and it is sheer bliss. Now Neotel makes that possible for around half the monthly price.
Will it be any good for games, though?
