iBurst - Internet Access
Fast Mobile Broadband


Broadband Wireless Fast Internet Access in South Africa

iBurst has arrived in South Africa

We have come a long way since the beginning of dialup connectivity with our 300bps
connection(0.375k/sec) - current broadband connections in South Africa are up to 1MB/s
with iBurst or 512k with ADSL. In the UK 8MB/s ADSL is the maximum, France, 20MB/s
with ADSL2+ and South Korea even faster!

The internet is constructed out of a vast interconnecting network of data pipes. The main
connections are like wide rivers, carrying lots of information, these divide up into smaller
rivers and again smaller to millions of destinations and billions of people around the world.

The future holds faster connections allowing on demand movies, programs and any
convievable content service. A TV quality broadcast requires 4MB/s. However, faster
connections cannot guarantee you improved performance. If there is a bandwidth drought,
there is no water to fill the riverbed. So if the server on the other side cannot provide you
with the information fast enough, it doesn't matter how fast your connection is.

The South African broadband situation

South Africa is inhibited from this high permforance broadband connectivity with high
costs from the incumbent telco monopoly, Telkom. Future growth and large scale job
opportunities can be acheived in the call center and high tech arena with deregulation
of the telco industry, reducing costs and making South Africa more competitive. High
speed cheap broadband will drive growth in South Africa, but will this ever happen?

iBurst broadband wireless internet is now available in South Africa, introducing more
competition. Telkom responded by reducing ADSL line prices by about 15%. iBurst is
a great alternative to the Telkom monopoly.

New ADSL services that are available in South Africa is an unlimited
ADSL service
with 5 static IP addresses which is a great alternative to 64k Diginet leased lines.
