maverick: 

All I can say is sorry it's taking a while , much longer than I hopped but Bottom line is that yes new plans are coming and have been for a while , when they are released then we will tell you.
Maverick, I'd like to think that WxC are very aware that your loyal customers staying with WxC is costing us $$$, essentially imho you are pushing the limits of our faith and goodwill [at least in my case]

Pricing isn't the do-all, end-all of everything.  If it was, everyone would be driving a banged up Corolla they bought for $1k.

Support, quality, easy of use all play a part.

Hey Nate. That is a bit harsh isn't it? My banged up Corolla is awesome! ;-)




My views (except when I am looking out their windows) are not those of my employer.

Surely you can get a lada or something for less than that ;-)

Understood, I don't expect WxC to be the least expensive but I do expect them to be competitive on price for my needs. I am highly confident the alternative I am considering has at least the same "Support, quality, easy of use".

What are the [re] joining fees for WxC ?

If you're thinking of 2Talk, it's a nice dream

All my Volvos are even more awesomer and none are banged up.  Cost a bit more than $1k though.  And that is exactly the point.  For such a small country with less than half the population of Cape Town (which is only 1 medium size city), we are so privileged to have so many option except for a short while in the fibre trial areas until the others get their rear in gear.




You can never have enough Volvos!

Just got my new bill, no mention of new plans just a whole bunch of stuff about forthcoming new [x]portal functionality

Are new competitive plans still in the wind or perhaps that has been dropped in favour of enhanced functionality ?
