This is unacceptable. We ask that ICASA step in and force 8ta/telkom mobile to deliver, or we want to be refunded for all data usage since 01/01/2013 when we started experiencing problems.

On 26/09/2011 8ta had the best speeds in the country, now 19 months later, they have the worst...

To back up these allegations follow the following links:!/page2

There are 3 links, i have many more that i can share.

Also go to Facebook, on 8ta page, as well as Telkom mobile page there are 100's if not 1000's of complaints.

Sign the petitions so we can get what we pay for. Or refund us and close your doors!!


We the consumers,

Demand that you 8ta and Telkom Mobile give us the mobile broadband data speeds as per international standards.

If you can not meet our demands, we request that ICASA cancel your licenses and you refund us what we have paid you for services that we have not received.
