The recently released OECD Broadband Statistics indicates that local broadband growth is nowhere near where it should be.

South Africa currently has around 350 000 broadband subscribers which translates into a local broadband penetration rate of just over 0.7%. The OECD Broadband Penetration rate is currently 15.5%, over 2200% higher than South Africa’s figure.

Wonder why South Africa’s broadband uptake is so low compared to the rest of the word except the obvious high price of connectivity for ADSL?

  • Did some ADSL pricing research becuase our wireless internet was a bit unsteady.
  • Telkom called us (thanks Giovanni) and said we will be called re: an installation date.
  • It is now two weeks later and Telkom have not called us again.

Why your Web AddiCT thinks the broadband uptake is slow: The only broadband supplier in South Africa’s service resembles a sloth with amnesia.
