I have kept sending engineers to you
and thinking it has been done, when I followed up with the engineers
that I sent. They informed that there are no more ADSL Ports in your
Area. Telkom has been informed and they are in the process of installing
more ports.

I have put you on the list for the first cancelled port, but until the
new ports get installed there will be no way that we can get the adsl
service delivered to you.

That was part of an email our awesome ADSL provider sent Your Web AddiCT(s); Ok sure, Telkom – Keeps you waitng, if your not on hold to speak to their operators you need to wait until all the ADSL ports in your area have been depleted for them to consider adding new ports.

This makes no sense to me. If business is about supply and demand and cleary the demand for ADSL is on an all time high and will continue until everyone has broadband. Why would Telkom allow there over-priced ADSL not to be available where it is most needed?

There could be two answers to this question:

  1. Telkom have no competition and have no need to improve their service.
  2. Employing more people in a country with an extremely high unemployment rate is not as important as making multi-billion Rand profit.

Karma is a strange thing. Make 6 billion in profit + offer k*k service = Losing R2 Billion lawsuit
