SA Broadband Value for Money Comparison

I was interested to see how the Amobia and Frogfoot products compare to the rest of the SA consumer Internet market so we did some research and drew up a spreadsheet. I wanted to see how the Frogfoot Wifi “neighbourhood sharing” model would compare. The idea is that traffic gets aggregated to a shared Internet connection so all the users share the cost of the line which brings the overall cost down. I also wanted to see how Amobia’s Wireless Broadband compared to the ADSL, 3G/HSDPA and iBurp services.

Note: I compared “all inclusive” services, connection and traffic.

Pick your format.. jpg, pdf, ods (source).




Hmm.. seems WordPress does not like .ods uploads, I’ll just gzip it.

ps. We updated the Amobia website, it now has a Javascript calculator for business VPN services. The Amobia consumer services have been bumped up in speed.

  1. Hi,

    I visited Amobia in June 2007 @ their Newlands offices. They were still new, but were willing to help me. I was still tied up with a Iburst issue and could not have two ISP. I was in touch with them all the time and they gave me great advise although I was not a client. Last month I ended the Iburst account, and paid my R1000.00 deposit. The same day the team was ready to install my hardware.
    In no time I was online. I personally feel this company will go far, excellent price and good coverage.
