What is the Broadband Bible?


It’s a catalog of all the major ADSL offers and deals in South Africa. It allows you to choose the one that best matches your needs, with full confi-
dence that you are getting the best deal rather than the most-advertised deal.

The Broadband Bible is released monthly, updated with the latest offerings, prices, and specials from broadband ISPs.

We are completely independent and unbiased in the way we rank and portray the ADSL offers. ISPs do not pay us to be listed, although there are
optional fees for certain features for those ISPs who want to offer more information to the readers. This does not affect the Top 10 lists in any way.

The Broadband Bible is free to download and distribute.

Note: This is the first public edition, so please treat it as a beta release. We welcome comments and criticisms at info@thebroadbandbible.co.za.

Disclaimer: All information in The Broadband Bible is checked and re-checked for accuracy. Even so, we cannot be held responsible for any
errors or omissions, or for any damages to any party caused by any errors or omissions. Should you spot an error or something that is not cur-
rent, please notify us at info@thebroadbandbible.co.za, and we’ll investigate and correct as needed.

How to get connected?


Step 1: Use The Broadband Bible to choose the line speed, ISP, and package that suits your needs.

Step 2: If your package does not include an ADSL line, and you do not already have one , you need to have one installed. An ADSL line is an up-
grade to a regular land line, so you need to get one of those first. Then upgrade to an ADSL line of the right speed. Go to https://secure1.telkom.
co.za/edsl/edslff or call 10215.

Step 3: If your ISP does not provide you with an ADSL router, you will need to buy one.

Step 4: Sign up for the ISP package of your choice. Please be sure to tell the ISP you found them in The Broadband Bible!

Glossary
Broadband Loosely used to describe high-speed, always-on Internet access, generally 384kbps or faster .

ADSL (Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Line) A method for moving data at high speeds over normal phone lines. An ADSL circuit is much faster
than a dial-up phone connection, and the wires coming into the subscriber’s premises are the same (copper) wires used for regular phone serv-
ice.

ISP (Internet Service Provider) A company that offers its customers access to the Internet, charging either a monthly fee or a per-gigabyte fee or
both.

Shaped If internet access is shaped, some packets of data are delayed by the ISP so that other (more important) packets of data can get through
Page


faster. The ISP uses shaping to optimize the use of their network, generally by prioritising basic web browsing over downloading and other high-
intensity usage. The exact nature of the prioritisation may vary from provider to provider.

Unshaped If internet access is unshaped, all data packets are treated the same, regardless of application. In practice, this should mean the
downloading is faster in peak times, since data packets related to downloading files would not be delayed to let through gaming or browsing
packets.

Cap (bandwidth cap) Refers to an ISP limiting usage of the connection. Generally measured in gigabytes per month.

Uncapped An uncapped ISP plan places no limits on the amount of data downloaded (or uploaded) per month.

Topup An extra charge (generally per gigabyte of data transferred) for additional internet access once the cap has been used up for the month.

Gig (gigabyte) A billion bytes, or a million kilobytes, or a thousand megabytes.

Bandwidth A term used to describe how much data you can send through a connection to the Net. The greater the bandwidth, the faster the
rate of data transmission.

Line speeds ADSL lines come in three speeds: 384 kbps, 512 kbps, and 1024 kbps (which can be up to 4 Mbps). These speeds are a function of
the line provided by Telkom rather than the ISP. Of course, faster lines mean more bandwidth, which means that ISP packages for faster lines are
generally more expensive, especially for uncapped access.

Kbps (kilobits per second) A measure of how fast data is transferred.

Mbps (megabits per second) 1000 kbps.

Contention ratio The number of people using the ISP’s bandwidth that is nominally allocated to a single user. Since you are not using all of your
bandwidth all of the time, it does not make sense for the ISP to pay for all your international bandwidth all of the time either – so they share it
out with other users. The higher the contention ratio, the greater the number of users that may be trying to use the actual bandwidth at any one
time and, therefore, the lower the effective speed, especially at peak times.

Local-only traffic Since the internet is global, for most people most of their traffic will be international (i.e. looking at or downloading some-
thing stored on a computer in another country). International bandwidth is expensive, which has led ISP’s to offer local-only options, meaning
that you will only be able to access the small part of the internet located in South Africa. This may be fine is you only use email from your compa-
ny’s server, for example. It is generally used by people who move large files between computers in South Africa.

Modem / router The router is the device that send and receives packets of data to and from the internet. It’s the box that plugs into your phone
jack so you can access the internet.
Page


Wireless ADSL comes in via your copper phone cables to you router. However, some ADSL routers have the option of then transferring the data
to your computer(s) wirelessly, so you don’t have to plug your computer into the router. Most newer laptops and several newer desktops have
the ability to receive this wireless data built-in.

WiFi The most popular wireless protocols. Most wireless routers (and most laptops and desktops with wireless built-in) will work with the WiFi
protocols without any additional hardware or software.

Satellite This refers to the transmission of data (by the ISP, in the background) via satellite rather than via terrestrial cabling. Generally, this is
cheaper but has greater delays, since the signal has to be sent thousands of kilometres into space and back before it reaches you.

Fibre This refers to the transmission of data (by the ISP, in the background) via fibre-optic cable rather than via copper cabling or satellite. Gener-
ally, this is more expensive but has the smallest delays, since fibre allows the fastest effective data transmission.

A NOTE TO THE ISPs:

Please help us provide the South African Internet user with the most comprehensive guide to ADSL plans possible.

Non-listed ISPs

If you represent an ISP that is not listed in The Broadband Bible, please submit your details to us so we can include you as soon as possible (there is
no charge for being included in The Broadband Bible). This is the process:

1. Download the Excel spreadsheet from our website that lays out how you should submit your plan details to us. Please only use one sheet, with as
many columns as is necessary. No plans without prices will be published.

2. Email the spreadsheet to us at info@thebroadbandbible.co.za.

3. Please ensure we have the contact details of the right person at your organisation, should we need to contact you with any questions. You can
email those details to us at the above address.

Listed ISPs

If your plans are already listed in The Broadband Bible, and you would like to change or add some plans, please follow this process:

1. Download the Excel spreadsheet from our website, and fill in the required information. You must include information for ALL your plans, each
time you make a change to any, so we suggest you save the spreadsheet and amend as required. We are specifically interested in the Shaped/Un-
shaped spec, as well as any “Notes” you think are relevant.

2. Email the spreadsheet to info@thebroadbandbible.co.za. Please ensure we have the contact details of the right person at your organisation,
should we need to contact you with any questions. You can email those details to us at the above address.

A new version of the Bible is released on the first Monday of every month, although paying ISPs will have any changes updated
within 48 hours.

Advertising and Sponsorship


Sponsorship
The Broadband Bible is the definitive source of data on the broadband offerings available in South Africa. It’s a free PDF document, easily
downloadable from our website, and easy to forward, reaching thousands of people every month. It is the most comprehensive, independ-
ent, and credible source of comparative data for ISP customers.

We are looking for one credible, forward-thinking company to sponsor The Broadband Bible.

Sponsorship of the Broadband Bible entitles you to the following:

• Strong brand association with the data-driven credibility and clarity of the Broadband Bible.
• Your company name, logo, and tagline prominently displayed on every page of the PDF (at least 66 pages in total).
• 1 full page of editorial copy and contact details in the PDF.
• Company name, logo, and tagline on the homepage of www.broadbandbible.co.za

Please note this is not simply an offering of adspace, such as in a magazine or online publication.

The Broadband Bible is typically studied rather than skimmed, by enthusiasts and motivated buyers looking for industry data. Because it is a
reference work, readers typically return to the document multiple times and spend much longer on each page than would be the case with a
magazine or newspaper article.

And because the sponsor appears on all (minimum) 66 pages, plus the full-page editorial, plus the website, you get a huge amount of adver-
tising bang for the sponsorship buck.

Note also that sponsorship cannot be allowed to affect the integrity of the content in the Broadband Bible.

Jan 2010 - June 2010: R12,500 per month, payable for 6 months in advance
July 2010 - December 2010: R14, 500 per month, payable for 6 months in advance

Please contact Eve Dmochowska at eved@thebuyersbible.co.za for further information.

Only one sponsor will be accommodated at a time.

Advertising and Sponsorship


ISP Paid Listings
To preserve our credibility as the definitive guide on ADSL pricing in South Africa, all ISPs are listed regardless of whether they choose to take
out a premium listing or not.

ISP are, however, encouraged to take a Premium ISP Listing. This includes:
• A logo on the ISP’s page in The Broadband Bible
• A 50 word message from the ISP on their value proposition
• One ad space on the ISPs page, which can be used for a discount coupon or an ad
• A three line description for any ADSL plan that appears in the “Who’s the cheapest?” tables (This is useful if you want to point out that you
might not be the cheapest, but you are the fastest, etc)

Overall, the message you are sending to our readers is one of credibility.

Note that a Premium Listing cannot be allowed to affect the integrity of the content in the Broadband Bible.

R 650 per month, by debit order. No contract.


Please contact Eve Dmochowska at eved@thebuyersbible.co.za for further information.

Ad Blocks
There are ad blocks on every ISP page. These can be bought in bundles of 4 by any Souh African business with an online presence.
Ad blocks are placed randomly throughout the document, specific spots cannot be reserved.

R 600 for 4 ad blocks, for 30 days. Payable in advance.


Please contact Eve Dmochowska at eved@thebuyersbible.co.za for further information.
