Thanks to the University's collaboration with SANREN and the implementation of the new Fortigate firewall, users on campus can now look forward to lower internet rates and faster, more stable internet. Both these projects were necessary if one takes into consideration that the university's bandwidth usage doubled each year for the past 8 years. In spite of the increase in usage, rates were never increased.
Rates for internet usage from 1 April 2012:
Tariff A @ R0.02: Monday-Friday: 08h00-23h59
Tariff B @ R0.01 : Monday-Friday: 00h00-07h59, as well as Saturdays and Sundays
The relevant tariff is determined by the day and time the download process was completed.
