    One final question is; does Axxess cover the installaion and the line rental? I.e theres no addtional extras needed from Telkom?
    Telkom must install your line, but rent your ADSL line through Axxess. It is just cheaper. You pay Axxess for the ADSL line and Axxess pays it over to Telkom.

    But as Carbon ZA said, you still need a phone line as well. Even if you never make a phone call. You can only pay Telkom directly for this and you cannot pay a third party like Axxess for this. Montly rental is R150 (plus minus).

    Hopefully we will get Naked ADSL in the near future.

    LOL, my first thought after seeing "Naked ADSL" was a ADSL line specially develop for porn!

    They must change the name, please.

    I've finally got the internet up and running. Getting about a 4mb connection, so can't complain!
    One issue i do have is i can't buy microsoft points. It comes up with error 'Can't authorise the selected payment option. Please select a different payment option or add a new one.' I am using my UK debit card which has always been on the account (and ive used no problem in SA the past 2-3 months at ATMs).
    Is this a problem because the system can see im in SA? I thought using my UK card would mean there's no issues as my xbox account is obviously set up as UK. Or is this a bank issue?? (seems unlikely as it works for everything else). Incidentally ive been able to download free game updattes no problem.
    Are there any solutions? Will SA MS point cards work? Or will i have to purchase UK ones?
    Thanks for the help in advance!

    As far as I know SA and UK points/subs work fine together. You can also check out www.gamepointsnow.com

    I use them for every sub/points purchase.

    Thank you very much! Cheaper than buying from the marketplace as well.

    Welcome to the forum Ji-Unit, now that you have your interwebs sorted and are ready to game, what games do you play online?

    Mostly Battlefield 3 (I hammered it back in the UK, but haven't been on in almost 3 months due to no internet connection!).
    I've got Forza but i haven't been on for months. I play ME3 online as well. The rest of my games such as Skyrim and Witcher are just single player games. My gamertag is Kylie84
