Broadband competition is still healthy in the local market: MTN recently announced price cuts and now iBurst is giving away free data.
The comapny will give away 500Mb of free data to every subscriber who regularly connects to the wireless broadband provider's network via the iBurst Dashboard Version 2 during October 2007.
The free data will be credited to qualifying subscribers' accounts at the beginning of November 2007. The remainder of the free data unused at the end of November will be carried over for one month subject to a maximum of the normal data carryover limit.
iBurst's Dashboard version 2 graphically presents network connectivity information in a way that is easy to read. The revamped interface improves on the original version and allows subscribers to monitor their monthly data usage, check upload and download speeds as well as monitor their signal strength, amongst other features.
The iBurst dashboard can be downloaded free of charge from www.iburst.co.za and is also available on the latest iBurst installation CD (released 01 April 2007). The iBurst dashboard is compatible with Windows 2000 and XP for all iBurst modems. For desktop modems, the connection has to be made via the USB port.
