Free bandwidth for iBurst users


iBurst is giving away a total of 4.06Tb of free data to 8 500 iBurst subscribers who regularly connected to the iBurst network during October using iBurst Dashboard Version 2. The free data has already been credited to all qualifying subscribers’ accounts. 

“No other South African broadband operator can claim to have given away 500Mb of data per subscriber to almost one-fifth of its subscriber base. This is about showing our commitment to the customer in a tangible way,” says Thami Mtshali, CEO of iBurst.
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 and is also available on the latest iBurst installation CD released in April 2007. The iBurst dashboard is compatible with Windows 2000 and XP for all iBurst modems.
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.
