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 JANUARY 2013
Tariff A @R0.02/MB: Monday-Friday: 08h00-23h59
Tariff B @ R0.01/MB : Monday-Friday: 00h00-07h59, as well as Saturdays and Sundays
Take note that the relevant tariff is determined by the day and time the download process was completed.
•Example 1: If you start downloading a file of 3 MB at 16:55 on Monday and the download is completed at 17:10 (Monday), the tariff for Monday 17:10 will apply.
•Example 2: If the same file is downloaded from Monday 07:55 to Monday 08:10, the tariff for Monday 08:10 will apply.
