I've just gone ahead and ordered a 512K ADSL line from Telkom and will hopefully be able to make use of the self install option. Just for the record I'm going to log the entire process down so that we can either see if Telkom sucks or if they actually know what they are doing.
Now the flat that I am staying in previously had ADSL installed so Telkom should be aware of three things.
- The exchange ins ADSL enabled
- I am not too far away for ADSL
- No engineer should need to attend as everything is in place
