Having spoken to other Africans, it's my opinion that they suffer much
more than South African ISP's for the same (but more intense) reasons -
William - how about getting input from the AfrISPA folks from non SA

I could have used this five years ago when setting up what by SA
standards would have been a medium ISP, but probably a small ISP by
North American standards.

While we were 'multihomed' we got little of the benefit - eventually I
just hid everything behing IP masquarading, but it was a real pain and
hindered our growth to a large extent - and I've seen the same occuring
to people time again since.
