Would also like to know where you can get 10 Mbps, Unlimited Data, Cable/ADSL for P900 per month...and P18 for a 500ml beer in a restaurant, more like P40.

Botswana can be a good place to be if the price cannot be converted to US $. And the salary increase like south-Africa. Poverty can dissapear in a day. May God Bless the country/people and rain in the land. People are very nice and respectful.Wow another paradise on earth. And I like how Batswana changed and gave their lives to christ. This alone will make difference.

please let me know where I get 10mbits of internet for P900 a month!
I'm paying over P2000 for 2 Mbits and I actually get less then 1mbits and that only if it actually is working (down every day at least 2x for at least 10 min)
