WebAfrica is becoming a tier 1 provider and will soon be testing their infrastructure and they are looking for guinea pigs to try it out and report problems. If you are keen then register by giving them your email address: www.webafrica.co.za/trial and if you’re lucky then you might get chosen and get your login details in the next month or so.
