Are you serious? You can:
1. Either pay like a normal person
or
2. Go to hackforums and look elsewhere because we wont contribute to that ;)

Hold on, im shedding a tear....
...rubs eye...
wait, nvm. was just an eyelash

Just like havoks answer which is probably better than mines. Look for an area with free wifi like this one:

Free Internet service is hard to come by in ZA...

Even the paid stuff is less than desirable. 10USD for a Gig?! Fok that!

KAK!! Daar is meer as een manier om 'n kat boetie vel eh?

Project Isizwe is a good start:

A long range antenna to connect to a remote *Free* hotspot is something else to look at depending on your location. Anything past about 5K is going to require specialized equipment on BOTH ends of the connection. Just 'listening' really hard will only get you so far.

Now as far as satellite internet goes...easy to get equipment, poor user authentication mechanisms, huge geographical service area...Shame on you...;) Aikona eh?

Other than that, your best bet is going to be finding a provider who "Zero-rates" a significant portion of the services you are most interested in. ZA is known to have some decent mobile plans out there that give you all the Wiki and Twitter you can handle.

I know it's quiet but do we really need threads like this.

A) Hall of shame (flame them them there)

B) Moderate first post's of new peeps so they can be disappeared before birth.

Benefit of the doubt Mmwwaaa. Sometimes English is the 2nd or 3rd language and there is a language translation issue.
Though I did address this a bit in the other post posted before I saw this post.

Personally, I think getting any wifi at all in ZA can be pretty tough, depending on where you are located. One of our forum friends lives there now, and I know at one point it was like 5kbps. 5 not 50 or 500. Remind you of dialup? ;-)

Fair call :) Still a think first post's should be moderated before going public. We have the people/mods to do so.. Especially these days :P

I a one to google your handle for a wee bit of insight..

Pretty obvious who's who once you dig a bit ;)
