  1. Theresa May has bowed to intense pressure from her own party and named 7 June as the day she will step aside as Conservative leader, drawing her turbulent three-year premiership to a close. Speaking in Downing Street, May said it had been “the honour of my life” to serve as Britain’s second prime minister. Her voice breaking, she said she would leave “with no ill will, but with enormous and enduring gratitude”. The prime minister listed a series of what she said were her government’s achievements, including tackling the deficit, reducing unemployment and boosting funding for mental health. But she admitted: “It is and will alway remain a matter of deep regret to me that I have not been able to deliver Brexit.” Source: https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2019/may/24/theresa-may-steps-down-resigns-tory-leader-conservative-brexit
  2. EU citizens will elect a new European Parliament between May 23 and 26. Voters in each of the bloc's 28 member states vote for their national parties, whose MEPs then form pan-European groups along rough ideological lines to work together in the parliament. With voting underway, polls suggest the centre-right European People's party and centre-left Socialists & Democrats are likely to remain the largest groups in parliament, but are likely to lose their combined majority for the first time.

  3. This article is 2 years old, I wonder if Cyril will push for this now, since he is president now. Link to article: https://city-press.news24.com/News/ramaphosa-wants-entrepreneurship-to-be-a-school-subject-20170317 Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa this week called for entrepreneurship to be included in the basic education school curriculum in order to create greater prosperity. Delivering the opening address of the Global Entrepreneurship Congress at Sandton Convention Centre, Ramaphosa, who made a fortune as a businessman, said the inclusion into the curriculum would ensure success stories such as Johannesburg Mayor Herman Mashaba. Mashaba also got rich from business before turning to politics. “There is much more we can do, entrepreneurship must be part of the school curriculum ... So that young people must from an early age be encouraged to be problem solvers,” Ramaphosa said, adding that the inclusion would also ensure more job creators, rather than job seekers, were developed and that entrepreneurship would be seen a viable career option. Addressing an audience that included delegates from over 170 countries, several countries’ ministers, Small Business Development Minister Lindiwe Zulu, Mashaba and Telkom chairperson Jabu Mabuza as well as hundreds of investors and entrepreneurs, Ramaphosa said even though there wasn’t such a thing as an ideal entrepreneur, all of them still needed the basics to thrive. During the address, Ramaphosa told young entrepreneurs that the event should assist them in eventually signing business contracts with contacts made during the four-day conference. He said digital disruption was the ideal theme because the concept had become the cornerstone of economies worldwide. Jonathan Ortman, president of the Global Entrepreneurship Network and Chairperson of GEC, said the event being hosted in Africa for the first was an overdue development. “It is Africa’s time, one can’t avoid that. Even throughout the world this event has always had a strong participation from Africa especially in the last one held in Moscow in 2012,” Ortman said. The conference included numerous discussions on various aspects on businesses, digital revolution, the lagging behind of laws after technology and accessing “Angel Investors”.

  5. Any business with a concern about efficient and costs effective telecommunications should investigate porting over to a VOIP solution. If you have a reliable internet connection such as ADSL/VDSL, 3G/4G or Fibre, you can get a phone service delivered through your internet connection at a fraction of the cost compared to using a traditional Telkom landline. The most important takeaway from this article is that a VoIP system reduce costs, dramatically. Why will a VoIP system reduce my costs of my Telkom bill? A VoIP service provider does not require its own separate infrastructure like the PSTN of Telkom. Voice calls are simply transmitted over the same networks that power the Internet. This means that the ISP does not have to invest significant capital in laying phone lines to each and every house and business. VoIP is essentially piggybacking on the existing broadband network throughout South Africa. So, voice is treated exactly the same as normal data and media such as text and images on the Internet (like a Whatsapp). Just like sending email and pictures is practically free, voice calls also become extremely cheap. Can I move my telephone number if we change offices? Anyone who has moved a landline from one home to another knows the pain of dealing with Telkom. With VoIP, the phone number is no longer associated with a single device, residence or physical line, instead the VoIP phone number is associated with you and your account. This enables you to take the number with anywhere you go, and you can even use it to link your cell phone to your business or office – it’s a virtual number. Who is the cheapest VoIP provider in South Africa for my business? Skype has three packages For R57 per month you get 100 minutes to any South African mobile or landline number (effectively R 0.57 per minute) For R99 per month you get 400 minutes to any South African mobile or landline number (effectively R 0.24 per minute.) Then for R285 per month you get unlimited calls to any network and landline. Vox Telecom Costs between R234 and R762 per month and calls are charged at R0.46 per minute. (The monthly payment includes money for the calls.) FreshPHONE Zero sign up costs, Zero monthly costs, Zero cancellation costs. The call rates for FreshPHONE is R0.39 per min to Telkom local and national numbers and R0.69 per min to all cellular networks. MWEB Mweb have two VOIP packages a Starter package with 100 minutes at R59 per month, and a Lite package with 250 minutes at R99 per month. (59c per minute and 39.6c per minute respectively) Assuming you want a more business specific setup (multiple staff members or a call center) then a PBX system will be required. The cheapest hosted PBX solutions in South Africa IS (Internet Solutions) Ignite have a hosted PBX solution for R111 per extension (month to month) or R90 per extension (24 month contract) this gives you Ring groups, Voicemail to email, Call waiting (press 1 for sales) the full monty) and then you have to pay the per minute rates for calls you make which is R0.30 to Telkom landline calls and R0.74 to mobile numbers. Euphoria Telecom is R65 – R125 per user(extension) per month depending on features. Then their call rates are R0.34 per min to Telkom landlines and R0.79 per min to all South African mobile networks. Use VoIP for your startup business Launching your own business is not an easy task. Entrepreneurs soon find that their landline is not enough to handle the needs of the business, no matter how small. This is where VoIP comes in handy. VoIP service can provide much-needed features like auto attendant, group voicemail, multi device ring, automatic call routing etc. which normally requires an expensive building specific business line(s) setup with golden numbers and special hunting group landlines.
  6. We want to do some research into the consumer behavior of prepaid users. Where do you buy airtime? Do airtime discounts play a role, would you change providers if they offered a discount?
  7. I am busy looking at something @PDSNET have build which I think will fit perfectly - I'll provide feedback hopefully today.
