8ta / Late delivery, incorrect account, bad service

1 South Africa Review updated:
Contact information:

I recently ordered/purchased the 10Gig promo that 8ta was offering:

Firstly; 8ta failed to deliver on the sim card (as promised) on time(5 days late).

8ta then proceeded to block my usage prematurely when my they suspended my Internet when my account showed that they were in fact in error.
( Included data:10 GB
GPRS: 2 MB remaining 3070 MB used. )

When trying to resolve this error:
There "helplines" listed under "value added services" on there website are constantly engaged (even though they are supposedly listed as 24 hour services).
When you finally manage to get through, follow the voice prompts and then directed to wait for a call centre operator you have to wait an additional 28 minutes until you give up...

8ta's service is obviously lacking in many regards.

    My contract has expired, and I sended through a request to cancel my account. The email for cancellation was read on 08-11-2013, but on 18-12-2013 when I phoned to find out when the debit order will be stopped, there was still no record on the system of my request to cancel the contract.
