on Saturday (07/05/2016 @ 19:07:36) i mad payment of R340 (R200 cash and R140 on my card)
i was told by the cashier it will be activated in 2 hours or so, but being Saturday evening i gave it till Sunday.

i spend in total 3 hrs 44 mins 22 secs on the phone begging for someone to open my line for me. at one stage i waited for an hour on the line only to be told that they are off line.
i was also told that after a week after i made payment they could not see my payment.
after talking to lady in subscriber collection i was also told that this would not have happened if i made my payment on time. that was just the cherry on top.
so after i spoke to Olva on Saturday morning and she directed me to the right channel, only then was my problem sorted.
I want to know,
1. why does it take them a week to see my payment on there system
2. why after paying do i still have to 8 days for my dongle to be connected
3. i want the manager of that dept subscriber collections to apologize to me for telling that i have pay on time otherwise all this was not necessary.
(will take a hiding if i should have waited for 2 days yes, but not 8 days)
4. i want to know how are they going to compensate me for this lost of data ( data lost from 07/05/2016 till 14/05/2016) i paid for that and time wasted on the phone trying to get my emails up and running.

i also would like to add that my wife lost a possible job opportunity to work abroad due to me not having the use of the internet from laptop.

i'll await a speedily reply

i hope that something will come from this
