Chaos Computers Dropping its ISP Service This Month

If you’re a local gamer or technology user, you might have heard of Chaos Computers. And if you’re very familiar with them, you might also know that in addition to running a successful chain store, and maintaining a website with online store, they’ve also acted as an ISP for customers too, with dialup and broadband solutions. This is called ChaosNET.

It was made known to me last month all ready that Chaos Computers is going to drop this service soon. Why I was notified of this, was because I’ve been a ChaosNET customer for nearly five years.

The reason given for the decision to stop this service was that “it didn’t fit in with Chaos’s future plans”.
They say that the last day the service will be up is the 30th of April, 2011; no longer being active as of the 1st of May, 2011. This also means that any email accounts with ChaosNET will become obsolete – this sucks for me because it’s one that I’ve used for some of my most personal stuff, including online banking and so on. So if any others out there use ChaosNET (and it probably wasn’t ever that popular in the first place, otherwise they’d probably keep it going), then make sure to switch to another ISP and/or get another email account somewhere, somehow.

Luckily on the 1st of May, Vodacom’s new 2+2 GB promotion becomes available. Interesting…

What does AAA stand for?

It's not an abbreviation of anything. It just means the best of the best...
