Computers, Internet and DSTV

Internet connection in McGregor can be by cell phone, DSL over the the Telkom lines or wireless access via the Breedenet tower.

Few people acheive a satisfactory connection with the former as cell phone reception in the village is poor. DSL works for many, though some say the lines from McGregor are over-subscribed. The Breedenet tower provides a fast, reliable connection and is the best option, I would say: but then, I'm their local agent :-)
