Vodacom recently announced that it will be throttling Blackberry BIS users who use more than 100MB per month, effectively stepping them down to 2G speeds.

From slow release schedules, government privacy issues, to digruntled employees shooting off their mouths regarding RIM management, the brand has to improve its […]
