Bandwidth to Burn: November

Every month Telkom Do Gaming publishes an article which highlights the best downloads for that month.

Telkom gives its customers 10 GB's free for every one GB of blended (international and local) bandwidth. This means, for example, that a Telkom customer with a three GB cap will get 30GB local bandwidth for free.

Using all the local bandwidth on gaming media is obviously the best way gamers would want to spend it.

This month's downloads include the PC demo for Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising and the demo for Avatar: The Game, amidst the Unreal Development Kit and a huge amount of media.
