like Flinkflerie said, check the rates 1st, by us pre paid is quite a few cents more per unit, but then you save the R250 +/- service charge, it is like buying a diesel vehicle vs petrol, more expensive to buy but cheaper to run. then it will depend on the distance you travel per month... i'm considering switching over to pre paid to rid myself from the service charge. my electricity is about R300 and then the service charge gets added on. so just like the diesel i have to calculate, R2500 for the box + installation vs how many rands i save per month (-service charge +more expensive unit cast x average units used) up till now i just dont know where i'm going to put the meter box and a quick estimation of my costs reveal that i will not be saving a big bag of dough.
