R19/month for 10GB web hosting... could it be?

Now, THIS should shakeup the South African hosting market. R19/month hosting. 10GB traffic served. 1 x SQL database. Phew. Welcome to the online offering from Ample Hosting.



The now-curious me has to ask:

1. How "shared" is this service?
2. Are they reselling cheap American hosting in SA (very clever)?
3. If something like this takes off - how will it affect IS, Mweb etc?

It comes with some fairly hefty SLA's.
