I wanted to do this for a while, seeing that the new LHG 5 is coming to South Africa soon I decided to get it done.

For backbone link I wouldn't consider the LHG 5 because of the slower ethernet speeds, but then again if it won't be a major backbone link this could be the cheaper solution.
The big differance is the price, the LHG5 is a good alternative to the sxts.
@necrolyte I didn't put the netbox or basebox in the comparison as they are both in a different league. They have lvl4 licence and can be uses on sectors or on a dish for a backbone link.
