I spent the longer part of my time in Joburg looking for good, reliable internet. I've tried dozens of internetcafés, paying loads for mediocre or worse service... I stayed with a friend in Sandton, so I know nothing of this backpackers.
If you are in Johannesburg and need some delicous and stable internet, go to the Steers restaurant in the Fourways Mall (google it). It's free, and you can use it for ten hours in a row. It's a nice gesture of you, as a user, to buy something at the restaurant, but the key is to be nice to them. That's all from me, enjoy (even if you're not in the area, and need some hours of stable internet, it's worth moving cross-city for this). The mall is also generally good for anything you'd need to buy on your journey. :)
