I will be monitoring my connection now.
I'm connected with 3G now and seems much better than the weekend.
So lets hope the problem was resolved. I would love to know what was wrong though.
Modem: Nexus 7 3G | Data: 8ta | Location: Parow East (Work 9am-5pm) & Brackenfell (Home)
My Vodacom 3G connection seems very slow today.
My test results:
Download Speed: 0.5Mb/s
Upload Speed: 0.32Mb/s
Download Speed: 4566 kbps (570.8 KB/sec transfer rate)
Upload Speed: 1149 kbps (143.6 KB/sec transfer rate)
Why is speed.vodacom showing very fast connection, and speedtest/reality is slow?
Is the problem with the connection from vodacom to the world?
My connection is reeeaaallyy slow today. Is there something wrong with the vodacom towers in Pierre van Ryneveld?
This is my speedtest result:
I'm trying to download a 6MB file and it says it's going to take 2 hours. I've phoned 155 but they can't help me. My reference number is S2-Y8BBS-S9GD.
VMC says my connection is good and it's using HSDPA.
added: Vodacom speedtest result
download speed: 266 kbps
upload speed: 6 kbps

It looks like this is still ongoing as I am still unable to do internation browsing.
Does anyone now if this has effect others, i.e DSL, MTN, iBurst?
International browsing is extremely slow/non existent. Local is only working at the moment. In the Edenvale area. Is anyone experiencing this?

yes, exact same problem since the weekend - 3g very erratic - sometimes connects to sites, sometime just hangs - sometimes can get to g0ogle.co.za and sometimes doesn't - is there anything we can do?
edit: ok just tried to call and after going through all the prompts end up with due to unforseen circumstances call centre is closed???

Ironic - posting from an MTN SIM LMAO!!!!!!!!
Same issue - SLOWWWWWW or no response from the site - most sites. SA sites seem ok - i guess...
I am in Midrand. Full signal (5 bars) but not much data throughput... Really bad international surfing!!
