Yep, let me add my moan about how bad VC 3G has gotten.
Highveld, Centurion, 4 bars of HSDPA uselessness - even at this time of the morning.
Maybe shaped to shyte because ssh sessions are almost impossible, but that's not all, because other sites are also stuffed, this page took over 15 minutes to load and the speedtest from mybroadband is still not there.
Saddest is that I can no longer work from home, so it really defeats the purpose of having the connection.
Gonna have to try weasel out of this contract and get copper . . . or if I could just get fiber to the home, please anyone ??
FWIW, I have had some "luck" by disconnecting and re-connecting, seems you get better throughput "initially", but then slide down to buggerall the longer you stay connected.
Good luck to us all :-((
