Thread: 13.69 Mb/s through speedtest.net

  1. #1

    Default 13.69 Mb/s through speedtest.net

    Has vodacom given us free upgrades during the trial?

    tested this a couple of times and the speed seems to be constant.

    What device are you using?
    62.15% of South Africans voted in favour of the Nkandla compound and e-tolls.

    Wow...that is very cool. But I want to know the same answer as morkhans. What device? We have not yet started issuing devices capable of those speeds. The fastest modem we have @ the mo is 7.2mbps and for those modems to reach thos speeds you need a advanced bundle as Vodacom have not yet migrated clients to the 7.2 profile as default?

    B970 is capable of 7.2 only by default. Not sure if this is pumped up with a firmware update. Have you dont any updates on it?

    I wonder why the big difference?

    Never been this fast before, so not sure. Can't see the point of 13 MB/s with what vodacom charges for its bandwidth though. Rather have good pings

    Makes you wonder though, do the hardware manufactures throttle their devices to make us buy a new one every time there is an upgrade to the network, or are the devices genuinely only capable of the advertised speeds.

    Those tests must be costing you a fortune.
