Just did a speed test on my iBurst... locally only.
Midrand - Neology: download 0.52Mbps, upload 0.28Mbps, ping 103ms
London - TranceFM: download 0.37Mbps, upload 0.18Mbps, ping 303ms
Days like today that I'm thankful I gave notice and only have 1 month of this to go.
Local (JHB): download 0.16Mbps, upload 0.21Mbps, ping 94ms
London: download 0.31Mbps, upload 0.12Mbps, ping 286ms
New York: download 0.18Mbps, upload 0.10Mbps, ping 366ms
I have been an iBurst customer for a couple of years and their service has been tremendous on their helpline, but I am so frustrated these days with the incredibly slow download speed. It is a pain trying to read newspapers - to turn a page takes ages.
What is going on?
Cape Town: Mweb: download 0.60Mbps, upload 0.25Mbps, ping 73ms
Midrand - Neology: download 0.65Mbps, upload 0.22Mbps, ping 109ms
London - Namesco: download 0.57Mbps, uploads 0.18Mbps, ping 471ms

Way way waaaaaaaaay better than this morning.
But still running at half the speed it used to be. Please iBurst, make a plan with the overloaded towers.
We pay for "up to 2Mbps", but since release of the new packages, speeds have halved. Will you cut our monthly payments in half because of half the speed? No, though not........
This is what I'm getting with a 2Mbps modem

Some times the internet is so slow, it would be faster to just fly to Google's headquarters and ask them this $h1t in person.!
