    Anyway, the nice 8ta rep has said they will look into your case. Good luck.
    Thanks man, I really really really hope they will...because 3 months is waste of money when they doing nothing.

    When I first got Vodacom, speeds were just 1mbps for many years - athen BANG they went down to almost nothing. I cancelled many contracts.

    When the Cell C special was launched, I was getting 50ms pings and 3mbps constantly for 4 months - then BANG it went to nothing and sold the SIM.

    Now I have the 8ta special and got 90ms pings and 2mpbs for about 6 months and BANG - it's consistently 10 x slower

    It seems horrible speeds just follow my around.
    Jägermeiʃter can fix that!

    Really pathetic. Technicians said a tower will go up in three months or so... but that does not help me now I've already paid for the data. Had no intention in being an investor for their future infrastrcture development; I care about the here and now!!
    Cape Town pilot project?? I dont care, provide the service muppets!

    My pings are terrible! With a CellC sim in the same router my pings are sub 40 and my speeds up to three times faster. I'm really hoping that 8ta can sort this out.

    Craighall Park, Uniterm 11dbi rooftop antenna, TP-Link router TL-MR3420, Icon 505 modem.

    Not good at all - its been going downhill for me over the last few weeks. I used to get at least 2mbps down and 1.5 up.

    I have a ticket open and a techie came to visit last week - his comment was "your signal fluctuates a lot". Hopefully some propeller-head somewhere inside 8ta can do some magic and bring me my throughput back.
