    Default Cellc 3G - How is the new service?

    Cellc has recently extended its coverage to the R/Bay area , I am contemplating signing up. How many forumites are currently using the service and how to you rate the service levels so far?

    Well, my first week was fine. That was before they dropped coverage in my area and until today I do not have an answer why.

    Black speedstick for sale. 59Gig available. Interested?

    notice how all the complainers have less than 10 forum posts

    Look I tried the new network last month. I needed to get a highspeed data connection to play games (which happens to be one of the most strenous things you can do to a connection as you need a good speed, latency and also stabilty so you don't lag out) as I don't have adsl access at my new place.

    I had used MTN/Vodacom/Iburst/neotel but they all failed, as I exerienced excessive lag and connection cuts.

    My Cell C data bundle is performing very well in Umlazi, Section V (South of Durban in KZN). I use it for gaming on my Xbox 360 and PC and also downloading stuff (oh and psoting random stuf on forums). Alot of people are getting it and not getting signal. My suggestion: Check your coverage on the cell c website. If you covered than try it out but remember thier is a handling fee attached to the bundle. Check the stickies for details. If you want to have recommendations check the following posts:

    http://mybroadband.co.za/vb/showthre...3G-The-Verdict

    But if you can get adsl get it as no wireless connection will ever replace adsl. Check the mweb and afrihost shaped uncapped lines for approximately R215.00


    Edit: Thier also were issues were sims would not work because cell c was not properly configuring them but that was 2 months back right now that's not an issue (seeing as how no one has complained about it recently)

    What does number of posts have to do with a complaint?

    On my (very expensive) MTN 3G connection I run a PS3 game (MAG), Wife plays Pigs, daughter facebooks and what else, and Windows 7 plus all other software updates! Try the CellC dongle and something as simple as email becomes a mission. Supply what you advertise!

    Handling fee only applicable in the first seven days.

    On a realted note.. can we get a prepaid card or something to test the signal out in the area?

    I don't want to commit without seeing good speeds with my own eyes.
