Suddenly my speed dropped from 40kbps to 10, ad lo and behold 3 second latency trying to play diablo 3!!
Mine has been that slow since the end of February, I never even notice my 3GB being reset anymore :[[[
I'm still happy with this...except for a couple of days where it did get really slow, my throttled speed is fine...and I only get 2 bars on my signal (23%)
What is the average download speed for the MTN Lite uncapped (the one that is R299 per month) after you get throttled?
My advice is log a support ticket with 1555 or 808. Logged mine on thursday I'll let you know if there has been any response next week.
To put 128kbps into download speed, it'll be roughly (128/8) 16 kB per second. . . Sadly, not impressive at all!
First it was more than 256kbps download speed, around 360kbps IIRC.
Then they seem to have changed the throttling around March/April, and it was about 256kpbs down.
Then they seem to have changed the throttling again a few days ago, and now it's at a max 128kpbs down (and, I would guess, another max 128kbps up). I get 52MB/hour, which is an average 115.1 kb/s or 14.4 kB/s. To top things off, the download rate is very bursty.
I am hoping it's a temporary glitch...
How do we get MTN to comment here? I don't game or youtube, just web and email and I'm currently running at 30kps (I kid you not) - 0.003Mbps on the MYBroadband Speed Test. I could not have reached my cap, and even if I had, there is no way I should be throttled down that slow.
