As I understand it, BB is run through each individual network, via a pipe dedicated to that service, going all the way back to RIM.
I switched off my radio on my BB, had wifi on at home and was on the network, now as you can imagine, the speed is beyond anything that Vodacom could ever offer me.
I was able to browse at lighting speeds.
What I do not understand is how was I able to recive mail, BB messages and everyting else that the BIS service should be giving me.
How can it be working on my WIFI internet at home? Does BIS have a link on the normal internet?
Surely BIS or anything that uses that protocol should not be working?????
Now the next thing, if this does work on the normal internet, it just shows how degraded Vodacom has made this service either intentionally or unintentionally.
I go with intentionally as if the pipe cannot handle the traffic, kick off the abusers or get a bigger pipe.
Really pissed off
