I have been having very inconsistent speeds with my 4mb uncapped account from Mweb (Line is rented from Telkom). Every time I call Telkom to query this, they always log a fault and it takes about 2 - 4 days before I receive an sms stating that my fault has been restored and as far as I know all they do is reset my ports. This seems to fix the speed issues for about 1 - 2 days and then the slow speeds, high pings, etc come back.
I mainly use my internet for online gaming and downloading. This problem has been going on for months, I'm not sure if I should get a new router (I currently use the Telkom Mega 105WR) or if I should change ISP. I don't know if there is an actual problem with my line or if it's congestion problems at the exchange but I get inconsistant speeds throughout most of my day even late at night/early in the morning.
When I run a Speed Test I get:
Download Speed: 287 kbps (35.9 KB/sec transfer rate)
Upload Speed: 404 kbps (50.5 KB/sec transfer rate)
Latency: 86 ms

Anything else you might need just ask, I don't know much about Line Attenuation or SNR Margins so if you do need those figures, please just tell me what to do or where to go. Thanks very much in advance.
