I've put this query in the Cell C section of the forum, as it relates to a SIM of theirs I bought today for testing. However, it could equally relate to VC, 8ta or MTN.
What I'd like to know is, based on the speeds below, does the Host Server default automatically to Cell C server if I'm using a Cell C SIM ? How do you select which host server you want to connect to, or is it not optional ?
The thing is, if wanting to conserve some data, one might want to only connect at the speed I got for MWEB, and not about double that for Cell C.
