    Huawei B525 Band Optimization

    Yes it does. if you want to force Band 1 or B1+B3 aggregation you would need the tool though but B3 and B40 can be forced in the settings :)

    Cool Ideas Fibre ISP - Feedback

    Openserve screwed us all. Once Openserve fibre is in town all other providers run away so we end up with expensive fibre. I would say only 100Mbps on Openserve is actually well priced. 200Mbps then the prices start shooting through the roof which sucks. Well good luck I'm on Supersonic 200Mbps...

    Anybody signed up with Tymebank?

    Swiping does NOT work. SAPO for some reason only do swipes and it gets declined. Tymeguy did say that Tyme bank does not allow for MAG strip swipes even if you enter the pin correctly. My chip on my card has been acting up and sometimes when I insert the card into a speedpoint that does not do...

    Cool Ideas Fibre ISP - Feedback

    @S.Claus You paying R2409 for a 200Mbps line Openserve? @PBCool Everyone talking about expensive IPC and from what I have seen a lot of networks suffering with IPC congestion CISP, Supersonic, Vox are the ones I saw. How expensive is IPC really and have the decreases in price over the years...

    Router Battery Backup

    The smart charger connected to the battery on it's own will work fine but I think once you connect the routers and ONT the constant power they draw will trick the smart charger in thinking the battery is not full and keep on pushing current to it. It will probably get over charged. For this...

    Router Battery Backup

    Maybe some other people that has got more knowledge than me but as far as I know No the battery is not always being used. In these setups that are suggested they work exactly like a UPS except they are 12V all round. With the UPS you have a 12V battery connected to an inverter taking it to 220V...

    Router Battery Backup

    It should. Looks the same as the one suggested except it's in a metal casing.

    Huawei B525 Band Optimization

    The router won't be locked to Telkom network only. The B525 is a LTE-A router that would support both B40+B40 aggregation and B1+B3 aggregation. It only has 2x2 mimo compared to 4x4 mimo of the B618. You can use the huawei band tool to force bands if you want.

    MTN SuperSonic Feedback

    Agree but I also think people are over reacting on the clawback. First the trial is obligation free and it states that in the terms so Supersonic is wrong by charging anyone who cancels during the trial. Secondly the clawback of 24months is not nice a 6months clawback would have been a better...

    Anybody signed up with Tymebank?

    The first transaction HAS to be insert with pin but since you said it you tried maybe the card is not linked like it should because of what happened before.

    Router Battery Backup

    Best solution. I was looking at the same setup but was going to build it manually with a 12v charger connected to a dc to dc step down connected to the battery to keep it charged. Then a backup battery switch module that will switch to battery once the 12v charger goes off. Would work but...
