    Impressive but you won't get near that in my area.

    Clarity gained. After a few iffy downloads at slow and erratic speeds; finally a clean download at between 3 and 4 MB/s relating to a test speed of 28 Mbps. So it's internet wobbles, not my rig. :)

    Abbreviations aside ;) I'm glad my post is understandable. I tried a couple of different servers and although some started out downloading in the 1+ MB/s range, they quickly throttled back to around 0.5 MB/s. Still doing it this morning. Just need to be confident that it's them and they will...

    Stupid question (?): Is there a direct ratio between download test speed in mbps and download speed in Mbps? On my old Telkom setup I was getting download test speeds of around 17 to 20mbps which translated into downloading of files at around 1.5 to 2.0Mbps. On my new Telkom setup I'm getting...

    I set it up first with bunny ears (from an old router, they aren't supplied with routers anymore it seems :cautious:). After switching to the external antenna, I conclude an approximate increase of around 5mbps in speed. Still only high 20's, early 30's though.

    My Telkom B535 and sim were delivered yesterday. Hooked it up and working. Speed is slightly better, from generally below 20mbps to generally above 20mbps with the occasional spike into the 30's. I logged into the router once using the admin password to look around, changing nothing, and ever...

    Telkom fitted an external antenna, dunno what type.

    Tried joining MTN but they made it so difficult for me that I gave up and re-signed with Telkom. With screen print of the package I wanted, month-to-month 150GB, I went to a supposed main branch in Clearwater mall; After standing in a queue, I was told they don't offer that there, try Westgate...

    Tried, but it appears "admin" isn't the password. I never changed it and it's threatening to lock my router if I try again. My ping is 15ms.

    No, to be honest I don't know my way around the router settings.

    My ignorance and confusion grow. I ran a test yesterday, using my daughters MTN sim in my Huawei B525s router (supplied by Telkom as well as an outside aerial supplied by Telkom), expecting, or at least hoping for a dramatic increase in performance. The test results however, yielded the same...
