    Afrihost MTN Fixed LTE-A Thread

    Many thanks for the Speedtest. Your international speeds are still very good! I am still hoping that the problem is going to disappear as I have only noticed it in the last week or so. Otherwise I will probably switch to Telkom Mobile which was slower than the Pure LTE before it started to...

    Maybe then it's only in a certain geographical area as it sounds as though your connection is still working fine. You were always getting very good speeds though!

    You can probably change your mind before the end of March if speeds improve. Hopefully they will fix the issue if they see that new customers are beginning to cancel.

    Afrihost MTN Fixed LTE-A Thread

    Tonight the speeds do seem to be particularly bad. It's possible that the service might improve after a few days. Were you able to cancel before the February cutoff date? I'm not sure whether that is the 15th or 22nd etc. Otherwise you will have to stick it out for another month!

    Afrihost MTN Fixed LTE-A Thread

    Do you mean Supersonic LTE? There could be differences in performance due to different network routings and configurations. I'm not sure whether there would be much difference between the Afrihost and Axxess services though as they are both part of the same company so might use the same...

    @Radar1: The tower in my area does appear to stay up while loadshedding is underway. I hope that you can determine the cause of the problem so that it can be resolved. AfriMan mentioned the possibility of adding some type of reset button to the ClientZone for customers whose connections...
