    FTTH Port Elizabeth

    Rain 5G users - Please do a MyBroadband speed test

    Just thinking out aloud here, I havent played much with gigabit on consumer hardware Is it single thread? tcp or udp I am not sure if Iperf uses disk io etc but you may be hitting the limit of what your pc can do (cheaper bus components etc) Another thing is latency with single threaded tcp...

    The unit density in complexes and flats are far higher than in normal residential areas (more customers for less trenching etc) Yet they seem to be able to make business sense without exclusivity contracts in normal residential areas? They are just trying to exploit the situation which i...

    10 year Exclusivity Contracts for Residential Complexes
