    Zte MF283+ Help needed

    I struggled to get the ZTELink Android app to detect the ZTE router on my network, since I have a different WiFi AP device and the ZTE router wasn't my default gateway. So it turned out that I had to set my Android's default gateway to be the ZTE router's IP, and then it detected it and I then...

    Switching ISPs on SADV (now Vumatel)

    So it eventually turned out that Vumatel had a backend issue that resulted in my previous ISP still appearing to have an active service on Vumatel and thus preventing Axxess from activating the line with them. I only managed to get this information from Vumatel on Twitter on Monday (15 days into...

    Switching ISPs on SADV (now Vumatel)

    So Vumatel came back via Twitter stating that my previous ISP still had the line active, however my previous ISP previously confirmed they successfully cancelled and released the line with SADV. So I'd guess that the integration between SADV & Vumatel is where the issue is at. Now I'm hoping...

    Switching ISPs on SADV (now Vumatel)

    Hi all, What is the typical time that it should take to switch from one ISP to another on Vumatel? SADV originally installed my fibre line and I gave notice of the cancellation to my previous ISP in September, resulting in my fibre Internet stopping end of October. It has now been over 10 days...

    Mind the speed ISP

    So I've now received a nice R 1955.00 invoice for early termination (within 12months), which they probably had to pay for SADV fibre install. It is quite frustrating to pay this, even though it is stipulated in their termination agreements, seeing that I'm experiencing high latencies/packet...

    Mind the speed ISP

    So MTS support came back stating that it was related to the the International connectivity issue: https://status.mindthespeed.co.za/incidents/716 I do find it difficult to believe that an international outage should cause local issues, unless international traffic were rerouted and thus...

    Mind the speed ISP

    @Bl1zz4rd , I'm getting like 100ms latency from Stellenbosch to 1.1.1.1 (and also to the CSGO servers) at 20:50 tonight: # ADDRESS LOSS SENT LAST AVG BEST WORST STD-DEV STATUS 1 192-145-130-2.as328596.net...

    Hmm. I'll just then have to wait and see when I'm on another ISP from 1 Nov, since I've now requested to cancel my MTS account. MTS did sort out quite a few peering issues with local ISPs (eg. Seacom & Work Online) since I joined them back in March, and their Support is generally quite quick.

    Jip. That heavy packetloss was with the fibre provider (Vumatel), since this is what MTS support replied with on that particular issue: I am still not sure what to make of the 0-2% packetloss that I'm having when I'm playing on CSGO servers that are in Gauteng region, since I can't say for...

    Hmm, so tonight my packetloss is extremely bad, ranging between 6 - 18%: |------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------| | WinMTR statistics | | Host...

    Mind the speed ISP

    @Bionic , but I'd guess that you are in Gauteng with those kind of latencies and not in Cape Town, which could explain the difference in latencies.

    Mind the speed ISP

    I'm not sure if I should switch to another ISP and whether my CSGO packet loss is due to MTS or something on Vumatel fibre. Like it is quite annoying playing with a packet loss ranging between 0 - 4%. Both SADV and MTS said everything is fine and I'm not sure what else to do besides moving to...

    FNB - SMS claiming account is frozen...

    I also received an SMS today that claims to be from FNB that the account will be frozen in 10 days, however it does not start with the smiley face like the typical FNB SMSes of mine starts with and I cannot find any reference on Google (except for possible scams) to the number in the SMS, which...
