    Looks good to me so far. Only issue last night was Google DNS suddenly dying.

    Looking good. I am cautiously pleased.

    Yup. It'll slowly deteriorate throughout the day, becoming noticeably sluggish and choppy around 3-4pm, then useless by 5-6.

    Vaguely recall something during installation about needing to go to different hardware at the exchange if I wanted a 200mbps connection... maybe your connections are a legacy of that old policy? If I'm remembering right. Either way, there have to be more than 40-odd people on Openserve fiber in...

    How's your line tonight, @cavedog - far as I remember you're also in Centurion, but the lucky vark who keeps their speed when others fail? :laugh:

    Took a look around and @PDF_27 in the Cool Ideas thread is having the same issue. Also Openserve Centurion. I mean, figures that it's not just us guys on Afrihost getting shafted, but man... feels like it's gonna suck for a while til OS get this fixed.

    This is on a 100mbps line. Far from a speed upgrade, I seem to have received a severe downgrade. WhatsApp support is completely ****ing useless. The guy last night caused me to strip my moer and nearly cancel on the spot, and after going through the "troubleshooting" steps apparently wasn't...

    Line Speed upgrade

    Are you ****ing joking, or are you a complete moron? How many people have been working from home? Our offices were closed through the lockdown. Same story across my field. If I didn't have a line I wouldn't. have. a. ****ing. job. Luxury my ass.

    My 100mbps connection has the same issue. Upload speed is what it should be, but download is screwed, especially international. Been like that since this afternoon. Problem, because working at home.

    What's going on with the random short disconnects all day?

    So I finally got a rep on WhatsApp. They reset my line, which resulted in everything being dead. Switching to Google DNS sorted that, though, and now I have full speed again until the next cockup. Here's hoping it doesn't come.

    Well yeah, if others are having the same issue then I'm sure congestion is way down for you. Must be nice. Edit: just reconnected, but as far as international is concerned I'm now on a 1mb line. Afrihost, is this some sort of sick joke? Another edit: Local isn't any better.

    Really? Because I'm on Openserve Centurion and I've been unable to connect at all this morning. Router log says PAP authentication failed, but my credentials haven't changed. No response on whatsapp.

    If you mean connecting to the router via LAN cable, *that is how I always connect* and it baffles me that you folks always assume it's a wi-fi issue. Got a response from your support guys this morning with "Afrihost's top 5 ways to speed up your wi-fi!" attached. Completely useless to me. Oh...

    Yeah no, this is a 100/50 line: and I seem to be experiencing some packet loss and occasional disconnects now as well. Great. Off to the support mines.

    Is something going on with international again? I'm getting very poor speeds, and VPN doesn't seem to be helping.

    Afrihost - Pure Fibre Feedback Thread

    Eh, I'm just on edge because there's been no response from Afrihost's reps here and SA companies have a habit of taking the example of someone being fine and twisting it around to "our other customers are okay, this is an issue with your side, not our responsibility to fix". I'm sure you can see...

    You've got multiple people in the same area reporting the same problem and you're... advising checking the router. Are you sure you don't work for Afrihost support? Line's still not great this morning. Speedtest reports this: but it's loading like a 2 meg at best and still getting disconnects.
