    Afrihost congestion (on OpenServe) getting worse

    hi, I've had my 20Mbit Afrihost connection since October 2017. I've been exceedingly happy with it, but things are starting to deteriorate. I've been monitoring my link latency since Jan 2018. It's been pretty good, but April is when the problems started. See the graph below for a trend...

    Webafrica throttling torrents on RAIN

    I would strongly advise anyone against getting LTE-A through webafrica if you are planning to make use of p2p. Torrents are being throttled to +/- 100 kB/s, everything else seems to be working fine. It's kind of ridiculous if you take into consideration that you are on a *very* small...

    Rain LTE-A vs Cell C LTE-A

    I'm done with Rain, there is no light at the end of the tunnel for us. Rain has caused me so much unhappiness I will rather reactivate my 4mb/s line with telkom. But seriously, where I live my only options are max 4mb/s adsl or lte-a. So my question is I am considering moving away from rain...

    What is an acceptable speed while been throttled?

    I migrated from a DSL line to a 50mbs fibre line (Afrihost/TT-Connect). I have exceeded the 250GB quota allocated each 30 day’s which means I get throttled each day during peak times usually from 6pm-10pm. I understand why I get throttled, I understand that I can change packages to a premium...

    Afrihost mobile data down since Saturday

    On Saturday Afrihost’s mobile data went offline, and is still offline. No communication from them to me explain what is going on and what they are busy doing to resolve it. I am very disappointed in how they are handling this.
