Yet another day my Afrihost Fiber (Vumatel) down speed appears to be capped at 2Mbps.
Tickets were made yesterday and escalated, then escalated again, but looks like I'm going to be stuck at 2Mbps for the whole weekend.
Sometime last year due to COVID, the company I work for decided to pay for our fibre lines so that we could work from home. We were given the base speed of 20/20 Mbps on the Mweb ISP. Now, because I wasn't paying for the fibre, I wasn't too fussed when the speeds were inadequate or...
Vumatel have bought the fiber backbone infrastructure from SA Digital Village. Since they have taken over the service has deteriorated to an alarming extent. It is so bad that Vumatel cannot transfer a connection from one ISP to another within a period of 7, yes 7 days. They have also, in order...
I have a 100/50 fibre line and pay R1119 with Webafrica on Openserves infrastructre. At the begining of the month I noticed my speed doubled to 200/100. I thought this was a free upgrade because of the recent news about Openserve's free speed upgrades. Anyway, so I needed to download something...

I am looking for a network setup for my office with the following requirements and am looking for some advice on a single component (or series of components that can help accomplish this). I have an MWEB fiber line installed and am getting inconsistent internet connectivity and it’s...
I just moved into an appartment and there was already a fiber line with an ONT. I phoned supersonic for a fiber installation and told them about the ONT so they said they only needed the B number to take over the line. A B number is assuming that the line was installed by Openserve...
Hi, does anybody know the process?
Who does the actual upgrade? ISP or Infrastructure?
From accepting the T&C's on Thursday to last night at 11pm when the actual speed upgrade happened. Is this the usual timeframe?
I am posting this on behalf of my neighbour as they have no internet :)
They moved in the area over the weekend and had fibre installed on Friday through Webafrica but the line is still not active.
The problem is, they simply cannot get hold of anyone via their whatsapp live chat or...
So after almost 2 years of struggling and walking door to door to 350+ houses to get interest sparked to get fiber in our Area it happened it finally happened the Grey boxes are on the wall and the deed is done... Well so I thought.

I got an 8Mb Fibre Afrihost package. A speed test indicates 20mb but I attribute that to a free upgrade during lockdown. With the package came a Nokia modem and a d-link 825ACG1 wifi router.
When I'm about 10m away from the router (not in line of sight but in another room with door closed) the...
Someone recommended me MTN Supersonic 10mbps up and down for R659. We are a home and use the internet for everything and often go over our 150GB softcap. I want to know is there any other packages I can look into that are affordable? We stream a lot, fiber is in my area.
I am seeing fiber tunnels being dug out in my street. I am very happy to be getting fiber in my area after my 3year struggle with cellc/mtn lte. I am now wondering how long it usually takes? How long did you wait after the installation to get connected? It is done by vuma I believe. Thanks
I would like a gigabit router with decent wireless speeds that is capable of running OpenWRT.
What would one recommend I buy in South Africa?
I was thinking about getting the TP-Link Archer A7v5, but I would prefer buying local and cheaper (local prices for this device are in the R2k to R2k5...
