    What happens behind the scenes when you upgrade your speed?

    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?

    Finally cutting the Telkom cord any recommendations on fiber providers?

    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.

    How long does it take for fiber to be up after digging the trenches?

    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
