    So my father who lives on the other side of the country has telkom lte and he does not enjoy tinkering with anything that he doesn't need to.

    What's the point of midnight data if you're gonna throttle it?

    Yeah Telkom, you make us wait until 12:00 to use cheap data. And then? It's not even very fast. I'm getting a max of 250kbps here. So glad my fibre is coming soon. #fail

    TELKOMSA-R

    Anyone know how to force Telkom to roam on Telkomsa-R? Reception is so poor on Telkom and only works when roaming on the Vodacom network. Problem is that you cannot select Telkomsa-R manually as it forces you back onto Telkom after a minute or so. Very frustrating! Any help would be appreciated.
