    Shaping or some other problem on Openserve (specifically Durban & surrounding areas)?

    I don't know where else to complain about this, my ISP (WebAfrica) is useless when I ask them to talk to Openserve considering I get the whole package through WebAfrica, I have zero communication channel with Openserve because they do not offer any support for end-customers, only ISPs. This is...

    Very slow Telkom LTE

    Getting 0.05MB/s download on Telkom's uncapped LTE in Reservoir Hills area. If they were fair they should charge R60 per month since they advertise and sell it at up to 90mb/s. A group should get together and sue them to return our money. Have logged faults to them but no help!
