    Is rain throttling my speed?

    Hi. I've been an avid user of the rain product for over six months now. Internet speed, for the most part, has been relatively decent, with rates averaging 15-25 MBs down and 8-14 MBs up. However, during the past month, the internet speeds have drastically dropped, making it very difficult, if...

    Need to optimize the B315 for gaming.

    Currently, even though my internet speed is good and my ping low, if another user on the network does something very basic (such as view an image on twitter) the network stream is maxed out for like a half a second. Loading a video on twitter will use 3-5MB/s choking the internet and causing...

    The cell ID is: 77759489 Also on a side note, my signal is excellent (90-85dBm), but my SNR is rather poor (6-8), which as far as I know indicates a lot of noise or interference. Is this correct? Any way I can Improve it? At some point last year I managed to pull a full 100Mbs on my B315 on...

    Telkom LTE Pathetic Speeds - PLEASE HELP???

    Our Telkom LTE speeds are pathetic, and I can clearly see from the Speedtest results that something is not configured correctly, our upload speeds are much faster than the download, which is definitely not correct. We have been using a Huawei B315 LTE Router, and I have also tried out the...

    Technician says that I can't upgrade to higher speed but website and router says so ?

    Good day , We recently upgraded from 4mbps to 10mbps after viewing on their coverage website that we can get 10mbps and it already shows on our account that we are registered as 10mbps so our account is no problem. We already waited a week and still no speed upgrade and when we phoned telkom...

    Fibre speed dropping

    I have a 100/50 fibre connection (Open Serve). I usually get about 96Mbps download speed. For the last week my download speed has dropped significantly. When I do a Speedtest it leaps up to about 96 in the beginning but then quickly drops to about 35. Upload speed is also slightly slower than...

    How to reset degraded ADSL line to full speed?

    I have a 10-meg ADSL line and it normally syncs at just about 10 meg. However when it rains the speed occasionally downregulates to 6, 7 or 8 meg, and sometimes it takes weeks or months for the full speed to come back. My router tells me the maximum speed the line can do is 13 meg or so, so...

    What should the speed limit be on South Africa's freeways?

    Many freeways in South Africa are long, flat, and have multiple lanes - which make them conducive to fast driving. What do you think the top speed should be on these freeways?
