    Mweb speeds

    Howzit guys, 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...

    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?

    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.

    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...

    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...
