    Webafrica throttling torrents on RAIN

    I would strongly advise anyone against getting LTE-A through webafrica if you are planning to make use of p2p. Torrents are being throttled to +/- 100 kB/s, everything else seems to be working fine. It's kind of ridiculous if you take into consideration that you are on a *very* small...

    "Uncapped"? - not so much!

    I get really frustrated with telkom and other ISP's that offer "great value uncapped" packages - but they don't tell you they throttle you to death! How many gigs CAN you really download on a telkom FAST line and uncapped data? I am guessing 20Gig ave? Let's see - anybody out there want to...

    D-Link DSL 2750u Router capping down rate - PLEASE HELP!

    Hey all! So I bought a D-Link DSL 2750u Router a while back when I upgraded my account from 4mb to 10mb (uncapped). This was done to replace a relatively old TP-Link router which had relatively slow wireless connection. Anyway, the router worked great for 2 or 3 months, then for no apparent...

    Shaped and Throttled effectiveness

    I'm looking at different line speeds and was wondering how big of an impact shaping and throttling has on a line. If I compare the Afrihost prices for instance: 1Mbps Unshaped and Unthrottled vs 2Mbps Shaped and Throttled both cost the same. The same goes for the other line speeds. So which one...

    What is going on at MWEB?

    I have opened up this thread to hear the views and opinions of users regarding MWEB's enforcement of their AUP, how and why you think it was enforced? As an MWEB customer of nearly 5-years (and someone who works in IT) AND a user who has been throttled :mad: I want to better understand this...

    Why am I being throttled when I turn on my VPN?

    I am most definitely being throttled when I use the VPN on my iPad. The Speedtest results go down from 8 Mbps to 0,6 Mbps consistently. Why would you do this Vodacom? I paid the required fee for 20gigs of data in one month only yesterday, am I not allowed to use that 20 gigs? I bought the...

    Throttled Afrihost regular user?

    I've just been reading a few of the posts in these "uncapped" mega-threads and I'd like to know if anyone else who is NOT on an uncapped account but does have a 4096 line is getting throttled on torrents? I have never downloaded more than 10GB's in a month and have no real ambition to, but I...

    IS Express Customers - Have you / will you cancel?

    I've been a very happy IS Express (Axxess) customer for some time now. With all these exciting announcements in the market, I am now paying 100% too much for uncapped access, not to mention I am still rate limited during the day. Given how good IS Express really is, I am prepared to ride...
