Hi,

We got the 10 MB Uncapped Business ADSL from Telkom. The international access is slow to the point of being unusable. We bought 1 month uncapped from WebAfrica and the international access (using the same router and line - just changing the ISP) is working fine.

Has anyone else experienced the same problems? Telkom doesn't seem to think there is anything wrong with the results....

its because Telkom is going over SAT3 - heavily congested - last century technology... WA is on Seacom. Major difference.
