This news is all good and well, but I would've liked it if it had the bit about 384 ADSL customers (cough) upgraded to 512 for free :D And the 4Mb guys going onto 8 and the 512 guys going onto the 4mb

But, then I woke up this morning

I guess we will be waiting for some time on this one. Anyone know if any of the ISP's are getting licenses to roll out Wimax?

went to a customer yesterday to do ADSL self-install - do 1 (384/128).

plugged in the router - oopsie - syncing at 8096/768! with snr of 6.0 - oopsie

obviously speed test confirms just a 384kbps transfer - telkom is slipping a bit doing what they are required to do....thus i had to listen to the !@$@! music again.

last week - same thing - do1 , 2048/708 - snr 6.0 ...their steps of installation/activiation really is not standard and sad.

I have a 4Mbps line and my upload speed is 640Kbps, but my downstream speed is about 800Kbps.

Some people on the MyADSL forums suggested that it is my DS noise on the line and that could be due to a faulty kopper line to my house, so I've reported it to Telkom and they say that they haven't found anything wrong.

I'm using a D-Link DSL-504T router and have updated the firmware yesterday, but that didn't help either.

Sigh!

Is there anyway to find out how many subscribers there are on the 384, 512, 4meg, and then compare them? I'm willing to bet that the majority of the customers are spread between the 384 and the 512 which is why Telkom is so reluctant to upgrade them. It would mean too much effort

I've ordered dsl so many times.. Telkom has never billed me, so after 6 months it gets cuts off, and telkom tell me that I canceled it 2 weeks before it actually got installed..
oh and when i did order, i ordered 384 and always got 512k.. lets hope for the best, Just got off the phone with telkom and lets hope my 4Mb line is gonna be awesome :D

big deal! No one is interested in the upload speed. And what about the 384k customers?

This 4Mb line is also still at 384 upload. I guess the upgrade is imminent?

Just checked mine:

WAN Port Statistics:
Link Status: Up
Upstream Speed: 512 kbps
Downstream Speed: 4096 kbps

Haven't done any uploading yet to see what the diffs is.
