We have been using :sick: Afrihost fiber solution :sick: Vumatel.
50Mbs+ fiber is pretty fast, on paper, but in reality it is pretty slow if you are with Afrihost.

We have been experiencing so many intermittend speeds that you can actually pick any number and that we have been.
What about 0.5-10Mb/s speeds as average.

Can barely stream a 480p video. Cant download with more that 5Mb/s speeds. Cant upload more than 2.5Mb/s to Onedrive. Cant download imap emails faster than 5Mbs.

On a good day we get to enjoy 16Mb/s with speedtest but not with movie streaming.
So where is this 50Mbs+ they are selling?

TRied different routers, tried diffenent connections, then tried to contact afrihost but no one replies or contacts you back.

AFRIHOST is really just Useles with after support.
Don't give them your money. They will take it and then throttle your fiber connections and port filltering and service filtering on your connections. I thought this would only happen after our 500GB cap but they do it all the time now from the first day of the month.

If want to have a little bit better streaming on my movies, I have to open a few streaming sites to pull Mbs over the fiber connection, close them then continue my movie. What a load of BS fiber to work with!

Their fiber deals are all a myth.

This looks like a trend of big businesses in SA. Customers are not important cos they have a lot. The smaller guys know their survival depends on keeping customers happy. Time to slice the cake more fairly.
