Do I read this as no internet until the 23rd? Or there is another issue causing the disconnect currently. Screenshot_20210719-165722_Chrome.jpg

Hi everyone,

I trust everyone is well.

I wanted to make a few posts because honestly is usually the best way to retain clients and give clients updates on what is happening behind the scenes. I won't be able to disclose much but wanted to give clients just an update on what is happening and certain challenges we are facing.

We have lost JHB route to EU and rerouted traffic to bring connectivity back. That also affected some traffic between JHB and CPT.

As most know we and many other big ISPs are facing an IP shortage. We have been enabling nat to assist with these types of challenges. This is caused some issues for Vuma Reach, FrogFoot and Octotel clients in CPT. We are working to get these issues resolved asap and one of these methods are to reduce the need to NAT by pushing for IPv6. We have started rolling out IPv6 for Vuma Reach and most of our other FNOs are all enabled for IPv6.

If you have IPv6 disabled please enable this on your router as it will allow you more public IPs and possibly improve your overall experience.

We are working behind the scenes to manage these challenges and I'm confident we will have them sorted out soon.

If you are experiencing any issues please let me or the support team know for us to have a look and identify and fix issues where the pop up.

Hope this explains some of the issues some might be facing. Apologies for these we are working on fixing it asap and providing the best possible connection to all our clients.
Hi @AfriNatic
Getting quite frequent disconnects from the internet ranging from 5 to 20 minutes at a time and I'm wondering if it is related to this.

We are doing some emergency changes in CPT to fix the issues experienced. Apologies for the inconvenience.

Twitch doesnt even load, and not buying the 'its not us', sorry. Please get it fixed.

Chances of Afrihost having issues they cant find is way higher than something being wrong on Amazons side, that is a given. Come on now.
