Hi, does anyone here use Bitco's 30mbps home wireless internet and is the latency good for prolonged use of online gaming?

I used Bitco's 10mbps a couple of years back and it was amazing. I then moved to Vodacom fibre and it was such a big mistake. Am on Rain 5G now.

Oh wow, i see i actually have coverage for this here in Durban..

is it completely uncapped??
speeds consistent as well...?
also worried about gaming consistency..

annd would it be worth the extra R500 i currently pay for Telkom LTE 80gig...

Sweet, how long did installation take?
It's quite quick. Depends on where they find the best signal. With me it was on the garage roof, so had to pull in a cable from there. Only hazzle is they have a "period" of up to a week where they monitor the signal before installing the router.

and is it a capped package or uncapped?
have you had any throttling at all?
Uncapped. I'm not an online gamer so wouldn't know if i get throttled. Used mainly for downloading movies, series and streaming.

I dl quite alot of k@k. My previous wireless was 6mbps - for streaming it's a bit schit. So i wanted to upgrade to 10mbps which is R999. Just makes sense paying a little extra for 30mbps.

I jumped from R810 - Well worth it. And when the girl and kids visit they can go Bosbefok without hindering my streaming. :laugh:
