Cell C fixed LTE data throughput experience

I cancelled my CellC and moved to Telkom.

The speeds are just wonderful.
Whenever I am tempted by CellC prices I remember the nightmare that their coverage and service is.

As much as I like the giga packages, I just can't risk it.

Hi cr@zydude

There's no rush, and feel free to purchase a prepaid sim card and test drive the network coverage, and service delivery.

We're confident that we can change your perception of us.

What nonsense, I bought the Afrihost deal... We have full LTE coverage in our area but my speed test showed me a download speed of 0,05kb and upload was non existent....

Surely you guys have to do something about this

After reading your response I am definitely canceling this crap, it disconnects for no odd reason, I rebooted 20 times yesterday alone, I am going back to RAIN, yeah their download speeds are kak but their network reliability is better than Cell C.

On a side note, I called CELL C today and their response was to first log a call with Afrihost but it seems like Afrihost is giving even more kak responses

Hi compu

Have you raised the matter with Afrihost, as they are your service provider?

Hi Bruce_Wayne

We'd recommend that you submit your findings with Afrihost so that they can have the matter escalated even further.
