Agreed. No complaints for any area in Cape Town. Getting consistent 3G signal pretty much everywhere.I know this article refers to Gauteng, but they've definitely improved something in Cape Town. My data speeds have significantly improved over the past couple of weeks.
I bet if you swap sims and devices you would get different results.In my suburb in Richards Bay, Cell C has the 2nd fastest data network. I did a test yesterday with 4 devices - Samsung S3, Samsung Note 3, iPhone 4 and iPad mini, all placed next to each other, and all doing speed tests through the same server at the same time. The results were as follows (not exact figures, just going from memory)
1. Telkom mobile - more than 9.0 Mbps download, 3.5 Mbps upload
2. Cell C - 3.8 Mbps download, 1.8 Mbps upload
3. MTN - 0.5 Mbps download, 0.16 Mbps upload
4. Vodacom - 0.15 Mbps download, 0.03 Mpbs upload
Makes you wonder - the two biggest networks performed the worst...BY FAR !!! In fact their performance was pathetic...
I dont think that works if the network is the problem. In my case i was asked to get a new sim which i did but speed was still lousy. Then they blamed my area. They said they had no tower. Then they put up a tower which is now 200m away from my place but still no data. Then they blamed my laptop, to which i told the agent to go dream elsewhere. It works like charm in some areas but in some its just crap.I bet if you swap sims and devices you would get different results.
You obviously havent tried Plumstead. CellC data has been unusable for months there now(often 0.00 up on speedtest). CellC have acknolwedged that the base station needs an upgrade and that upgrades are starting in coastal cities from 1st Dec, I just hope they get it done this year else Im moving on to another provider.Agreed.
