I have Axxess Cell-C Fixed-LTE, Huawei B618 with a signal booster. In Stellenbosch.
In December and previous I got download speeds up to 25Mbps and 15Mbps up, stable at 15/10Mbps.
Now, for the last week I can't get anything faster than 1.5Mbps download and 1Mbps upload. The connection is stable and I have great ping constantly, but I'm sure my speed is being heavilty throttled.
I live in a apartment block and 3 of my friends/neighbours also have Cell-C Fixed-LTE but with afrihost. They are having the exact same problem, also great speeds previously.
Tried the different APNs, lte.broadband.is and internet, reset my router and tried moving the signal booster around, still the same.
I logged a fault/ticket at axxess a few days ago and all I got was "logging fault for further investigation".
I don't know why I'm still using this internet, this is pathetic. My problem is this is all I've got. No access to ADSL or Fibre whatsoever. Local wireless ISPs are even worse than what I have currently.
Ugh, first world problems but holy heck it is so frustrating!!!
That is also what I think. It is not a router issue at all - but an Afrihost bandwidth/network systems [throughput/allocation] management issue that CellC also has said is likely the problem. But AH has not admitted to that being the issue - they keep pointing to CellC 'connectivity' issues ...
----------------------------------------------------------------------------Afrihost ISP Cell C LTE Fixed wireless and live in Stellenbosch. Getting speeds of ±0.04mbps constantly throughout the day for 2 weeks. Simcards have been changed and all the stuff the consumer has to do; even filled in a forum for CellC but received no feedback.
I will switch when Fibre becomes available as I will not fall prey to the same false marketing I received from CellC/Afrihost. Most days have been stable but this is not a good option if you run a business from home.
How can I push for companies to supply the infrastructure in my area as we have many households who are fed-up and will switch to fibre?
Cellc 100gb LTE down in phalaborwa. Has been working on 3-4 bars signal for months now getting 2.3MB per second. 11am today it went down.
no reboot or apn change is helping. the 4g signal can be scanned but once connected it refuses with a cross.
Thank goodness, thought I was the only one !!
