Now that just plain down shite speeds.

Time to move service providers I reckon
Yep, But I feel as though Im being ignored :(, called Cool ideas support line, they said they will escalate to the engineer and I also asked them just to atleast respond on the ticket. Non of that has been done I believe:(

Actually, this has been done. 3rd level engineers approached me with a number of tickets about the same issue.

I am responding here.

In Benoni on Vumatel, haven't had an issue with packet loss or speed issues, I get terminated at the Teraco node.

@TheRoDent as long as he does not kick equipment that makes our connections work, let him aim at non-vital equipment or other providers equipment please :p

It is still very up and down.

Rather the devil you know.

That's got to be the silliest saying. Rather the devil you know? Then quit the whining and live with it.
If the world worked with just sticking to what they know, nobody would be arsed to actually do any better than what they already have.

I agree with you, but with ISP's (and I have been with a few) I would say that saying fits perfectly.
