So, what's going on? Is there loadshedding today or not? According to EskomSePoes there is, and my area is supposed to be off from 10 until 12:30, but power is still on. :confused:

But why would it be offline for hours after loadshedding. Or are they just not bothered to switch it on again. Surely it can't be good for the equipment to run without backup power.
No idea. But I remember from previous loadshedding when I got a backup for my ADSL router it died after 20 minutes. Which meant Telkom never maintained their backup equipment.

Question.. Are you connected to a mini DSLAM or one in the exchange?

I am not sure. It goes to a box in the complex, then to a bigger blue box outside the complex, then to Telkom office / tower.
