Question around all this. What happens when you request a line upgrade. So if I was on 10Mb but with the free upgrade it’s 20Mb. What happens when I upgrade to 20Mb with the ISP?

Do I move to 50Mb?
Yeap in theory.

Still nothing on 20/2 Vox/Vumetel. Do you have to reboot to get upgrade?

Lmao! It looks like upgrading the 20mb lines is like trying to draw water from stone...

Got mine sometime this weekend. Not sure when though, on Sat morning I was still at old speed, this morning now doubled (did not bother checking in between). Must say that I have not noticed any difference though.

Mine also weirdly kick in. On 50/5 Axxess/Vuma. Looks like Axxess isnt giving me the speed. Downloads from the likes of Steam, Uplay stop at around 5.5MB/s. The same as i used to get.

I got my upgrade yesterday. Vumatel / Cool Ideas - Killarney JHB, went from a 20/20 to a 50/50. Was really great to get the boos in speed as I was doing some large file tranfers.

Super Happy :)
