I'm with Axxess / Vuma 20/2 waited for my upgrade to 50/5
I was upgraded just didnt know because i still get 20mb on speedtest.
I get 50mb on vuma speedtest.
They shouldve just said no to upgrade if they can't handle the extra upgrades. I do get 5 mb upload tho so thanks Axxess.

Speeds went to **** this morning, inexplicably. While digging around, I was prompted for a software update on my network controller, so thought what the hell, why not?
As part of the process, some network bits rebooted. Ran another speedtest and was met with this result:



This is up from 100/100.

So it looks like Telkom have come to the party...
Either that or they messed my account up even more!

I'm getting speeds in excess of 60mb on my 20/20, so good job Telkom!

But I'm still moving to VOX!

Vumatel Home-Connect - still nothing. Keen to test for this free period. Hopefully later today I guess.

Wonder why Home-Connect is not on this forum. Its cool to see how helpful @PBCool are on here...if they has free installation I should probably have gone with them!

Got this email a few minutes ago. I'm being patient...I'm on 100Mb already and this is a freebie, so...

It hasn’t been smooth sailing but don’t fear, we’ve got you! We noticed the delay in free upgrade roll-outs the past week.

Great news! We were able to squeeze another month out for you! Vumatel has agreed to extend the free speed upgrade until the end of June giving you up to three months of faster fibre.

Now sit back, relax, pop the corn - throw some Astro’s in it - and get streaming! Don’t know what to watch? Check out our blog for ideas.

P.S. We confirmed that more than half of the upgrades are done and the last of the remaining customers should be completed by VUMA early next week.

Yours faithfully in frickin’ fast fibre,

The Webafrica Team

Is there any info from Evotel yet @PBCool ? I see they are listed as being part of the promotion, still seeing roughly 20/20 on mine with cool ideas.
