Nothing you can do really. Pay up your subscription and be satisfied with your shitty FTTH connection.

We all thought that moving away from our slow ,but usually stable Telkom Adsl connections would be the answer ,but my experience so far with fibre through Frogfail has been just the opposite.

Their own rep @Frogfoot Fibre has been mainly absent through these troubling times with no answer except to wait until 2021 for upgrades to their infrastructure.

The question still remains why do they continue to signup new clients sending reps of ISP's to stand on corners in neighborhood's all over PE if they have no capacity?

Its probably easier said than done, but why dont they just reroute all clients via JHB for the duration of the CPT link down time - customers will receive higher ping temporarily but atleast stable speeds and latency

It may be an option that can be discussed with your ISP.

We are seeing really good performance for our clients getting traffic in JHB. Latency to CPT and international might be a bit higher but in general it's really good.

Surely with PE appearing to be a landing point for the new 2Africa undersea cable we will soon see routing & peering being done somewhere in PE instead of us going through CPT or JHB?

That way traffic destined for specific destinations will be much more efficient and traffic would be spread over all various links

From their website:
Q9: When do you expect the cable to be completed?
A: We are currently working for a cable completion date in 2023/early 2024.
I would think that perhaps some data centre would be setup sometime before that for peering/routing

Please apply for other FNO providers for your respective neighbourhoods. So tired of rubbish performance. We need to improve competition around PE.
