On a brighter note, for me, the SIM swap thankfully has worked.

I got a decent enough speed-test earlier on, soon after the SIM started up again.
In-line with (ping) & somewhat better (d/load) than I'd been getting for the last month or so :

Ping 46ms
Download 14.62Mbps
Upload 8.84Mbps

Cell C – 2021-07-01 17:07:28
Server: ZA - Johannesburg

Nothing like the 120 Mbps (down) I got last night on Telkom LTE, but good enough for the price.

Cellc has been pretty sable gaming wise for me, using it everynight now compared to supersonic, much more stable and lower ping due to local routing.

Through throughput is pretty low at 4mbps it is stable.

Can only seem to connecto 2100mhz band only getting 5mhz in the 2100mhz band, using hauwei mifi router.

Unfortunately they occasionally throttle Netflix.

Hi there

Is this, what you are currently experiencing? And how often do you experience this issue?

^MP
Yes, and this is the response I got from one of your reps on Twitter. The form was completed and sent back but still.

Thanks for the info on the routers. I checked the coverage in my area and got a Cell C sim and moved to Home Connecta Flexi. I placed the sim in a Huawei B315s-936 router with the following speed test results:

Disappointing, but I am technically outside the coverage zone, even if it is only by 4 houses.

I'm running the sim in a Huawei B525.

Edit, a bit better on download tonight:

Ping: 18ms
Download: 3.11Mbps
Upload: 1.12Mbps

Do you see 4G+ on the dashboard of the Huawei?

Has anyone else noticed significant throttling with Netflix? I decided to cancel my rain subscription and dive right into cell c... Now I notice that Netflix does not work across all of my devices even though it's speed test shows a good result as well as that the network test is absolutely fine.. very strange.

Is there anything that I can do?

My prepaid 1TB for R899 is expiring 31 July 2021, and I have only used 596GB so far. Wish it didn't expire... To extend it costs like R8000+ for 30 days - ridiculous!

Happy with it, and will get another 1TB.
