I really wish someone could explain this to me. Look how clean the trace route looks on VPN compared to without VPN on rain.
Although the latency on the VPN is much higher the quality of the internet service and streaming feels much faster with the VPN on.
What's up with the terrible routing on South African networks~!??!?!
mmm - OK.MOBILE NETWORKS!
Although it low latency its jumping through much more hoops so on slow connections it super noticeablemmm - OK.
Here is a tracert from my phone on vodacom

Basically ISDN speeds. Labelled broadband. And that's why it's false advertising to say they deliver up to 10 Mbps. I would really love rain to update their advertising to include from 164 kbps up to 10 Mbps then it won't be false.
They really need to add additional access points in adjacent neighborhoods. They are basically trying to deliver internet service to half a town with one tower.

Might has well but its not my rain account so kind of stuck with this poop. Also rain support has stop responding to my support message on the inbox here on the forum.Just cancel , had the same issues with rain had no choice but to cancel , support is no help
Rather just get MTN’s Fixed Uncapped LTE 10Mbps
Not much more than rain 24/7
There are very good options now for LTE under / at 100 GB anytime, nevermind the added night data.This is the average speed of rain in my area. Also doesn't matter how many devices you connect they all get the same speed. Weird right, you'd think the fewer devices the more speed you would gain.

Also besides this thread check my inbox with rain consultant:

So at least 20 times I had to contact them about these slow speeds and connection issues. They always just looking into it. and asking if its better then I have to tell them no, they look into it again. Never any change. We don't even use 100gb a month so its can't be because of FUP.
Rain is so depressing.
