Yip, line is fine.

I think Necuno is right, must be bird poo on their satellites. Either that, or they running out of bandwidth again and need to make more upgrades

Very bad today. Shocking in fact.
Almost unusable at times, and then fast.Also some ports seem to be going on and off.

You mean "*** SLOW" is not the normal behaviour ?

Please stop joking around.. if it is truly ever not *** slow I would like to see documented proof!

This page took about 3 minutes to load . My word, but IS has to be the worst ISP in regards to reliability in South Africa. Its worth it to pay for the expensive Telkom bandwidth.

Update:

Apparently IS are doing upgrades - nice of them to inform us and carry out the upgrades during office hours - and are supposed to have them completed by Friday

Seems they are ALWAYS upgrading. One of these days, perhaps an "upgrade" will actually result in better quality. There is always hope, I suppose.
