Initial results are good , the free router they provided was rubbish TPlink AC750 it only managed to achieve a max download speed of 48Mbps, after configuring the account in my old Zyxel 8924 router these were the results.

Hey please can you do a test to the following servers.

speedtest.net

1. washington -AT&T
2. washington - Speedtest.net

I can send you the iperf server later. If you have the time and patience to do that test.

I am curious about the seacom bandwidth to the US.

Are you still happy with Seacom? They appear to be the cheapest 100/25mbps ISP on octotel.

They are not the cheapest, adept is cheaper by a few rands. I am happy with their product though. The free install WITHOUT a claw back clause is another big plus.

Funny that they have a claw-back with you. When I signed up, on Vumatel, I asked them if there is a claw-back for the free install and they told me no.

Octotel is digging trenches in front of my house as I type (1st and only FNO in the area). Would you recommend Microlan as an ISP as their prices do look good? Looking at a download line speed of at least 100mb.
