Many clients and people i know, ADSL down.
Confirmed with Telkom and ISP major outage with undersea cable link from Cape Town to London.
All router lights on as normal, no internet access, tried a few ISP accounts same result.

Anyone else affected by this?

3 out of my 4 ADSL lines in Stellenbosch died somewhere after 15:00.

Strangely one continues to work fine.

The network has been insanely slow since 10am at my office in JHB. Struggling to receive and send emails with no attachments !
