Thanks for including Cape Town, but next time please include the R27 up to Melkbos, a large part of Cape Town live along the West Coast.

looking at how some of those speeds drops <0.5 Mbps....... massive network or coverage problems.

Does Telkom have any kind of carrier aggregation between their 2300MHz and 1800MHz LTE yet? I know they were talking about it at some Fancourt conference a couple of months, but don't know if it is turned on across the country.

I would presume if one's driving it's going to spend most of its time on the longer range 1800MHz frequencies even if it's passing through a 2300MHz area.

I can't see how people could use anything else than Vodacom around Cape Town!

Pity you guys missed the M3. From about Wynberg all the way to Muizenberg is a disaster.

Can't trust the Networks. I've always relied on my cellphone for gps. Still do but even beforehand I make sure on googlemaps on the PC at home, take a pic and memorise where I'm going. Had a situation in Midrand once where the cell maps app got a bit confused.
