Worst ISP. Tried upgrading my 200GB package to the uncapped for R999 since black friday. Still nothing to this day. Glad im cancelling this service.

And... Supersonic is down again. They went from one of the highest rated ISPs in 2019 to certainly one of the worst if not the worst. Counting down the days until the end of the month when I'm switched away from them.

I just signed up for the uncapped FLTE yesterday. Router is at RAM courier. I moved from Rain due to terrible speeds. Hopefully I don't experience the same.

I actually read the first few pages of this thread and was very excited. Then read the last few and now depressed..

So i received B612 router yesterday. Plugged in and connected. Been averaging 15 to 20Mbps. I will try to move the router to get better reception, but so far I'm happy. Been watching netflix and no issues.

Ours is still chugging away at 170mbps on average and 38 upload. The B612 only gave us like 30-60mbps but our B618 solid 170/38. Plus some nights we hit 220/48 for a while.

Latency is also decent, at 22ms between Durban and JHB. Just EU routing flaps quite a bit but still decent at 190-210

And.... Supersonic is down again without any rhyme or reason. At least I only have two days left with me and they never fixed their accounting mess up thats been dragging for more than a year.

So, I go to log in to Supersonic's web portal today. They've shifted to using cell phone numbers for logins now.

Type in my number, get the SMS OTP and I'm in........ to someone else's account.....

Not that there's anything useful in their portal in any case.

There definitely is something up with Supersonic, particularly on JH-BNG-1.ZA in the evenings:

This is exactly why I left Supersonic. From 8pm onwards, it is impossible to stream anything with twitch, and international drops packets like nothing. I tried for 2 years to actually help them resolve it, to no avail. They are useless beyond useless

Been dealing with their useless tech agents recently on this and I'm given the run around and told to restart my ****ing router. They don't have a clue how to fix this.

Hi Calvin, what program is this? I'm with Supersonic in Lonehill and can confirm JH-BNG-1.ZA is ****ED in the evenings.
I'm measuring ping times.

Clearly their access concentrator JH-BNG-1.ZA has an issues.

Watch this space....
