In the light of the Openserve Temp Speed Upgrades - thought I'll open a thread for tracking of areas that have received their upgrades.

Edit: Fibre and ADSL

For ADSL, this is a marketing gimmick.
ADSL is an "up to" and "best effort" product.
Pay for "up to" 8Mbps, but due to attenuation the SNR was too high to allow more than 5Mbps.
How they going to speed up the 5Mbps?

FYI:Telkom was happy to get paid for 8Mbps.

Yup, I'm cruising in the region of 100/50 up and down now.



PTA East for area reference.
Sweet!

Pretty curious how Telkom goes about the upgrades. They should be able to do upgrade everyone on fibre in one go.

Also still waiting for Temp Speed Upgrades in Lyttelton, Centurion, on a relatively new Openserve fibre network, which was installed in September 2019.

I'd recommend rebooting your Fibre ONT box and also your router. Switch them both off. Switch on the ONT and wait for the optical light to come on. Switch on your router and hopefully the upgrade takes place

What "up to" ADSL package are your on?
Is it a 4Mbps?

If Openserve upgrades you to 10Mbps, I think you will still only get 2559 kbps / 509 kbps.

That looks like 2Mbps adsl line on interleaved mode

Thanks to GRANTDUKE for the tip.

I have rebooted all devices and now I am on the Upgraded network speed.

Those stats look very good. 40mbps/3mbps should be possible.

Curiously my 20MB VDSL line is ducked and syncing at 12mb down with 512k up instead of 20/5.

I can only think these idiots don’t have the capacity to handle these upgrades and so legitimate paying customers are getting screwed.

****

And I should add this is a line that can sync just under 40MB normally.
