Tonight both my Rain mobile and Fixed Lte speed are terrible
20ms, 3meg down and up. Fixed LTE garsfontein pta, yet I can stream HD(1440p) YouTube...

Fairly clear evidence of shaping despite them denying it. RAIN obviously catch the mybb speed test app in their protocols, expect a magical boost once they figure this out.

As yet more evidence of shaping, a webpage test, 19ms 76meg down and 7meg up

A mybb webpage test(done on my phone as well to rule out wifi bottle neck), is 19ms with 73meg down and 8meg up.

torrents max out at 100kB/s every now and then but generally bounce around 70-80

Unshaped my arse...

Just ran the test now, but there is an issue: Running a speed test on the MyBB speedtest app always gives extremely slower speeds as compared to SpeedTest app.

The tests below were done one minute apart.

Ping 20ms

Upload: 23.93Mbps

Device: B315

Very happy with the product :)

Not so good.

It use to be faster.

Moving in Aug. Will initially keep rain but will move to fibre once a bit of homework on ISPs have been done.
