For your enjoyment, Rain speeds in East London (sim card from www.rain.co.za, assumed to be rain mobile).

Huawei B618 Router shows 5/5 bars all the time.
[LTE] [RSRP: -95, RSRQ: -10, RSSI: -67, SINR: -2] [1800 MHz, 10 MHz, 61FA603]

Speeds right now in Amalinda, East London:

I have a shell script that uses speedtest-cli on github to do tests every hour for fun (off-peak only), you can see a log of speeds since 30/04/2019 here: https://pastebin.com/tYJwdPzU

Generally speeds are bad from midday to midnight... Here's the log for Gonubie, East London: https://termbin.com/cc2w

Also a Huawei B618, used to have 3 bar signal and poor speeds as well until this month suddenly I have full 5 bars and great speeds, Steam max speed showed over 8MB/s a couple of times, now if only they will upgrade Amalinda tower.

To help us to report accurately on Rain’s network performance, we need data from as many people as possible. Please do a speed test using MyBroadband’s web-based speed test and Android speed test app.

Please post your results here. It makes it easier for us to quickly check for network issues.
