I've been getting less than a meg for the better part of 2 days in a row now (in Pietermaritzburg). At one point it was 0,1 and right now it's 0,65. I can't do my online work (could not get hold of a 17Mb email attachment that I needed - it just kept crashing out), and had to apologise profusely to my boss for choosing the wrong network - despite the fact that he said he would reimburse me - I thought I was doing him a favour. Have put in my cancellation request. View attachment 835069

Hi Big Igloo,

This is my tenant in Sherwood Park, Cape Town.

0.02Mbps down!

He has been struggling for a while, but terrible recently.

He is using my B593. Would it help to give him my B315 instead?
