This is the best I've got for 3 weeks. Absolutely shocking! Using Rain for 1 year never had speed issues like this. Bringing my business to a standstill. Probably going to cancel and move to another ISP.... today!

This is literally every single day without fail. Great speeds and 0 issues when nobody is online, and it slowly progresses to absolute crap as more and more people come online or get home from work. One would think that 45 down and 1 up is fine for gaming on local servers for games like Call of Duty, Battlefield and Counterstrike (which in theory it should be) but that's not the issue. The issue is MASSIVE amounts of rubberbanding, latency, ping spikes and disconnects.

Extremely frustrating.

EDIT: I'll do Mybroadband speed tests as well :)

Same situation,regarding the gaming side of things.
It was still playable on a competitive level for CS about 2/3 weeks ago, now its constant rubberbanding :'(

Not normally this fast but have load shedding currently and running on UPS. The other traffic is probably gone.

I must say I cannot complain on the R250 option. Constant more that 30Mbps download and 10Mbps upload. Poynting outdoor antenna. Closest tower line of sight 5km. Also not a big town, so speed should hopefully be like this for some while.

24/7 Sim tested to rain (speedtest server) to showcase its full speed, which you can get with the R250 package. I just wish they let me combine these two sims so we can have 24/7 access but with the unshaped version outside of 6-11pm.

Outside of this speedtest its 12-20mbps down and 4-5mbps up on the 2600 band. Can only get 10/10 on the 1800 band at like 5am otherwise it's saturated to a 4mbps.

Trying for a month now to get this sorted. 90% 5g coverage but no service.

Wow it still running well.

Download speed vary from 200-350Mbps but upload speed have increased quite a bit. Router still at the same place. Now it averages between 20-32Mbps where as before it was like 8-9Mbps.

Might it be a closer tower that can increase the upload? We received a tower closer to use and our uploads went from 10mbps to around 40-50 mbps.

Could be but I haven't noticed any new towers and the towers that are close to me are all pretty far away anyways

This has been my experience for the first 2 days on the R250 package. 1km away from the nearest tower.
