Have sent it now, with additional message incl. that I'll re-insert the SIM & switch the router on for any testing you may want / need to do.

EDIT : Router's back on in original position (ie. where I got the better of the 2 speedtests), with the Rain SIM in it.
Thank you.

Thanks for trying, @rain_mobile , but as you can see from the result it's no better (apart from the ping), even though being routed to CPT :

https://speedtest.co.za/result/5044113

ISP: rain
Ping: 39ms
Download: 1.92Mbps
Upload: 1.12Mbps

Will have to stick with what I have, which isn't bad at all, but would like unlimited for part of each day which you at Rain offer at a reasonable price.

Thank you for the feedback. I've sent you a PM.

Can I just confirm something @rain_mobile , taking into account your latest PM.
I wouldn't see the point in continuing to use this at these speeds, for the entire 1GB, if nothing more can be done.

When I log back into my account details, I get :

billing for .... Peak
September bill so far:
R3.87
(0.08 gigs used)

If I don't happen to connect up again to use any more data, is this what I'll be deducted (ie. R3.87) on the 1st Oct (next billing date), or will I be charged the full R50 for the 1GB ordered ?

It does state on your site you pay for what you use, but just want to be sure it's the far lesser amount that will come off (should I not use more).
"my plan : pay as you use"

Thanks again.

Should you not connect again, you will be charged the amount you see on your profile which is R3.87. Remember your sim card is still on the pay as you use.
