Point taken... Do you have any recommendations apart from speedtest.net and mybroadband speedtest?
No worries, I have a thick skin and don't get offended easily. Regarding the upload speed, I agree it is not good at all, so I will be logging a ticket with rain to see what can be done.Hey there, my comment was tongue in cheek - i'm just joking most of the time. Enjoy your rain connection. I'm glad it's working lekker for you. Hope it stays like that. Your upload speed sux though.
Located in Sydenham, Johannesburg. It is sitting next to a window but there is a lot in the way which I am sure impacts signal, as mentioned in my above post, I will eventually mount it outside on the wall when I decide to stop being lazy...Which area are you located? Did you trey get better speeds by placing CPE nearer a window / on the roof?
Okay, so here are a few results from the speedtest sites you recommended:https://www.fibretiger.co.za/speedtest (One page with multiple speed tests)
Thanks. Its a pity that it did not work for you. Did you reach out to rain and if so, what sort of feedback did you get? The reality is that it is a potentially great service and when it works, it works very well...Yip, looks pretty good. I hope for your part it stays that way.. I have parted ways as that was not the case for me, but happy for you!
I have to agree with him. I have been a forum member for a decent amount of time and i must say initially the Posts here were to help members with technical issues. Once we as members failed to achieve this you have the option of approaching the ISP/ service provider to assist. The trump card with Rain has always been " Month to Month" if you not happy with what you paying for cancel and move on.So firstly, a note to all trolls, I am by no means saying that people have not experienced issues with rain... The purpose of this post is to share MY experience with rain, so you can moan all you want, I am not here to fight or argue with anyone, I am here to show what I get. I have not yet tried to mount my router outside or on the roof, it is sitting comfortably in my study close to a window.
Here is the result of a speedtest I have just taken. I will take another one later on today and post that result as well.

Enjoy buddyQuick update, between 13:03 and 13:07 I conducted speedtests through mybroadband, speedtest.net and speedtest.co.za and here are the results. To ensure consistency, I will conduct tests again at around 6 this evening and then at around 9 tonight to see if the results are in the same ball park.

Very nice speeds there. What package do you have from Vox?
You my baby... you my baby... my biaatch .... life is good.
Any speedtest to substantiate your claims?That upload though wow its bad.. You should be getting aroudn 200Mbps+ as they state, i get 240-450Mbps depending on the time of the day, but upload for me is always a solid 64-70Mbps
Your signal is actually bad you probably just on a tower that has no other users yet
