It might have something to do with loadshedding or more people on the towers or something. Have RAIN said if they are now looking at a tower outage?Apologies if this has been discussed before, I've been off-forum for quite a couple of days.
My download speed has been basically halved since loadshedding started, but my upload is still 50-60Mbps.
Logged a ticket with Rain support and have gone through the basics like resetting and moving the router etc.
My connection has been completely stable, and I don't want to cry about a first world problem but where I was constantly getting 400-470 down, I now get below 250 every time I test, but my uploads are still rock solid at 50+
Were there changes to the network or issues that anyone is aware of that I missed out on?
As I said, my connection is stable and 180-220mbps average is still absolutely amazing speeds, I'd just like to know what happend to the 400+ I was constantly hitting. The only thing that changed was loadshedding.
nice to see some1 getting good speeds...for a moment it was beginning to look hopeless with recent threads on low speeds/ cancellation.Went from 20/1 ADSL, to 0/0 stolen Telkom lines, to this - all in one week.
Got lucky as one of the windows in the house can actually see the tower 500m away between the trees, the other window with more foliage was 50-100mbps less when I tested.
Even if the speeds eventually dip when more people join in my area, I'm happy. Hopefully it stays trouble-free.
And therein lies the issue.nice to see some1 getting good speeds...for a moment it was beginning to look hopeless with recent threads on low speeds/ cancellation.
I hope I have not created the wrong impression. I actually do sympathize with those who are not getting a good experience. I just wanted to say that I would rather have 5G work out for everyone. I personally think for those of us in areas that might never ever get Fibre, 5G was a promising alternative.And therein lies the issue.
But what are the real stats of no's of clients receiving dismal speeds and lack of support for a so called 5G service?
And more importantly who wants to be stuck in a 24 month contract @ R1000 p/m having to fight and plead and claw your way out of it because your speeds are more like 4G or 3G.
Certainly not I!
