Hi,
Is anyone else having issues with Afrihost fixed wireless being throttled?
During peak times I get throttled to 1mbps.
That was still useable, but lately it seems like they started balancing usage even more.
Now I get 1mbps for 2 minutes, then it stops complety for 30 seconds.
This continues for a few hours each day, always at the exact same time.
I do not have any updates or things that use the bandwidth.
Checked the tx and rx on router, it drops to basically 0bps.
From what I can figure they oversold their bandwidth.
Their support seems a bit clueless to be honest.
Any idea what can be done?
The signal between my router and their repeater is nearly perfect, so I am quite certain issue is further down the line.

I think it's all round. One minute I have awesome speedtest results and then do another and get shocking low speeds. Uploads have gone down from average 22mbps to 1mbps and less. Something fishy is going on or something is just not right somewhere

Nope. Since I forced my router to 2600, I don't feel any slow downs any time of the day.

I will try changing the frequency, that may actually help.
Could be interference or something.
