Mother-in-law had some choice words about rain downtime today. Not repeatable on a public forum...:)
You know I love it when the news is bad
Why it feels so good to feel so sad?
I'm only happy when it rains
Pour your misery down
Pour your misery down on me

Would be nice if RAIN kept everyone informed via their website of potential downtime or maintenance/upgrades. Was down twice yesterday for a couple of minutes, if that. Coming from copper infrastructure this "down time" is laughable compared to waiting days for cable to be replaced.

Customer service says down (5G) at my tower Moot area Pretoria, but I suspect its an eye blind to explain away the poor speeds.

I think I better buy some Telkom airtime as I'm not sure that the Rain network will be Black Friday ready! It's really slow for me at the moment ...

I am sooo fedup of Rain 5G. After more than two months I oficially decided it sucks. I am so tired of not having internet connection 5 out of 7 nights.
Posting this from my Telkom LTE. -Ggggggrrrrr- It is not worth the fast speeds if it cant be remotely consistent.

Canceled my Rain 5G this morning. Wonder if I am the first :)
I remember reading an article that Rain 5G uncapped won't go the same route as Rain 4G uncapped. I'm pretty sure I was reading that in the last month.

All I can say is LOL

Did you ever try the ODU. Was it offered to you even?
Nope begged for it, they said no can do. They did tell me they will send somebody to check things for me. Never happened. Back on my 40meg vdsl line and it just works.
