I've been down for hours already. Support just say they are aware of network issues and are working on it. Bleh.

I haven't checked the speeds today, but yesterday in Cape Town, Durbanville was really bad. It was so erratic I couldn't stream F1 race. Changing bands didn't make any difference.
The quality dropped a lot, very sad.

Can agree to that, speeds was super slow quality was up and down non stop. Glad to at least be back in JHB with fibre! But as for Rain being part of my travel its a pastime

Is there any source/site for finding out the location of all rain 2600Mhz towers in SA?

Contact Rain. Theyll need your physical address and will only supply you with a general direction in which to point your antenna. They wont give out tower locations.
