Anybody using Rain in the Fourways/Broadacres area? Are the speeds decent or no good around these parts?

Our fibre provider's upstream provider is turning out to be useless so looking for an alternative.

Your stats is fine. Might be a congested tower.

:love: Got this Huawei H112-370 5G/4G router [KZN in a no FTTH town] over a month now. Never saw it break 82Mbps on rain. Low and behold, this morning before bed around 03:00am, finally the investment paid off. No external antennae. Auto settings. R250 package.

Hi @James

How many other devices do you have connected to your router normally and also how long have you been experiencing this issue? Could you please PM with this information and if you could add the email address that's linked to your rain account as well, that would help me assist you further with this issue.

This is how wonderful rain is :

Ping: 849ms

My internet is practically unusable, I am lucky if I get 0.5mbs. Is this what they call a best effort service?
I am on the R479 package, I would expect at least to browse the internet, but even that is not possible.
I am absolutely gutted with the service i'm getting from rain.

Sorry for the rant but I just has to let my frustration out. RAIN please fix your network!
