It doesn't prove much, though. ISPs prioritise speedtests.

In any case. You would be better off trying Telkom, MTN and RAIN although I suspect your best results would be on MTN.

Streaming Netflix or not streaming does not make much of a difference. Once you start uploading is when the ping goes bonkers.

The Fiber in my area going live this week has had a major impact on Rain. First time in 6 months I have seen stable 5 Mbps.

I am on RAIN LTE 4G R479.00pm Unlimited package. Meant to be capped at 10mbps but I get continual speed tests of 5mbps up 35mbps down and 21msec ping. Generally Email downloads OK, most websites open fine but you cannot watch Youtube at all. Those speeds dont make sense to me unless it is being massively shapped.

Yes I am getting this consistently no cap …

that’s why I decided I’ll get my rain sorted until eastridge gets fibre whenever

The last 2 days my internet speed has gone down the drain. From getting about 15-20Mbps I now get 1-2Mbps :crying:

I have rebooted the router several times but no luck.

RSRP -76
RSRQ -9
SINR 1 :eek:

I've been getting stable 200+ Mbps since I got the Rain 5G in May last year but since a week ago,speed has been hovering around 40Mbps. What could cause this? I've tried resetting the router numerous times but nothing seems to be working. Rain support guys are just no help.. **sigh**
