How did you buy 1Gb Telkom-only data? I usually pay R80 for 1Gb all-network data from telkom prepaid for using whatsapp and such when Im away from home/work.

Go to sim cards under settings. Select manual network selection > Telkom.

Not sure if that helps or if it will switch but you can try it and check.

No - the only restriction is it's 3G not LTE.
Thanks. I was wondering whether my Telkom sim is roaming because I consistently get between 45-65Mbps on Telkom mobile on a prepaid in an area they didn't want to give me a contract for lack of signal.
