Holy sht. Didn't realize it had grown to be Gallagher hall big. Last one was at a much smaller voda venue, no?

Also...from prior experience...the articles 2.5k people claim is solid. In fact that looks suspiciously like maybe a bit more by 100 or so.

No wonder none of us couldn't even whatsapp in that network.......you were running speed tests!
Probably wifi congestion. 2k plus people is going to screw over the wifi no matter what you do...the wifi tech just can't deal with that density no matter how much fibre backbone you have.

Just one question: Above the Yo-yo is that a small tub of vaseline (I think if it is, it's a fitting gift for anyone paying high broadband prices in SA):

It's not a tub of vaseline, it was a jar that you were supposed to take and go get it filled with Jelly Beans at the Mweb Business Stand.... :p
I had to do it more than once, just to be safe....

Lol, so you guys had to stand there with your little jars and get jellybeans? Knowing MWeb, they could only hand out one jellybean per user and throughput was really slow :whistling:

But they run wifi in high density areas often.

It'd either backend or equipment

They had one of those pretty ladies from the Neotel Girls doing it, so I was suitably distracted while waiting.
