Hi all,Location: Heldekruin Roodepoort - Johannesburg
price R1000 pm
contention ratio: 1:15
Package: 20 down, 6-15 up
gaming is a breeze with this, pings are amazing, and no jitter.
speed test after 6pm have been greater than 25down and atleast 6up
no Fair use policy(FUP) - basically can download terabytes and no throttling.
pretty much the best deal i have seen from any WISP's (at least of the ones i know of)
i am very new to them, just over a month, have not really made use of their after hours call center yet
i was with Wirulink for a couple of months prior to this, they are also good but definitely not as good as these guys in terms of
I get constant disconnection that lasts anything from 5-15 min. I literally have around -69db to the point I am connecting too.They are the cheapest WISP I have found so far. Do you also get random disconnects?
@SharkBait yes i do get random disconnect a lot of the times but theu do range from 2 minutes to 7-8 min... basically just when i pick up the phone to call them, it would start working again...im actually thinking of getting a 1 meg line(or what ever is the cheapest) adsl just to play online...They are the cheapest WISP I have found so far. Do you also get random disconnects?
My order has been open with Telkom for quite some time now, but once it comes through, I will change!@SharkBait yes i do get random disconnect a lot of the times but theu do range from 2 minutes to 7-8 min... basically just when i pick up the phone to call them, it would start working again...im actually thinking of getting a 1 meg line(or what ever is the cheapest) adsl just to play online...
I feel your pain... I have also had some serious connection issues the past two days. You can phone and complain, but nothing gets done. Apparently they are trying to stabilize the network, but from where I am sitting they are not doing much.I am done with Skyfi. Canceling my contract tomorrow if anyone is looking for a brand new dish and device let me know not even a month old. My connection has been down for 4 hrs now. And they charged me for a 10mbs service I am supposed to be charged for a 8mbs service
No need to proof to them your connection is shyte. They should know it by now about all the complaints going around. There is a link I have posted before, that does the auto tests: http://testmy.net/autoCan anyone recommend an automatic speed test to test on the hour or so...i need to send prrof to skyfi that my speeds are rubbish...when im at work they say that i am getting my actual speeds but when i come back from work (after 6pm) im getting half my speed...even at 1am im still getting half my speed...so i really doubt they are telling the truth...
You got PM
Keep dropping connection every now and then. Managed to speak to a techie who said that I need to restart my router once a day, because that is the way they work...Anyone still experiencing problems with SKyfi? I am having endless problems.
