I thought Stellenbosh is sorted with rain … was one of the first areas to get 5g towers … plus the main guys like the CEO or the Bosses stays that side … it’s weird finding out that they have a problem

Need to try switch to the 2600mhz band if your router and tower supports it
Already using that. Band 38. Their network is rammed on all bands. Just depends how many people are connected to a particular cell/tower. They do not control this.

Mysteriously, today it's been working alright - between 5 and 15mbps. My "signal" must have improved

@jbroo no prob, at least you are keeping the tread alive :) @Kiemo i tried 2600 band, with and without directional antennae, my guess is their network is saturated !!!!!

I didn't even know we had rain 5g in Stellenbosch. I was on rain for quite some time, and I didn't have problems for most of that time, But then towards the end of last year it just went downhill. Became almost unusable most of the time. There was a time when I was happy to just get at least 1mbps. I cancelled in January and got adsl. Slowish speed at 5 mbps, but it's consistently 5. The worst it gets is down to about 4.
