I am a client of Azess / Telkom LTE (Pretoria) - been having problems since early this morning. It improved slightly around lunch time, but now (17h00) it is almost unusable; speed test shows ping, dl and ul as all zero.

Well I got 4.6 Mbps download earlier, but it was in bursts, that is erratic, was peaking at 6Mbps. GW2 was also suffering erratic lag issues. Bit of YouTube streaming I did was okay.

I was getting 56kps felt like 1995 again... Guess that is what happens when you sell 10gb for R99, just have to wait while those use it up in 3 days to get decent speeds again... Sigh

Helkom really needs to upgrade it LTE and fibre networks as this once monopolistic company is losing customers because of poor service levels run by incompetent cadres

Read an article on IOL about the cable breaks. It specifically said that there will still be issues on the Telkom network.

Strangely my fixed LTE is having issues but not the mobile LTE. Why would this be?

There is currently an Openserve outage that is affecting Telkom LTE in PTA.

I've been having issues for a while now. There are serious problems that needs ironing out over there at Telkom, It takes 2 hours to download a 200mb file - absolutely uncalled for!

Add Rain LTE. As erratic as a fox terrier on dope. Also essential dead for long periods. Everything says the internet is on but mo data trickles through. Other times just dead when is was fast seconds before. Sometimes a router reboot helps other times not.
Totally untrustworthy.
And no explanation from Rain, of course.

You just got buy somewhere else, unless you have no alternative, then you screwed, so it is either pay, or go without.
