...so the superstar I spoke to at supersonic this afternoon told me that if the towers in my area goes down, people fail over to the tower i'm on, and that's why the speeds/latency tanks....(congestion) I guess that excuse makes sense, but man it's sooooooo annoying. I told the oke - you lot...mybroadband.co.za
Thanks man! Missed that one. Exactly what I was looking for. So at least not the same network backbone. Huge plus.
Now the residual risk lies in the signal/congestion issues on my local tower I guess, no easy way to predict without getting a SIM and simply trying.
