Uncapped mobile data vs fibre — 10Mbps to 100Mbps

South Africans without fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) coverage or other fixed-line options have a wide range of uncapped LTE and 5G mobile data products to choose from, often at similar or cheaper prices.

Rain started to make a name for itself by being the first mobile network operator to offer uncapped data packages at prices that were considered affordable to many mobile users.
 
How stable is MTN LTE these days? Looks like a good deal for some relatives , but they won’t like their connection going down every couple of hours when trying to watch Netflix.

I made a similar point a few months ago, that maybe the mybroadband speedtest tool should also test packet loss levels in addition to latency.

packet loss levels and latency are much better indicators of the performance and reliability someone is likely to experience, outside of downloads.

Not bad, except it is about non-existing during loadsheding.
 
With more spectrum available to them, mobile data will kill fibre on the lower access tiers.
 
I wish MTN would stop using the term uncapped when it is clearly not uncapped.

It's not 'unlimited' but it is 'uncapped'.

I think ASA ruled as such when someone was claiming 'unlimited' for a similar service.
