It should be renamed from 43.2mbps to 0.43mbps... because that is the highest speed i can achieve here in Richmond! Whoosh Vs Dhooosh!

The tower and backhaul capacity of the tower you are connected to has nothing to do with BIS and its capacity. It is two different things. Vodacom has a pipe to the RIM server which has a certain capacity...and there are people that is ripping this pipe a new one. Your data that you are using on a Blackberry does not follow the same route as a Android phone or a 3G modem.

43Mbps should allow a better average speed per user compared to the current technology which is great as the current speeds are pretty sad. I am really hoping the replacement of radios in the Western Cape means I get some reliability when just trying to use the voice component as this is SO frustrating at the moment. Dropped calls, calls not going through and so on.
