That is yes. As soon as I hop on my office vpn. Which hits our Pretoria office then breaks out via a Vox connection I get 185ms stable.
Is that a spike or constant latency? My MTR tests from KZN are showing <180ms to that server you sent me?

It goes from 240 to 700+

This is from the VPN

@websquadza what’s Web Squads plans in competing against Afrihost’s Pure Fibre? They are now offering 1000/100 both local and international. No limiting international to 200Mbps

dont see how that is possible due to the distance, and its not like you're being limited now anyway, i mean you\re getting 560 now to london, i would like to see anyone get more.

I can get more if I’m cabled. My iPhone X doesn’t go higher then 560Mbps lol.

I was just curious if Websquad would make it official.

Man the wealth of knowledge in this particular thread is amazing - thanks for always taking the time @websquadza

So with regards to the process of an ISP (i,e. Web Squad) becoming available on Vumatel and SADV - is the majority of the time taken due to the physical connectivity between the ISP and infrastructure provider? Or is this more negotiations for pricing, etc?

Not nagging SADV is not yet available for Web Squad, just genuinely intrigued as to how the process works?

For now, we've still got way more international capacity than we'll need any time soon, in fact, we brought on more this past week (that includes those awesome new super short Asia routes). So we're still not limiting (as I've mentioned before, the FUP is to protect our network and other users on the network, and if you read the Ts and Cs of the incumbents, while limits aren't explicitly stated, they still reserve the right to do implement limits too. Feedback from the promo has been overwhelmingly positive (Thank you all) and we're managing network loads effectively. We've also made a few major upgrades in the background that have given us 400% more port capacity and significantly more core capacity across the board. Let's wait and see what real world results look like with the incumbents. These are the same guys who until last week had tiered services and inspired the smaller ISPs to launch products that defied their business models (Uncapped, unshaped, unthrottled and independent networks). Now they're playing catchup, which is great. Gives us pause to innovate again. What I am hoping is that now that the bigger ISPs have cottoned on to the 1 Gbps promo, Vumatel will play ball and keep the package come the end of the 12 month trial - and more importantly, that other networks begin to follow suit.

Out of interest, why are the packages not 1000/1000? Why the 1000/100? Surely there isn't that much of a discrepancy in the cost of outgoing bandwidth compared to incoming?

It comes down to the commercials and packages set forward by the FNO. In this case Vumatel settled on the 1000/100 speed (which matches their 100%/10% asynchronous model vs Openserve's 100%/50% model). Jury's still out whether they'll consider launching a 1000/1000 package at some point.

Hi all, am a new sub to the 1Gbs connection and enquiring if anyone else is having terrible speeds to international? Local speeds is great but international, like new York I'm only getting about 50Mbps at the end of a speed test, starts off at like 2Mbps. I used to get much higher when I initially had the line installed about 2 weeks ago.

Also, have you tried other servers? Speedtest.net results vary server to server based on that server's return route to our network and subject to TCP limitations (including the fact that some servers aren't optimised to wait for long TCP response times). Seeing the same for AT&T but Optimum Online for example is 3X faster on our testing right now.

One would think because Vuma uses active ethernet them out of all the FNO's should be in the best position to launch 1000/1000 pretty easily

Yes Sir, tried alot of different servers and that was with multiple connections selected not even single as the guys test in this forum for single connection testing..

Here is a test of optimium online right now...
