As soon as Fibre is avail in my area, that would be my choice. Adsl is no longer reliable and speeds are insufficient.

ADSL connection is the only affordable connection available in my area, no fibre laid yet. LTE is available but expensive compared to ADSL.

Uncapped from Letaba CC and at the same speed as 3G+ for R600 per month. Sick and tired with MTN not having Internet, although a good signal.

There is no fibre in our area yet and the cable lines have constant issues (which have previously taken up to 3 months to fix). So we went LTE and have had very few down times.

I am using ADSL because I am with telkom and it's a menace to cancel at the moment. I would change to fibre if the telkom cancellation process was much smoother.

  1. Please tell us why you selected this broadband connection
Your feedback is really valuable to us.
I have several Telkom LTE products, averaging out at about R7 per GB. Best performance / price ratio available to me.

Leveraging Rain Mobile Uncapped LTE on a "Fixed LTE router", best value for money.

Fibre - Cool Ideas 20/2 uncapped. Works like a charm and worth every cent!

ADSL. I operate from 2 different home locations one at Durban, SouthbCoast, Winklespruit and one at Champagne Valley, KZN Drakensberg. MTN seems to provide best speed link in both places but very erattic and latency seems to be a big problem in both sites causing erattic connection. ADSL download in Winklespruit around 8 meg and in Berg around 3 meg but seems to be the most reliable. I do wish I could achieve faster reliable connections but also want to be sure of a good voice service. A 100Gig Telkom ADSL SP serves me well, is usable on both linesat reasonable cost
