We still use ADSL. As it's the fastest stable internet in town. We do have WiFi internet via herotel, but it's super slow and almost tripple the price we pay for a connection that only reach 25% of what we have. LTS might be faster, but they're as reliable as Eskom's poweris during stage 5 loadshedding, and also expensive

With Vodacom?
LTE via MTN has never gone off for us with LS in the 6+ months we've had it.

Great prices too.

All of them. MTN internet was off from November 23 to mid Jan 24, and has days without internet. Vodacom might be better, but theirs are slow on a lot of days. And when it gets cloudy both suffer. Can't say anything about Telkom LTS as we don't know anyone who uses it

I think it's then dependent on where you are (I'm in NE Jo'burg), first I've heard about a cloud cover problem though so you could be on the edge of a signal footprint or have a faulty router.

Vodacom is usually worse from what I've seen, seem to be less involved with decent battery backup.

We live in a small town on the edge of the karoo. Pour towns so big we only have one ATM.
 
LTE>5G Router with a vodacom black Friday deal 500+500GB sim (not Fixed, used it from my house to KZN and Mbombela no problem).

Out on a plot and signal fluctuates, some days 25Mbps others 3 but still, better than starlink I guess :crying:
 
Fibre with a faiolver to LTE.

A man must work 25/8 and downtime is not acceptable.
