My experience with Axxess has for the most part been great. About 3 years ago, I did move to another house and had the crappiest time with the connection, ended up driving me to Telkom, which oddly enough wasn't the worst experience I've ever had with Telkom, in fact consistent speeds for the most part. And cancelling my ADSL eventually when I went back to Axxess for the fibre was also not a nightmare.

So kinda a good review for both from me on that part.

Cool Ideas, I wanted to go with Vox after using them for many years on ADSL but Cool Ideas came with such rave reviews on myBB that I decided to go with them rather.

The pricing is super competitive and it's really handy having a company representative active on the forum.

There is however, a performance issue with my account and getting it resolved is proving challenging.

Vox - Have been with Vox from the time they still offered their Fat pipe and after hours bolt-on packages.

With Afrihost, there are no contracts - month to month. Super. Now, it would be nice if they could get the ClientZone data fixed for Fixed LTE (with Rain). That said, their service is brilliant during business hours and almost non-existent after hours.

Mweb, has a nice gaming latency and allows us to watch netflix without destroying the line
Are you in JHB or Capetown? What is your ping like to local and int servers? Just curious as the pings should be a physical location thing, and not ISP shaping thing.

Mweb has met our needs satisfactorily for many years, in fact I'm busy moving my business requirements over to them from the very substandard 1-Grid.

Telkom. Extremely unhappy as the line stays up but the internet is completely dead. Randomly every day/night.

Telkom Uncapped LTE (Smartbroadband wireless 3), was on Special R799 at the time.

Currentl R801 per month and entirely uncapped. Great speeds.
