Many Afrihost ADSL subscribers are complaining about slow speeds and poor network performance. To address these problems, Afrihost is upgrading its ADSL network across the country.
Capped and uncapped Afrihost ADSL subscribers have noted they are experiencing speeds well below what their ADSL lines offer and what they expect.
“I’m getting anything from 1Mbps to 2.5Mbps on a 4Mbps line with a capped Afrihost account,” said one user.
“My speed tests are hovering at 4Mbps on a 10Mbps ADSL line. I’ve never had such slow speeds since I moved to a 10Mbps line,” said another user.
Afrihost director Greg Payne said that the company had seen increased ADSL usage in all regions recently, and to address the increased demand for data Afrihost was upgrading its ADSL network.
“Last week we upgraded our East IPC (Durban and Eastern Regions). This week and next week we are in the process of upgrading our North IPC (Johannesburg and Northern regions) and our South IPC (Cape Town and Southern regions),” said Payne.
“Hopefully within the next 10 days or so we will be back to normal,” Payne said.
