    I seem to be getting packet loss to International alot. Local sites seem much better.

    My Iburst terminal says 100% signal and the worst it ever goes is down to 92% (It's the USB modem with Added Mini Antenna in Window) - I really doubt that this is a signal to Tower issue.

    Ping goes from 250ms to 600ms for bbc.co.uk

    Ping will timeout every 3-6seconds. (I've tried different area's in and around the home) - Signal seems to be roughly the same everywhere.

    I'm located in Bellville (Please check the Bellville tower's or maybe bandwidth provided to the Bellville towers)
    PM me for more accurate location

    I have been with iBurst for about 5 years. Until some time back I could watch Youtubies with very little buffering. The speeds have come down so drastically that it is driving me nuts. I waste time trying to read newspapers online - it can take up to 30seconds to move from one article to another. Quite literally, I can read the paper versions of the newspapers at a faster rate. What use is the large amount Gigs I get if I cannot watch any video clips? (I live in Boston Bellville and always have a 100% connection)

    Seriosly what is the problem Iburst, constant disconections and crappy speeds.
    I understand once in a while network problems , but the last 3 weeks have been realy bad with no explanation. some times it just seems as if My poor router spends more time trying to reconect then actualy being conected
    Some times the internet is so slow, it would be faster to just fly to Google's headquarters and ask them this $h1t in person.!

    Yip terrible speeds in Midrand. I wish Iburst could get their network sorted out. Value for money but really irritating when it does'nt work

    8 consecutive Speedtest tests done to the Midrand server:


















    Browsing is a lot more stable since about 9-30am today, no need to refresh up to 5 times to get pages to load.
    But sadly, Youtube vids still have issues at anything over 480p.

    Another 8 consecutive tests done to the Neology server in Midrand:








    Now this is what the norm was during the day before the new packages were released:








    Way better than it used to be. Still stable with no random disconnects and webpage loading errors.
    Happier with these speeds. Still not what it used to be like though.

    Belleville / CT basically dead in the water again speed wise. Constant disconnects pathetic speed. I stay within 100m of a tower and have hardly ever had these kind of problems. Attend please.
