    Looking at all the replies here and in the other Telkom forum where users are having problems, I am starting to think that either Telkom is unable to provide a proper service or they are forcing users to use their paid bandwidth instead of the free bandwidth.

    This appears to be a failing infrastructure problem or a scam by Telkom as the problem is not limited to one area only.

    Lucky you! I started downloading a 556MB file at 05:10 (it is now 07:48) and it is 19% completed...

    When you experience the slow speeds:
    - Is the connection on HSDPA or LTE?
    - Disconnect and reconnect still the same?
    - What figures do you get on a speedtest?

    I'm fine with the new hours. I do most of my downloads between 3am and 6am ... so it suits me perfectly

    oh and I haven't noticed any drop in speed between day and night data either. I guess if it is slower it is because there is a lot of other people connected

    Received on 02/12/2016 ..."your night surfer bundle will be the same size as your current anytime bundle"

    I am on the R99/month 500MB all Network plus 5GB Telkom package. When I check onnet.telkom.com site for most of December it showed 500MB All Network night data and 5GB Telkom night data.

    I ran the PC overnight with 3GB in my download queue and next day I saw that all the data (4.5GB Telkom anytime + 5GB night data +500MB) had gone - first time of data disappearing for me and I am pretty clued on what I run. In the new year I saw that Telkom night data is in my bundle, just the 500MB all network data.
    Disregard labels and dump excuses. Disorder, syndrome? Diagnosis may be merely a freakin' description of behaviour.

    Just checked my cap and found out that I was not allocated any night surefer data for this month.
    Anyone else experience that?
