    Just got off a call with Wiru, spoke to Steven.
    Had to post this as his honesty was appreciated.
    He explained, they do have coverage in my area, sadly they are experiencing major interference at the relevant high site.
    He explained that he could take my money and give me service with loads of headaches, instead he suggested that I waited for a new tower to be commissioned in 7 months and he will ensure that I have the service that I pay for.

    Appreciate the honesty Wiru and patiently waiting because of this.

    I just want to find out from some of you who have wirulink installed.. Im trying to understand something.. According to the rep if you are on there 2meg/s line you will get a download speed of up to 1.7meg/s.. I can only get max 370kbps download on my telkom 4meg line.. Is this confirmed or a sales pitch and am i understanding this right!? So in line speed there 2meg line compare to a 20meg telkom line?

    You have a 4 Megabits line from Telkom but windows display the download speed as Megabytes. You need to take the megabits and divide by 8 to get to megabytes. Eg. 4Mbps telkom line is 4096/8 = 512 KBps . 1.7Mbps will give you max download of 212KBps.

    So Wiru released their new pricing. Their uncapped options are better priced than before but they charge an installation fee of R8300.

    Geez, R8k5.

    Also, do they need to install MIMO equipment for a max wireless speed of 10Mbps?

    To be honest, it seems it's a lost case for me. ADSL is crap in the area. Neotel LTE is crap in the area. Telkom LET too expensive and same same with all the WISPS I have found so far.

    Check here http://www.telkom.co.za/today/unlimited-broadband/ R799 for uncapped LTE speed up to 100mb/s.

    Can't seem to find the uncapped Wiru-Link prices but just making sure you have the right info.

    Thanks, but no coverage. Was looking at the 15Mbps Wirulink option: http://www.wiru.co.za/downloads/WIRU...t_Packages.pdf

    This is my typical speed test. A few times when my network is busy I have increased latency but it's never more than 20ms and on average I'd say its sub 10ms.

    They are pricey but in my experience you get what you pay for with them.
    What package did you get ? was it the lite advanced or supreme ?
