    I feel sorry for anyone that ends up extending for 24 months at R799.

    Seems deceptive on their part not to atleast informs us we can carry on a month to month basis at R525...

    anyone else notice throttling of connection between 7pm and 12pm and also packet loss.
    gaming has been crap , ping stays constant to server at around 200ms , but can see packets being dropped .during the day line is fine.

    tried different APN's as well and get the same result , or am i just unlucky and the tower is congested.

    in these times my speed tests don't go higher than 5mbp/s.

    Yeah my speeds used to be so good and lately from 7pm onwards its dead as a doornail.

    Strangely, some speed tests are fast but anything I actually try and do its slow as hell.

    I had this exact issue last night. fast.com tells me 30mbps, but going through my Twitter timeline on Tweetcaster, images took a second or 2 to load as I scrolled. I eventually switched to my second sim in my phone (MTN 50GB BLACK FRIDAY) out of frustration

    Telkom's upstream speed sucks, and/or their proxies in between.

    been running pingplotter , during the day have about 0.4% packet loss , and between 7pm and 12:00pm packet loss shoots up to 7-9%.
    yet ping in the game stays perfect , only in heavy action moments i get lag , it is some damn frustrating playing like that.

    will have to log a ticket with Telkom , just how fun this ticket is going to be to explain.

    I'm also experiencing slow speeds at night. During the day I reach around 20-30mbps...

    However I can't complain considering I can't find anything better than this deal

    Can anybody confirm whether normal torrents are throttled during peak hours? I don't use torrents at all, but was trying to watch an acestream, which apparently uses torrent technology. It was crawling and basically unwatchable. I get 50-60mbps off peak, and 30-40mbps during peak hours so I know my connection was fine.

    My ping has also been bad after 6PM lately. Like 160+ playing CSGO. No packet loss or anything just super high ping

    Ignore them. They cannot cancel or downgrade/upgrade without written consent on the application form. Mine went on month-month automatically from this month. Was paying R599, now paying R525.
