    My suggestion would cause you a bit of downtime on uncapped , but how about trying a sim from another network like the Afrihost ones (if you already got) and slapping in a couple gigs and see how an MTN sim behaves. Not sure what prepaid bundles you can get from MTN directly , but idea is trying a different network

    Less costly / stressful way of eliminating the Telkom sim from blame
    Have you tried a reboot?

    You could try going into a Telkom shop and using your SIM in one of their routers.

    Test the Telkom sim in a phone and test a different sim in your router...

    So I borrowed a Huawei mifi device and put the Telkom SIM in there and an MTN sim in my normal router.

    The problem persists...so it seems like the router is not the issue.

    In desperation I pointed my antenna at a different tower and it seems to be more stable. The issue is that speeds are hond-***...like MAX 4Mbps, whereas with the previous tower I was getting 30-40Mbps regularly (up to 70 at times)...but then I have the disconnections...

    I'm considering upgrading the router to a B618 in the hopes that perhaps LTE-A will be more reliable. Is this something that might help? Also, will the 22d version of the B618 be ok or do I need the other one (I forget the model number)...

    Thanks for all the help chaps.

    My relatively new B618 is now showing about 1/4 signal on all bands compared to what I used to get

    Tested on the E5885 and it shows nearly full signal in the same spot

    Checked that internal antenna is selected

    Any ideas?

    Going to try a factory reset and see if that helps
