    But they still sell it as an unshaped connection and it is blatantly not if commercial entities are getting priority.
    The internet used to be a research tool, now it is a shopping mall.

    I have not received that email as yet from Vox. The only thing I am receiving from Vox right now is crappy net. Running on my Afrihost account at the moment just to get constant speeds.

    Also struggling with my internet at night the last week

    Politics is supposed to be the second-oldest profession. I have come to realize that it bears a very close resemblance to the first.

    Mine has been bad all week.

    Downloads that should take minutes are taking hours and I have horrific packet loss, sometimes refreshing 3 times just to open a pdf document.

    But Netflix is flawless, howcome ?

    If my line was only used for my netflix subscription I would be a very happy camper, but Netflix is less than 5% of my need so 95% of the time the service is useless. If the price goes up I will vote with my wallet, I did not sign up for VoD I signed up for business.

    So the "ongoing commitment towards improving efficiencies" means that they have now totally oversubscribed the available bandwidth and started to shaped the unshaped accounts. That explains all the comments of the past week.

    It looks like it is mainly the Western Cape that has Capacity / Infrastructure issues, I have seen that with several ISP's in the past.
    I think they assume we spend most of the day on the Beach looking at the Mountain so have no real need for internet

    Perhaps they run into capacity problems on weekends because everybody is streaming stuff. Really hope not.
    And, again... Sunday again and the same problem. ?????
