    You guys in PTA are not the only ones receiving poor speeds. I am on the uncapped fixed LTE in Tygerberg (CTN) and my speed is as follows: DL: 2.07Mbps - UL: 2.02Mbps with a ping of 45ms. It seems to be a national issue.

    I am just wondering if Telkom is not throttling our speeds because we have maybe reached or FUP/AUP for the month?

    Well, if you have the case numbers at least you can give all the case numbers to them when they spin the "according to them there is no issue with the LTE speeds in centurion" line.

    Can't help much more. My LTE speeds at Irene is low too, 3mbps range, the Telkom 3G (HSDPA+) is much better, more like 7mbps range. But I only use in in my phone and tablet, so don't notice it.

    And mine are capped accounts Josh B , so not FUP.

    Same story in Rustenburg I'm on 500GB LTE night surfer, I think Telkom mobile throttled us. I'm using 3g now on my phone much better.

    Hi people
    I am in Cape Town
    For the last two days, I am also having issues... downloads from overseas are slower than dial-up. Speedtest is fine, I get 20 something Mbps.

    What I notice is, the first 10 seconds the download is fast, then it goes slow, and remains slow. So obviously network problem.

    Who or what can I phone to raise holy hell? I am new to the Telkom LTE, I never had need to phone them before until now.
