    Very.... Could be we just don't know what Telkom is up too. I won't mind testing from my side too but my tower is congested 24/7 even with LTE-A.

    What kind of speeds you get night and day?
    I told the promoter "I'm too big for your gig" Terabyte

    On this tower. 3G about 1Mbps, 1800Mhz about 4Mbps 24/7, 2300MHz about 10Mbps and LTE-A about 22Mbps.

    On Sundays it's really bad. Sub 10Mbps speeds

    I average 1.5 ~2MBps (down from 4~5MBps before it became mainstream). And still manage to get what i want ,maybe not as quickly but still get it.

    It took me roughly 2 nights to download the entire Dexter series -70gbs And maybe a week or 2 to get the X-files -90gb which was poorly seeded. Point is i got them.

    But i guess to some degree speed matters.

    Im on a capped 20+20 package and i was wondering the same thing..

    I was downloading some zip files of about 200mb each this morning before at about 6:45, the speed was slower than usual but as soon as it was 7:00 my speed went back to normal(30-40mb/s).
