    I am on fiber and guess what every fking evening i sit with 1000ms latency. Its 3 weeks now and not a single ISP is communicating as to wtf is going on.

    Cant stream, cant game. Browsing is barely working.

    I have been having steadily worse speeds also (Western Cape, Gordons Bay) on my DSL (Afrihost). Two years ago I used to be able to livestream easily at around ~700Kbps (same line, same ISP etc.), it's steadily deteriorated, these days I'm lucky if I can stream at 500Kbps without problems, I've even upgraded to 'unshaped' but it doesn't seem to help much (if at all). I don't know if the problem is with Afrihost or Telkom.

    (*Edit* WA story - their support just helped resolve issue, going to try them to compare speed)

    Yeah none of us are getting the answers we need.

    Everything seems better than 2 weeks back but it still shows itself when i game.

    Why do you have a 2mbs line when the 4mbs unlimited home costs the same? Or are you on capped data.

    So - does any one have half an idea why the internet has gone to hell. Cannot log into Guild Wars 2, YouTube, ShowMax, or DSTV Now - browsing is atrocious - F'ing Hell.

    10 mb Telkom uncapped line.
