    To be expected since they let Vodacom users roam on their network, they say it won't affect RAIN user performance but we all know that is a load of bull...

    My speed has dropped from 20Mbps+- (up and down) to around 8Mbps if I'm lucky. Last night dropped to 0.50Mbps.

    Luckily Vumatel started trenching in my area Yesterday so I'm only a month or so away from cancelling this [email protected], had enough of this company and their excuses, pretty soon they'll end up exactly like iBurst did, insignificant and without subscribers, they'll then just start a new company called "Precipitation" or something ridiculous like that and be even crappier.

    Holy crap, that is terrible.

    Mine also slowed down a little bit, but still useful. Pushing about 20-30 down and 20 up.
    And thats the bottom line, cause StoneCold said so...

    Most people have been experiencing this since they launched.. i went over to Cell C ... the speed is not that great.. about 8mbps but it's stable all the time. Happy to sacrifice speed for stability.
