    Lots of people still had internet in KZN including me so not the entire country

    From what I saw it seemed to be Gauteng people complaining the most

    At least I know why it happened.
    I thought Telkom broke the internet or ADSL rather

    According to: http://www.telkom.co.za/checkadsl/
    20Mbps is the max speed in my area.

    I thought I had a problem, later found out about the whole outage/upgrade or whatever.

    Checked at home and the office. Home says 10mb is now available and the office 20mb. Only problem is that my line stats at home aren't great so I don't think the upgrade will work and I don't want to risk Telkom messing with my line
