    Normally I wouldn't complain about my internet, but these days its HORRIBLE.
    I have wireless Internet from Level 7. A company in Centurion.
    4mb Line, uncapped and was told unshaped.
    Used to be very happy with their service, but lately its been terrible.
    My download speeds are 3-15kb/s during the day, and close to 400kb/s between 0:00 and 07:00.......... (it was never like this, they say it is how they have always worked)
    In my CSGO games lately I get a constant ping of 250-350ms spiking to 700+ sometimes. Even getting loss of about 30% sometimes
    Does not make gaming fun at all

    I'm using a WISP in Polokwane since the Telkom line to my house is pretty much useless. They weren't insulated correctly when put underground...

    Anyway now with my WISP I can't connect to the PSN because the IP address has been blocked by Sony. No idea why though, but it looks like other people are having the same problem around the world.

    So I have to wait for my WISP to assign me a new IP address.

    So is this a thread where we brag about our terrible internet, or is this a terrible thread where we brag about our internet? Here's both cases for me:



    My download speed is borked tonight.

    After years of crappy ping and millions of messages to Telkom, they've done something and I have this result 24/7:

    I have an uncapped , Afrihost 4mb line in Woodstock, Cape Town. Had it up for 5 months, already had a total of +-2 months down time due to a number of reasons. 1) a-holez stealing copper wires 2) Disturbance on my line that apparently kills my internet. Afrihost cannot give me any sort of refund "because its all fine from their side" and Telkom was so kind to reduce my bill by R35 ( thank goodness ). I honestly think it depends on your area and also how much you get throttled/shaped. On another note, when its working fine I get REALLY good speeds for a 4mb line, but its EXTREMELY inconsistent. I can't get my head around what the best solution is because it seems to be different for everyone. Thinking about going Capped 150gb with Afrihost. There's no harm in trying because Afrihost lets you switch between services as you please.
