Re: internet is so slow

@hassan1 sounds to me like you have been throttled. On an uncapped account there is a FUP (Fair Usage Policy). There is no set threshold, so on a 2mb line it is roughly 100 - 120Gb in a month before being throttled. Once you exceed this they throttle your speed down.


Maybe tried a capped account. Telkom internet has  a double data promotion on, so a 50Gb account is actually a 100Gb. With capped you get Nightsurfer, so schedule your downloading between 24:00 - 07:00 and this does not add onto your 100Gb cap
