Internet connection dropping AFTER 2ND FAULT LOG

So i have logged a fault 3 times now (third one today)!


My connection keeps dropping every few minutes, so much so that I am unable to run a business!


My patience has run out and am tired of holding on the line for 30 mins to get to a consultant that just tells me the fault has been logged.


There hasnt been a technician to my office at all since the first fault (In Dec).


The call center told me today that there will be someone at my office but still nothing!!


Is there any way of getting this fixed without waiting a year for anything to happen??


I have spoken to my ISP (Crystal Web) and everything is fine on their side, I have also replaced my router to check if that was the problem.


After the second fault was "Resolved" my connection was fine for litteraly a day!!


Any help would be much appreciated


I have contacted telkom via phone and tried their chat thing as well as mailed the guy on mybroadband
