Re: LTE Antenna Installati​on

Received my router and antenna mid-June. Haven’t been able to use the service as the signal inside my house is too weak, I do get signal from time to time but it’s so slow, not even 1mbps download when I do manage to connect. I've been charged R1538 so far for a service I cannot use. I've been calling their call centres at least 2-3 times a week and all I get is "we apologize for the inconvenience, we will escalate the matter to our technicians" they say that it’s out of their hands and there’s nothing they can do. Their technicians only ever tried calling me once mid-July when I was on another call and I couldn’t take his call, I called the call centre and explained the situation and they said that they will escalate again. I've left numerous messages for supervisors and managers at their call centre to get back to me, no one ever does. I need this antenna installed as I cannot do the installation on my own.

Re: LTE Antenna Installati​on

A Telkom technician installed the Antenna 2 weeks ago. The guy did a very rushed bad job as I could not be there to supervise him, he did not install the antenna cables neatly, he just ran the cable in the sides of the roof, all this cable has now eventually fallen off and looks very untidy, he could have at least mounted the cable somehow so its secure. However that's not my big problem, my problem is with the speed and signal, after the installation was done, the technician informed me that his job is to get 5 bars on the router and I should contact Telkom regarding the bad speeds. I contacted Telkom 2 weeks ago and I'm still waiting for someone to get back to me. At least once every 2nd day I have to reset the router as the speeds drop below 1mpbs and most of the time there is no network connection. The speeds at off peak and during peak are very unstable, with speed test I get at peak times 1mbps-3mbps and off peak between 3mbps-20mbps. The speeds are very unstable, on some days I'll have good fast internet and the next days will be slow as hell, can’t even stream YouTube properly. I don’t mind the speeds fluctuating a bit(under 5mbps) but when it drops by 15mbps, its unacceptable. I've called Telkom a good few times now and like the last time, they say they will escalate the problem, I guess it’s another 2 months of waiting again to get this problem fixed.
