lovely lte speeds even on my uncapped lte

I'm not a fan of uncapped in general but uncapped on the lte is another ball game. Currently sitting on 523gigs usage and still getting my +-57meg speeds.  Wow Telkom has really out done them self's.

Re: lovely lte speeds even on my uncapped lte

not bad @Specialist, what makes up this data? Are you doing NZB's, Torrents, Streaming (Netflix, YouTube, Showmax etc..). What times are you downloading?

Re: lovely lte speeds even on my uncapped lte

You are extremely lucky! I have been around my entire house, even outside on the patio, plugging in the router, turning it on, holding my breath with an ever hopeful heart of getting any kind of stable signal....I would even be happy for 4G, possily even 3G at this point!!! I am utterly frustrated with this deal!! We were assured that we would get good signal in our area - well this has yet to be seen! If anyone is looking at this deal, make 200% sure that you have LTE signal where you live! It will add years to your life.

Re: lovely lte speeds even on my uncapped lte

Hi Specialist

I am in the Albany, Hillcrest area. We were assured that there is LTE signal there and the coverage maps show this too. The light on the router shines teal but no signal lines. Then it goes to blue with 1 or 2 signal lines - this lasts for about 2 seconds to a minute then goes red. I have tried every point in my house where there is a plug, upstairs and downstairs. I have tired without any external antenna, with 1 antenna with both anntena and then pointing them in every conceivable direction. I am heading back to the store today for some kind of resolution.

Hi Jen

Did they not provide you with an antenna for outside? This is really scary what is happening to you. Hope they sort you out...
