The 'Rose. Vokkol "Prim" about it....
Hi all,

What is considered a good connection speed and what standard (post link of page for all to test) is reliable?

I used mybroadband's page:

Ping: 17ms
Download: 36.35Mbps
Upload: 16.1Mbps

Busy testing a new 4G wireless system on Huwawei B618 router. SIM card based.

Any other test sites to compare against?

This was JHB - CPT.

Anything above 2MB you can live with, 4MB is good, anything over consider yourself lucky for home use.

It doesn't always use the closest tower to you, it might pick up one further away sometimes

I see a lot of you guys are on LTE routers - what uncapped packages are you running?
