Internet Disservice Provision

Joe, you said:

When we say 2Mbps, it’s 2Mbps.

Except that your upstream is Verizon who seem to have major routing problems, and have done so for months now. Connecting to SA sites who are on Internet Solutions has always been slow at best, with timeouts at worst. Traffic via Verizon to TENET’s Cape Town servers is routed via Joburg and back.

Amobia’s service is very good in all ways except one: The actual Internet service.

Please Joe, do more than “prod” Verizon. Vote with your wallet before I do.

I am an Amobia client, and I have a story to tell. Don’t make me tell it.
