Two speed tests done by an i phone 6 shows that Safaricom 4G is faster on the download link but almost similar speeds on the upload link. Telkom is making great progress. They should work on their network overall
Telkom is crap. I have been a loyal user of Orange/Telkom for years and ever since they switched on their 4G, service has been terrible.
First, Because their 4g network is not everywhere, I’m always having trouble switching back to 4g after being dropped to 3g. This is not the case on Safcon.
Secondly, the link keeps dropping even when network is still up. To get around this, I have to continuously run a ping service. Also, on occassion, network strength disappears in totality then come back full strength.
Also, their 4g wifi routers I think are defective. When the above happens and network is cycled, DNS resolution no longer works. I have opted to manually configuring my devices to use the Google DNS service.
