    already ordered a cheap replacement, but it really sucks to be without internet at home if you've become so used to it.
    I have a backup router so tested with the backup. It is as if there is no line plugged into the router. Doesn't even attempt to synch..

    Yeah, it is terrible.. Doesn't help that mobile internet signal is also not the best in my house..

    My contact that helped me last time I had a line issue responded now. Apparently major cable theft. Our whole area has no service. That should at least mean that they will get to it soon..

    Mobile internet for now but we have terrible signal..

    More than a month later and still no DSL. Another upstream cable stolen. Three whole suburbs in town down. My contact is hopeful that it might be resolved in next week but I think he is being optimistic..

    Its such BS we have to jump through hoops to get basic service.

    I popped into a larger shop over weekend, was looking for a specific item. Couldn't find it so went looking for help. Found 3 employees basically having a discussion (SHOUTING) at the back near the store room. Asked them if they could help and what I was looking for. Straight away I get told that they do not sell it. I turn around to leave and start walking, and out the corner of my eye I see what I am looking for not less than 3 metres from where I asked them. They just don't give a damn at all.

    They did the same thing in my area, back in 2017 we just found that there was no service in the area and no information regarding what was going on. It took them months to finally confirm that they had indeed suspended services for this zone. I cancelled my adsl line immediatelly in November 2017 and switched to a lte router last year (Webafrica) unfortunately my area does not support lte so I only get like 1mbps speed sometimes (most times I can barely connect to the internet). This past week I found that my mother had been receiving messages from Telkom (why they're contacting her instead of me, I don't know and the lady "helping" me could'nt give me a answer either) urging us to pay them outstanding fees and when I went to one of their branches I found out that Telkom had only cancelled my account in 2018 August (i think), I'm currently awaiting a call from them regarding this matter.

    They also siad there's no way they'll go back to adsl or fibre for my area as well. I just hate that there's no infrastructure for lte/ wireless but still we get forced to use it. I'm also starting to think this whole cable theft excuse is convenient bs
