Been with Afrihost for a long time.
Recently my average upload speed is below 10kbs and I am fed up.
I have a 2 mb line and of course it was not always so slow. It was normally 30-40kbs and now if I get speed higher than 20kb I should feel extremely blessed. For those who are not sure what we use upload speed for, well it is basically everything. To go little bit more in detail if you skype call with somebody and your upload speed is low they will hear a massive delay while you will hear them perfectly fine because your download speed is not effected and any way. You can also experience extremely slow browsing etc..
I have on numerous occasions mailed Afrihost ask them to please assist with this problem. Needless to say they did not resolve this. The first answer I received from them said the following (please note this a employee working their ) I too have a 2 mb line and is also receive the same upload speed so please understand this is normal. This is total rubbish a 2mb line should defiantly not have an average upload speed of less than 10kb. So either this person is lying or he/she has no internet knowledge or Afrihost is total rip off with their 2 mb lines. I tried my best to settle this matter in email but nothing was resolved.
So let settle this: Afirhsot can you please post on this question what average upload speed one should expect if they purchases a 2mb line from you.
Now everybody reading this can see what they should except from afrihost. No more lies. If you would like to check your speed please use this: http://speedtest.net/
If anybody else experiencing similar issue please comment I would love to hear it.
