I am also having the same issue. CALL CENTRE AGENT (TECHNICAL DEPT OF TELKOM) indicated that the problem may be with the splitter. Try connecting it directly to the box bypassing the splitter.

Had the same problem TELKOM finally discovered rainwater was getting into my connection box outside, they reconnected the wires and I sealed off the box with a silicon sealer.

May be the same problem with my ADSL. It went down shortly after a heavy rainstorm. Will contact Telkom for the 4th time.

My wife was robbed at the Spar atm. The criminals fled with her atm cards. The Standardbank emergency number at the atm did not work, it just kept disconnecting. Needless to say they withdrew the maximum daily limit shortly after.

Had continous problems trying to keep all those copper contacts working,have gone totally wireless for over a year now, Neotel as home phone and 8ta 3g for internet at a lower overall cost than landline adsl.

When the ADSL went down I took a chance connecting my cell phone to the PC. Walla!, within minutes I had internet. I run on Linux. Ever since I have been experimenting with Vodacom and MTN simcards in the phone. The only disadvantage compared to ADSL, is that I could not succeed to do remote terminal sessions or expose my webserver at home to the internet, which is a fairly simple matter on ADSL. As far as wireless contracts are concerned, I think it is better to just buy a simcard for R12, purchase a databundle and enjoy. It works like a charm. No contracts for me anymore.

Until now, I did not have problems with Telkom and ADSL. The service was quick and the internet stable over time. If they can get their a**** in gear and repair my connection I will stay with ADSL.
