1. Put yourself in the flying seat

Slow internet in South Africa can be a real deflater and sometimes dealing with a technical consultant over the phone can be even more frustrating (not our consultants of course). Please hold, please reboot, did you leave it unplugged for 15 seconds, okay great, please hold, “What? Still?”

With the RocketNet Probe app you have the control, in your hands, in real-time, and you invite our technical support representative into your space, in your time for troubleshooting and running various network tests to try and determine what slow internet issues you may be experiencing and how it can be resolved.
