Ever been probed? One definition of probe is ‘a blunt-ended surgical instrument used for exploring a wound or part of the body’. Sounds kind of cold and invasive! Rest assured, while we won’t be probing you with anything, our app does just that when trying to fix your slow internet in South Africa. Phew!

Slow internet in South Africa
Let’s get you flying again

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.
