well, there are factors. This cable issue has us all from DU routed eastwards right now with only 20% running through 1 cable westwards. You will get speed degredation.
Also, both operators are throttling any vpn, p2p and download speeds to ensure that regular browsing is not affected.
As far as I know as of now, the cable issue off egypt is still not rectified 100%. If its speed you want, you need to pay (price we pay for duapoloies
Depending on what you want, the speeds are there but you cant judge based on the issues now. Being here for 8 years, i can tell you that when things are 100%, the speed is super fast. Then again, at MediaCity, i am not sure if they also curtail speeds as both residential and businesses operate from one area.
Wait till Jan 1 and then check. Also, you might have an issue with your IPV box at home. I had this and due to a faulty board, my speed was terrible. Once Du replaced it, it came back super fast. If speed is the need, check their packages. I agree, bandwidth on 2MB is poor but that is the bulk of what customers are on.
If you are a hardcore net user, you will need to go for higher as they dedicate far more bandwidth for that.
