Zimbabwe’s (Internet Service Provider’s) ISP’s upload speeds are the fastest in Southern Africa and the third position in Africa, while our download speeds come second in Southern Africa and seventh in Africa, and take 98th position in the world.

The speed you get from your ISP depends on how deep your pocket is.

you can get anything from 64Kbps all the way to 155Mbps.

so if i pay for say 1mbps i get that or its something else
commented by Expert (16.7k points)
if you purchase 1Mbps CIR you will get 1Mbps.  If you purchase an UPTO 1Mbps you may get 1Mbps but are not always going to get 1Mbps.

what about speed shaping on business hours
commented by Expert (16.7k points)
The above pricing is not shaped what you pay for is what you get.  So if you get a 1Mbps link it will always run at 1Mbps.  Thats the nice thing about dedicated internet vs shared.

the problem with our ISP is that they advertise dreams instead of realities
