Hi. It's seems my powertel can't connect to sites like Facebook gmail and even techzim (currently accessing from iPad). However Im able to access sites like zol, zimbojam and yoafrica which I guess are locally hosted.

Any idea as to why this happening?

Thanks.

Something have gone wrong in Botswana, they seem to be linked through telone thru some bandwidth renting maybe. Their presents is coming or registering from Mauritius(maybe satellite) at the moment not  BT(Botswana Telecoms) there preferred direct link.

Here is some interpretation to do for those interested:

ln the case of international or Botswana link loss, what PowerTel or any other ISP do is give business and high paying customer more preferential service like internet access than people who are like you and me.

So your service will be a hit and miss untill they restore full service. So for now be prepared to be sold donkeys and stories from far places whilst there engineers are ''working hard'' to restore the connection.
