Your carrier may forbid this type of usage.

Maybe a call to the carrier would offer info on any restrictions.

It seems to be a South Africa problem. Lots of people on MTN have come here complaining about downloading.

MTN has been having major data problems lately. It's been reported that MTN is sporadically throttling data to the point where data connections fail completely, and supposedly they have even been shutting down data on their network. There's nothing that can be done on the user end. It's up to MTN to sort out their issues.

Vodacom SA is also having the issues, but it seems MTN is worse.
