Is this over WiFi or the mobile network? If on the mobile network, it's because Vodacom is having problems in their 3G rollout and are also throttling users. Do a search on here and you'll see what I mean. You can try shutting off the APN under the mobile network settings, which will force Facebook to go through BIS, and will likely be faster.

Right, but it was during the HSPA+ upgrades that things got buggered. Let me know your findings after the APN disablement.
