MyBroadband’s Q1 2016 broadband survey results show that Vumatel, Neotel, and Telkom’s fibre services were rated as the best broadband services in South Africa.

The survey tested users’ opinions of their broadband service, and asked them how likely they were to recommend their broadband product to family and friends.
