The January 2016 MyBroadband speed test results show that Seacom’s fibre service has the highest average speed, followed by fibre provider Bitco.

MyBroadband’s speed test servers use Ookla’s NetGauge platform, and are hosted in Teraco’s vendor-neutral data centres to ensure a neutral testing environment.

Through NapAfrica, all network operators present at its peering points are provided with a free 1Gbps connection to the MyBroadband speed test platform.

With 53,269 broadband tests last month, the MyBroadband speed test platform is a popular destination for South Africans to gauge their Internet services.
