The 2013 MyBroadband Awards winners were announced today, with Telkom and Afrihost winning most of the categories.

The annual MyBroadband Awards have become a benchmark for excellence in the local broadband and telecoms market. The reason is that consumers, and not a small group of judges, say who must win.
