I know this article refers to Gauteng, but they've definitely improved something in Cape Town. My data speeds have significantly improved over the past couple of weeks.
In my suburb in Richards Bay, Cell C has the 2nd fastest data network. I did a test yesterday with 4 devices - Samsung S3, Samsung Note 3, iPhone 4 and iPad mini, all placed next to each other, and all doing speed tests through the same server at the same time. The results were as follows (not exact figures, just going from memory)
1. Telkom mobile - more than 9.0 Mbps download, 3.5 Mbps upload
2. Cell C - 3.8 Mbps download, 1.8 Mbps upload
3. MTN - 0.5 Mbps download, 0.16 Mbps upload
4. Vodacom - 0.15 Mbps download, 0.03 Mpbs upload
Makes you wonder - the two biggest networks performed the worst...BY FAR !!! In fact their performance was pathetic...
I bet if you swap sims and devices you would get different results.
Agreed. No complaints for any area in Cape Town. Getting consistent 3G signal pretty much everywhere.
