Fastest ADSL ISPs in South Africa

The latest MyBroadband speed test results show that Axxess had the fastest average ADSL and VDSL speeds over the past month.

MyBroadband’s speed test servers make use of Ookla’s platform and are hosted in Teraco’s vendor-neutral data centres in Johannesburg and Cape Town.

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

MyBroadband filters speed tests based on network information from Internet service providers, and hosts over 40,000 tests per month.

XDSL had the fastest average download speed on ADSL, but had too few results to be accurately compared.

Cybersmart had the highest average VDSL download speed, but its results were also based on relatively few tests.
