Fastest broadband speeds in South Africa

The latest MyBroadband speed test results show that BitCo’s fibre-to-the-business and Vodacom’s LTE services produced the highest peak broadband speeds in SA.

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 over 40,000 broadband tests per month, the MyBroadband speed test platform is a popular destination for South Africans to gauge their Internet services.
