Vodacom has claimed top spot in MyBroadband’s 2016 War Drive, which tested the download speeds of South Africa’s mobile operators’ mobile data networks.
The tests were conducted around Gauteng’s main business and residential areas between Johannesburg and Pretoria – using four Huawei Mate S smartphones and a prepaid SIM card from Vodacom, Telkom, Cell C, and MTN.
A speed test app was used to test data speeds, and tests across the four networks were conducted simultaneously (while stationary).
Vodacom took first place in the “average download speed category”, and also earned 6 out of 10 places in the “top 10 download speeds” category.
Telkom took second place in average download speeds, with Cell C and MTN coming third and fourth respectively.
