On 5 March 2016, MyBroadband set out to test mobile broadband speeds in Johannesburg, Midrand, and Tshwane.
To test the mobile speeds, we used four Huawei Mate S smartphones, which support most mobile technologies – including TDD LTE and FDD LTE.
As part of the tests, MyBroadband tested the mobile speeds at the head offices of Vodacom, MTN, Cell C, and Telkom.
This was to see if the mobile operators could defend their home base by achieving the best performance at their headquarters.
Home base challenge results
The results show that Cell C had by far the best speed at its head office, easily outperforming its competitors.
At the other end, Telkom and Cell C easily beat Vodacom on its home turf at Vodacom World.
The infographic below shows the mobile broadband performance of the operators at their respective head offices.
A big thanks to Huawei for providing MyBroadband with four Mate S smartphones for the tests.
