Best broadband speeds in South Africa

MyBroadband’s latest speed test results show that fibre providers SEACOM, BitCo, and iConnect have the highest average broadband speeds in the country.

MyBroadband’s speed test service uses Ookla’s platform, and is hosted in Teraco’s vendor-neutral hosting facilities in Johannesburg and Cape Town.

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

To ensure that only valid results are recorded, MyBroadband filters speed tests based on network information from the service providers.
