Highest ADSL and fibre broadband speeds in South Africa

The latest MyBroadband speed test results show that Seacom’s fibre service produced the highest peak broadband speed in South Africa.

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.

Over the last month, 66,725 broadband tests were performed – which provides a good overview of broadband speeds in the country.
