In May 2010 Ookla, the global leader in web-based network diagnostic applications, launched their Net Index, a site designed to foster public research, analysis and discussion of broadband penetration and performance.
South Africa forms part of the broadband index, and currently ranks 85th worldwide in terms of download speeds.

Ookla’s Broadband Index drills down the average speeds to suburbs within a country, and according to the Speedtest.net results obtained by analyzing test data from 184,442 tests between 14 November 2010 and 13 December 2010, Soweto is the best broadband suburb with an average downlink speed of 4.22 Mbps.
Roodepoort is placed second with an average speed of 4 Mbps and Midrand third with a downlink speed of 3.83 Mbps.
The following table provides an overview of the Top 10 broadband suburbs in South Africa according to the Ookla Net Index. It should be noted that city ranking requires at least 1,000 unique IP addresses for a given city or suburb.
