Fastest download speeds in South Africa – Over 80 ISPs and networks ranked

MyBroadband’s latest speed test results show that Vox Telecom achieved the highest peak broadband speed in South Africa.

MyBroadband’s new HTML 5 speed test servers 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.

The new MyBroadband speed test platform was designed to be lightweight and easy to use on mobile devices.

Over 55,000 speed tests have been conducted on the MyBroadband speed test platform since it launched in March.

ISP results

Many of the top speed test results peaked close to 1Gbps, and it is assumed these speed tests were performed on gigabit fibre connections.

Vox Telecom topped the list on 907Mbps, followed by CISP on 864Mbps and Optinet on 807Mbps.

The table below shows the peak speeds achieved on prominent South African Internet service provider networks.
