South African Wi-Fi Speed battle – Android vs iPhone

MyBroadband’s free Speed Test App for Android and iOS gives smartphone users the ability to test their mobile and Wi-Fi connection speeds.

The Speed Test App is ad-free and allows users to test the download speed, upload speed, and latency of their Internet connection.

The MyBroadband Speed Test App has been installed by over 16,000 users, who conduct tens of thousands of tests each month.

A number of these tests are conducted over Wi-Fi connections, which provides an overview of the home and work Internet speeds users have access to.

Android vs iOS

The October 2017 Speed Test results show that iOS users enjoy higher average Wi-Fi speeds, with lower latency, compared to Android users.

With iPhones and iPads generally more expensive than Android devices, it can be assumed that iPhone users typically have access to more expensive – and faster – Internet connections.

The table below provides an overview of the Speed Test results.

Android vs iOS
OS iOS Android
Average download speed over Wi-Fi 15.608Mbps 9.128Mbps
Average upload speed over Wi-Fi 10.850Mbps 4.883Mbps
Average latency over Wi-Fi 68ms 96ms
