MyBroadband is giving away R5,000 in prizes to encourage you to conduct a mobile speed test using MyBroadband’s Android and iOS speed test apps.
MyBroadband’s ad-free Android and iOS Speed Test apps are used by thousands of South Africans to test the performance of their mobile networks.
MyBroadband’s Speed Test platform was developed specifically for South Africa, and all tests are run to independent servers hosted in Teraco’s vendor-neutral data centres.
Through NAPAfrica, all network operators present at its peering points are provided with a free 10Gbps connection to the MyBroadband Speed Test platform.
Data from these speed tests is then used to provide an accurate view of the performance of local networks, including Vodacom, MTN, Cell C, Telkom, and Rain.
Win prizes worth R5,000
By running a speed test, you stand a chance to win prizes worth R5,000. Here’s what you should do:
- Test – Perform a speed test using the app on your mobile network (not Wi-Fi – these results do not count towards the giveaway).
- Post – Post your download speed, location, and operator in the forum here.
- Win – You can enter 10 times (each entry must be for a new speed test).
- You can win a bonus prize by rating the MyBroadband Android Speed Test app.
Please note that mobile data used for speed tests on your mobile network will count towards your usage allowance, and these speed tests can use a lot of data when testing a high-speed network.
The good news is that MTN has zero-rated the MyBroadband Speed Test app, which means MTN subscribers will not be charged for the data used when running speed tests.
The giveaway winners will be selected and announced on 1 November 2019.
