Top Internet speed tests in SA: November 2011

Ookla recently released their November 2011 Speedtest.net data, revealing that the highest speed test performed on their speed test servers was 930,167kbps.

This speed test came from Web Africa, which tested speeds to its own sponsored Speedtest.net server in Cape Town. Web Africa was also responsible for the second highest speed, 911,385kbps.

It was not only Web Africa which put their core network speeds to the test. Vodacom and the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR) also recorded numerous results over 700kbps in November.

It should be noted that these results are not from end-user broadband connections, and should therefore be interpreted as an interesting indication of core network speeds rather than an indication of actual last-mile network  performance.

The following table shows the highest South African Speedtest.net results for November 2011.
