The latest MyBroadband Speed Test App results reveal that KwaZulu-Natal enjoys the highest mobile broadband speeds in South Africa.
MyBroadband’s Speed Test App for Android and iOS gives smartphone users the ability to test their mobile data connection.
The app is ad-free and allows users to test the download speed, upload speed, and latency of their mobile connection.
The MyBroadband Speed Test App has been installed by 20,000 smartphone users, who conduct tens of thousands of tests each month.
The Q4 2017 speed test results show that the average mobile download speed in KwaZulu-Natal was 31Mbps, followed by the Free State on 27Mbps, and the Eastern Cape on 26Mbps.
Three provinces had average speeds of less than 15Mbps – the Northern Cape, Mpumalanga, and Limpopo.
The table below provides an overview of the average mobile broadband speeds per province in South Africa.
It should be noted that the latency in Gauteng and the Western Cape can be expected to be lower, as MyBroadband’s Speed Test servers are located in Johannesburg and Cape Town.
