MyBroadband’s speed test servers make use of Ookla’s platform and are hosted in Teraco’s vendor-neutral data centres in Johannesburg and Cape Town.

Through NAPAfrica, all network operators at its peering points are provided with a free 1Gbps connection to the MyBroadband speed test platform.

MyBroadband filters speed tests based on network information from Internet service providers, and hosts over 40,000 broadband tests per month.
