South Africans want to switch to Afrihost – Survey

South Africans who are happy with their existing ISP are most likely to be Afrihost subscribers – while those who are looking to switch from their current ISP are looking to move to Afrihost.

These are two of the key findings of MyBroadband’s 2022 Readership Survey.

MyBroadband is the largest IT publication in South Africa and is read by CEOs, CTOs, business owners, IT managers, and purchasing decision-makers.

The MyBroadband Readership Survey was conducted in August 2022 and completed by 1,869 MyBroadband readers.

94% of these readers are purchasing decision makers or influencers in their households, so this survey provides excellent insight into the minds of South African consumers.

The ISP section of the survey found that Afrihost is the most widely used ISP within MyBroadband readers’ homes.

It is closely followed by Telkom, while Rain took the third spot.

Other popular Internet providers included Vodacom, MWEB, Vox, Cool Ideas, and MTN.
