iPhone users enjoy faster Wi-Fi speeds in South Africa

MyBroadband’s free Speed Test app for Android and iOS gives smartphone users the ability to test their mobile and Wi-Fi connection speeds at home, work, or out and about.

MyBroadband’s Speed Test app is ad-free, and allows users to test the download speed, upload speed, and latency of their Internet connection.

The app also provides a map of where users conduct their tests, and makes it possible to record and export the test results.

The MyBroadband Speed Test app has been installed by over 15,000 users, who conduct tens of thousands of tests each month.

A number of these tests are conducted over Wi-Fi connections, which provides an overview of the home and work Internet speeds users have access to.

Android vs iOS

The results show that iOS users enjoy higher average Wi-Fi speeds, with lower latency.

With iPhones and iPads generally more expensive than Android devices, it can be speculated that iPhone owners have faster – and more expensive – broadband connections at home.

It can also be assumed that iPhone users typically have more senior positions and work at companies which pay better, which in turn translates into better work broadband connections.

The table below provides an overview of the Wi-Fi speed test results.

Android vs iOS
OS iOS Android
Average download speed over Wi-Fi 14.986Mbps 9.324Mbps
Average upload speed over Wi-Fi 9.916Mbps 5.432Mbps
Average latency over Wi-Fi 61ms 89ms
