    Default Best ADSL, FTTH, and Mobile ISPs in South Africa

    Best ADSL, FTTH, and Mobile ISPs in South Africa

    MyBroadband’s latest broadband survey shows that Cybersmart, Crystal Web, and Axxess are the best Internet service providers in South Africa.

    The Q1 2017 broadband survey was completed by 2,463 South African broadband subscribers. These users were typically IT professionals and tech-savvy individuals.

    Curious: Telkom is bottom of the pile here but according to MyBB it is the most-used ISP by Techies.

    What gives?

    According to network quality:

    Would MyBB consider using something like: https://datatables.net/examples/adva...ttributes.html for their tables? Quite useful for a lot of things.

    We consider them mobile providers (network and ISP in one), and will be ranked in a separate article.

    Understood. However they are all competing in the same space so will be useful to have a comparative table after your separate article please.

    I'm sorry I didn't see the survey and contribute. I had a pesky billing issue with Vox but network quality has been really good until last year (on the 50mbps fibre product) - recently slipping a bit.

    I would have liked to have had the ADSL / FTTH / WISP breakdown by percentage on which the responses were based included here.

    Look how far Afrihost dropped, wonder if it had anything to do with that capped uncapped promo coming to an end.

    Glad to see Crystal Web's network quality being recognised.

    Yeah, wtf? Why would they win by such a margin for value for money? There is nothing on their website that indicates that they offer the best value around.

    accepted, but from a consumer point of view surely they are selling the same thing?
