The best ADSL and VDSL ISPs in SA

South Africa ISPs

The latest MyBroadband speed test results show that Vox Telecom and Internet Solutions produce the highest average ADSL and VDSL speeds respectively.

MyBroadband’s speed test service uses Ookla’s platform, and is hosted in Teraco’s vendor-neutral facilities in Johannesburg and Cape Town.

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

To ensure that only valid results are recorded, MyBroadband filters the broadband speed tests based on network information from the Internet service providers.

Over the last 30 days, over 16,000 valid ADSL and VDSL tests were performed using the MyBroadband speed test server.

The results show that Internet Solutions had the highest average VDSL speed at 19.18Mbps. Vox Telecom reigned supreme in the ADSL space with 4.41Mbps.

    Great to see afrihost is not on this list, as it would have been a complete lie!

    Afrihost is in a very weird place at the moment. Some really enjoy Afrihost’s service while others completely despise it. But their speeds really do seem to be suspect at the moment.

    The quality of an ISP depends on more than just speed. There’s reliability, price, ease of getting help and setup issues. These may be more important than ultimate speed.
