The latest MyBroadband Speed Test statistics show that Axxess, Cybersmart, and MWEB offer the lowest local latency on ADSL connections.

When looking at 20Mbps and 40Mbps VDSL connections, MWEB, Cybersmart, and Internet Solutions reigned supreme.

MyBroadband’s speed test service uses Ookla’s platform, and is hosted in Teraco’s vendor-neutral hosting 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 speed tests based on network information from the service providers.
