The latest MyBroadband Speed Test statistics show that Vodacom and MTN’s mobile services offer the lowest local latency.

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 service providers.

The following table shows how the different mobile and wireless broadband services in South Africa compare.
