The Garden Route – MTN vs Vodacom

MyBroadband recently launched its country-wide mobile network testing project in partnership with Afristay and Samsung.

The project will provide a comprehensive look at cellular network quality in South Africa, and includes controlled drive tests in South Africa’s major metros, secondary cities, large towns, and national roads.

Thousands of tests will be conducted using the MyBroadband Speed Test App, running on a test bench of Samsung Galaxy S9 smartphones.

A SIM from each of the major mobile operators – Vodacom, MTN, Cell C, and Telkom – are used in the Galaxy S9 phones, and performance tests are conducted at regular intervals while driving.

MyBroadband’s speed test servers are hosted in Teraco’s vendor-neutral data centres to ensure a neutral testing environment.

Through NAPAfrica, all network operators present at its peering points are provided with a free 10Gbps connection to the MyBroadband Speed Test platform.
