Vodacom vs MTN in the Free State

MyBroadband recently tested the mobile network quality in the Free State as part of its countrywide network testing project.

The MyBroadband mobile network testing project is conducted in partnership with Afristay and Samsung , and provides a comprehensive look at cellular network quality in South Africa.

Coverage and data tests are run using the MyBroadband Speed Test App on our Samsung Galaxy S9 smartphone test bench.

SIMs from Vodacom, MTN, Cell C, and Telkom are used in the Galaxy S9 phones, and performance tests are conducted at regular intervals.

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

Welkom to Bloemfontein

The latest route was from Gauteng, through Welkom, to Bloemfontein – with thousands of speed tests conducted.

We then calculated the Network Quality Score for the region, which took download speed, upload speed, and latency into account.
