Vodacom vs MTN in Rustenburg and Brits

MyBroadband recently tested the mobile network quality in the North West as part of its countrywide mobile 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 throughput tests are conducted using the MyBroadband Speed Test App, running 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 while driving.

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