MTN claimed the title of South Africa’s fastest network in Q1 2020, according to data from MyBroadband.

The publisher on Monday unveiled its latest mobile network quality report, which took data from more than 310 000 users of its speed test app in South Africa between 1 January and 31 March.

The results are pretty one-sided.

MTN users achieved an average download speed of 43.47 Mbps and an average upload speed of 14.4 Mbps.

Vodacom ranked second with average downloads and uploads clocked at 29.79 Mbps and 10.77 Mbps respectively.

Telkom, while ranking last on the publisher’s network quality score, achieved the third highest download speeds at 19.11 Mbps. It saw upload speeds of just 4.49 Mbps, the lowest of all five networks tested.

Data-only network Rain clocked in at 15.2 Mbps, the slowest of the networks, but did achieve the lowest latency at 29 ms.
