Despite Complaints SA Enjoys the Second Fastest Mobile and Broadband in Africa

Although we grumble and complain, according to the Speedtest Global Index of mobile and fixed broadband speeds from around the world, SA has the second-fastest fixed broadband speeds in Africa, Ghana ranked number one on the continent and 79th globally, with a speed of 53.28 Mbps. Egypt ranked third in Africa. The index measures the global internet speed, and it looks at the internet speed of about 181 countries. Fixed broadband is an ultra-fast business internet connection that beams through radio signals. Fixed broadband encompasses any high-speed data transmission to a fixed location (residence or business) using a variety of technologies, including cable, DSL, fibre optics, and wireless.
