The speed of an MTN broadband router in South Africa depends on the plan you choose and the coverage in your area. The maximum download speed for MTN’s 4G LTE plans is 150 Mbps, and the maximum upload speed is 50 Mbps. However, your actual speeds may be lower depending on a number of factors, such as the distance from the cell tower, the number of other users on the network, and the weather conditions.
MTN also offers a 5G broadband plan, which has a maximum download speed of 200 Mbps and a maximum upload speed of 80 Mbps. However, 5G coverage is still limited in South Africa, so you may not be able to get these speeds in all areas.
Here is a table of the download and upload speeds for the different MTN broadband plans in South Africa:
|Plan||Download Speed||Upload Speed|
|Uncapped 4G LTE||Up to 150 Mbps||Up to 50 Mbps|
|Capped 4G LTE||Up to 100 Mbps||Up to 30 Mbps|
|Uncapped 5G LTE||Up to 200 Mbps||Up to 80 Mbps|
|Capped 5G LTE||Up to 150 Mbps||Up to 50 Mbps|
To check the coverage in your area, you can use MTN’s coverage checker tool.
Here are some factors that can affect the speed of your MTN broadband router:
- The distance from the cell tower. The closer you are to the cell tower, the faster your speeds will be.
- The number of other users on the network. If there are a lot of other users on the network, your speeds may be slower.
- The weather conditions. If it is raining or snowing, your speeds may be slower.
- The type of router you are using. Some routers are faster than others.
If you are not getting the speeds you expected, you can try the following troubleshooting steps:
- Restart your router.
- Check for firmware updates.
- Move your router closer to the cell tower.
- Contact MTN customer support.
