Telkom Kenya Speeds at 400Mbps


#1

I recently did a speed test using the wifi on a rongai bound matatu(ChristHood). The speeds reached a maximum of about 400Mbps. I did many speed tests to confirm if this was true. The main tests that I did were at Nairobi West, Langata, bomas and at Tumaini rongai.I asked the makanga which isp they were using and I was told it was Telkom. Has anyone here experienced such speeds?

Damn! Is the bus connected to an underground fiber cable?


#3

That was what I thought.


#4

My gosh this is unbelievable. And that ping time, that server must be somewhere else…


#5

Sa zile HSPA on Telkom seems like a joke, these speeds are on a whole other level :raised_hands:


#6

I would never alight that bus


#7

Waaaah which bus is this? almost half a gig of bandwidth on the move…uchawi bana,the latency is terrible but i would still tap that anyday…boss hungeshuka bana


#8

if HSPA can do that,what about 4G LTE…gigabit speeds…we dont need 5G,its already freaking here with us lol


#9

Eish… Hii nimekubali kumbe hawa watu are capable of giving us real speed na wanatuchezea tu


#10

It was a nissan…I think it was called ChristHood because that was the name of the wifi.


#11

That must have been from a 4G+ SIM card (I assume it was inside a Telkom router which is 4G capable)


#12

I am dumbfounded…


#13

400Mbps? I noticed you did the test on your browser. Next time board the same matt and use the app to do the speedtest instead, the results will be different,


#14

I don’t trust that test.


#15

I will try to do that.


#16

Why would it be different?


#17

With known WiFi limitations, I am a bit skeptical about that test as well. Maybe with time we can debunk it.

@Lukirdem Could you let us know which device you used?

The one they sell caps out at 150Mbps


#18

App speedtests are accurate, mobile browser speedtests mislead alot due to a myriad of factors, the above test is an example.


#19

Hmm… interesting

I was in a matatu, I did not get to see the router. I used my phone lenovo a 2010 for the test.[quote=“Krizwech, post:18, topic:1352”]

I normally use a browser called Puffin browser that has flash player(chrome dosent). Maybe that browser caused an issue there.
