Telkom Kenya Speeds at 400Mbps

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?

That was what I thought.

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

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

I would never alight that bus

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

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

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,

I don’t trust that test.

I will try to do that.

Why would it be different?

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

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

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.
