Above you can see the latest Cell C speed test averages. The results were gathered from people doing their testing using our tool. The average download speed on Cell C internet currently stands are 20250 Kbps. That’s about 20 Mbps or 2.5 megabytes per second.
It’s important to understand the distinction between megabit per second, Mbps, and MBps, megabyte per second. But is the Cell C speed test average good enough? Let’s look at Netflix. A lot of South Africans have been streaming on the platform.
