Guide To Speed Tests

If you’re experiencing a slow internet connection, the first thing you should do is run a speed test. Speed tests are a good way to start troubleshooting, and they only take about a minute to complete.

Speed tests measure your current connection’s maximum speed—how fast your device can upload and download information—by accessing nearby test servers. The test mimics your online activity in a controlled setting by downloading sample files and recording speeds. 

These tests are a quick way to single out your internet performance as a variable in the overall quality of your connection. In other words, they can help you figure out if the issue is on the end or yours.

Speed tests won’t tell you your absolute internet speed, but they will give you a close approximation. Also, different tests highlight different aspects of your connection. Your speed test results should match what’s stated in your service plan.
