Are you getting the internet speeds promised by your provider? By using our bandwidth testing tool to see real-time results on both your upload and download speeds you can determine the true speed of your internet connection.
Understanding Your Results
Your ping rate is a measure (in milliseconds) of how long it takes for data to pass from your computer to another machine in the network.
2. Download Speed
Your download speed is a measure (in megabits per second) of the speeds at which data that is stored online is downloaded to your computer. The higher the rate of Mbps the faster your download speed. A high download rate is required for data-intensive activities online such as streaming 4K video.
3. Upload Speed
Also measured in megabits per second (Mbps), your upload speed refers to the speed at which data stored on your computer is uploaded to the internet. A high upload speed is required for high-quality video calling or sharing large files.
Speed Test Tips
To gain the most accurate reports, please follow these instructions:
- Restart both your computer and your modem/router beforehand.
- Avoid using other online services during the test. A speed test will be inaccurate if other devices are using your bandwidth.
- Clear your browser’s cache.
- To get a true test of your maximum possible speeds, connect your computer directly to your router via an Ethernet cable.
