Internet Speed Test - Check your Internet connection speed

Test your maximum/minimum and average internet download/upload speeds. The test server will be chosen automatically, usually the closest to your location.

For best results, before starting the test close all your running programs and browser tabs, especially those using Internet traffic (BitTorrent, email clients, youtube, etc). Run the test while using a wired connection ( LAN cable ), not Wi-Fi. Speeds through Wi-Fi can be up to 10x times slower than cable. Do not switch to another tab until the test finishes, otherwise, you will get an error.

Why is my download speed slower than the one advertised by the ISP?

Usually, the speed advertised by ISPs represents the maximum speed you can achieve in ideal conditions. Besides the bandwidth provided by the ISP, you should be aware that internet speed is greatly affected by your hardware capabilities (PC, router), test server capabilities and distance between your device and the test server. You’ll obtain the highest speed when connected directly through the LAN cable. Speeds through Wi-Fi can be up to 10 times slower and depends a lot on the distance & obstacles between your router and device. For example, on a 1000 Mbps subscription, I was able to get almost 900 Mbps when connected directly to LAN and only 300 Mbps through Wi-Fi (3m distance and no walls).

What is Download speed?

The download speed is how fast you can pull data from a server to you. Most connections are designed to download much faster than they upload, since the majority of online activity like loading web pages, viewing online videos, listen to music or radio consists of downloads. Download speed in this test is measured in megabits per second (Mbps). 1 MB/s = 8 Mbps

What is Upload speed?

The upload speed is how fast you can send data from your device to a server. Uploading is necessary whenever you want to send a file, or using video-chat applications to talk to someone else online. Upload speed in this test is measured in megabits per second (Mbps).

What is Latency?

Network latency describes a delay that takes place during communication between point A and point B. Latency is normally measured as Round Trip Time (RTT) in milliseconds ( ms ). It’s basically the amount of time between requesting data and receiving back data. Latency refers to the delay before the data transfer starts, not the speed of the transfer itself. A high latency can be caused by a wide variety of reasons, like the capabilities of the hardware equipment involved, but VERY much depends on where point A and point B are. The longer the distance, the higher the latency. During speed tests, it’s also referred as a ping rate.
What is a Good Latency?
A value under 100ms is reasonable in most cases. For online games, especially shooters or driving games ( usually games that need a fast reaction time ), a latency under 30ms is ideal. Less than 50ms is still good.

What is Jitter?

Jitter is simply the difference in packet delay. This time difference between when a data packet actually arrives and the expected arrival time is defined as jitter or time distortion. It usually does not cause any communication problems but when we speak about Voice traffic and VoIP network environment this can be an issue.
