This speed test tool will help you troubleshoot any internet speed issues. A speed checker provides reading on how fast your computer is downloading and uploading data to the internet.
Be aware that slow downloads / upload speeds indicate your ISP is sub par. Internet speed tests are easy to perform, just run the test using this tool.
Click the blue “Start Speed Test” button, and let the test run. Wait until the test completes, and then you will see three measurements reflected across the top of your screen:
- Ping indicates the delay in the time it takes data to travel to its destination. It is measured in milliseconds, and generally speaking, any latency under 100ms is good.
- Download speed, measured in Mbps, indicates how quickly your device is downloading data from the internet.
- Upload speed, also measured in Mbps, refers to the speed at which your device can upload data to the internet.
In order to get a sense of what your internet speeds actually are, you’ll need to run multiple speed tests at different times of the day.
Unusually slow download or upload speeds can indicate an issue with your internet service provider, your connection, or may simply occur because too many people are using the internet.
