How to check Internet Speed?
You can quickly check your internet speed by clicking the “Start Internet Speed Test” button after we have finished loading a list of available servers. Choosing a server closest to your location will give you the most accurate and reliable results. You can test your mobile, wifi or wired connection.
We try to guess the closest server to your location. However, sometimes we might get it wrong. If you think we got it wrong and there’s a closer server available to you, you can choose another server from the list.
Explanation of Internet Speed Test Results:
- Download Speed – the speed at which your computer (or the network as a whole) can receive data from the internet. Download speed impacts your web browsing and file downloading speed the most. Higher download speed equals faster downloads. Download speed is expressed in Mbps (Megabits per second), while web browsers and other software usually show the speed of downloading a file in Mb/sec (Megabytes per second). You can convert Mbps to MBps by dividing the download speed of the test by 8. Example: 100Mbps equals 12.5 MBps.
- Upload Speed – the speed at which your computer can send data to other machines on the internet. Higher upload speed equals faster file uploading – for example, adding attachments to emails, uploading a YouTube video, or sharing a file in general.
- Ping – indicates the time it takes for data to reach the destination and then return to your computer (round-trip). Ping is expressed in milliseconds (ms), and lower ping is better. However, ping only matters when doing a task, where the response speed is critical – such as computer games. Playing a competitive computer game, having a low ping is a must to ensure that your actions get received as soon as possible.
- Jitter – shows the stability of your connection and measures the changes in ping. Having a low jitter means that your ping doesn’t change and is stable – meaning you have a stable connection. Jitter is expressed in milliseconds, and lower jitter is better than higher jitter.
Frequently Asked Questions
Here are the answers to questions that we frequently get about internet/wifi speed.
What is my internet speed?
Your internet speed is usually defined by two metrics – download and upload speed. You can find out your download and upload speed by performing the test above. In addition to those common metrics, we also provide you with ping and jitter statistics. You can start the test by clicking the “Start Internet Speed Test” button.
What is a good internet speed?
Good internet speed depends on your requirements. While anything above 1Mbps is good enough for regular web browsing – such as checking social media and newspapers, you need at least 20Mbps to watch high-quality videos on YouTube and Netflix. If you love playing high-quality video games or watching movies in 4K, having internet faster than 100Mbps will make your life easier.
How to increase internet speed?
There aren’t any ways to increase your internet speed. You can try disconnecting other machines from the network (such as your TV or tablet) and closing any applications on your computer that you aren’t using at the moment. However, besides that, you need to contact your Internet Service Provider (ISP) to increase your internet speed.
What is a good internet speed for gaming?
Internet speed doesn’t matter much for gaming. What matters for gaming is Ping and Jitter. You want to have as low Ping and Jitter as possible and play on servers close to your location, preferably your own country or neighbors.
