Internet Connexion Speed Test
What Does a Speed Test Measure?
An internet speed test measures the maximum speed at which data transfers between your computer and the internet.
Most internet service providers (ISPs) advertise a maximum download speed, which is the speed at which data is transferred from the Internet to your computer, but most speed tests will let you know how your download speed and your upload speed are performing. Upload speed is the rate at which data transfers from your computer to the internet.
Your actual download speed may be lower than the maximum speed due to a variety of factors, such as your computer’s configuration, the quality of the connection between your computer and the ISP server, and network congestion.
What is Considered a Good Internet Speed?
Any internet connection above 25 Mbps is a good internet speed.
The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) currently defines a “broadband” internet connection as one that provides at least 25 Mbps for download speed and 3 Mbps for upload.
