During testing, our test will check the download and upload speeds that your broadband or mobile connection can handle and report the findings to you on the screen.
Depending on your ISP (Internet Service Provider) and the time of day when your run the bandwidth speed test online, you can receive different results based on how much network traffic is currently being experienced between testing locations and your computer. We encourage you to come back several times a day if you are having problems and test your Internet speed in intervals.
Sometimes it is good to compare multiple speed tests to get a better picture of how your connection really performs. Different tests run from different servers and latency is dependent on where those servers are located in the world and how many people are accessing them at the same time you are. A wired connection will typically give you the most accurate results, as results on wireless networks may not be as what you expect.
