Speed Tests

Speedtests are important in getting a handle on your Internet speed. These tests can tell you if you are getting what you are paying for from your Internet provider. Not all tests are going to be dead on. Many factors play a part in establishing your speed results which your provider may not have any power over.

  • 1. We recommend unplugging your modem/router power cable and waiting for 10 seconds before plugging the power back in. Once you have done this, please wait from 2 to 5 minutes for your Internet to come back online.
  • 2. We recommend clearing your cache out of your browser. If you are using Google Chrome, click the 3 dots in the upper right of your browser. Click on settings. Scroll to the bottom and then click on Advanced. Scroll down to and click on clear browsing data. Check the appropriate boxes and then click on clear data.
  • 3. If you are using Internet Explorer, click on Tools, Internet Options and then delete.

Other Modem Speed Tests

Download Speed: Download speed denotes how quickly Internet content is transferred to your computer or home network in Mbps.

Upload Speed: Upload speed is naturally the opposite of download speed, describing how quickly you are able to upload content to the Internet. This is important if you use your Internet to regularly share personal videos, music, and images.

Ping (Latency): Ping reflects the amount of latency in a computer network, denoting the amount of time it takes data to travel from one computer to another on the network. It is normally expressed in milliseconds. We try to find the closest test server to your location.
