Support Speed Test
Welcome to our speedtest. This test will measure your connection speed to and
from our server by downloading some data from our server, and then uploading it
back to the server. The test should take approximately 60 seconds to complete.
Testing the speed of your DSL connection by visiting one of the popular web site
bandwidth meters is not a truly accurate representation of your Internet's bandwidth.
There are far too many uncontrollable variables between your computer and the web
server that hosts the bandwidth meter, such as the backbone of the Internet. To
accurately test the speed of your DSL Internet, you'll need to do a little work.
Disconnect any additional computers from your local network. Connect one single
computer directly to your DSL Modem or network router (bypass any firewall or
proxy server). Since this server is on our network, you are truly testing only
the speed of your DSL Internet between your computer and our network.
When determining if your speed is within acceptable limits, keep the following in mind:
it is normal to see about a 15% loss in bandwidth due to overhead traffic from
your computer, and most download speeds are reported in kilobytes per second while
Internet connection speeds are reported in kilobits per second (eight bits equals one byte).
This is not an accurate test, rather it will give you an estimate of your connection speed
to determine if you are having any trouble.
