Let's test your wifi speed
This test will measure the speed from secured third party test servers to this device. Results can be lower than your plan speeds due to wifi conditions and device specific capabilities. Follow these instructions to test your wifi speed.
1. Use one device. Before you start the test, make sure that any other devices in your home that are connected to the wifi, like an iPad, Xbox, or a Smart TV are turned off. Testing your speed while using other devices simultaneously may impact the accuracy of the results.
2. Be sure to test different locations. For the best test result, make sure you test multiple locations around your home. If you experience issues further from your router, you may need a wifi extender. To test your internet speed, follow these instructions.
3. Stay up-to-date. If you have a computer running an older version of a Windows or Mac operating system, this may impact your test results. You may want to consider updating your device.

Why are wifi speed test results different?
When testing your wifi speed, there are many factors that can impact performance: distance from your router, number of active devices, type of router, and type of device running the test. While running your tests, you should be sure all other devices on your network are off or are using no data. If you want to test your internet speed directly from your ISP, you should plug your computer directly into the modem bypassing the router and wifi. To test your wifi performance, you will want to use a portable device connected to your wifi and test multiple locations around your home.
