How to Create an Accurate Internet Speed Test

  1. If possible, test your speed on an Ethernet-wired device such as a desktop or laptop computer. Remember: WiFi speeds vary and are easily affected by many factors.
  2. Connect only the device you’re testing. Your speed reading will be lower with multiple connected devices running at once, because all those devices are competing for available bandwidth, and thus, internet speed.
  3. On the device you are testing, close all unnecessary applications and other browser windows.
  4. Restart your device and clear browser cache.
  5. Run multiple tests at different times of day and average the results.
