How Does Our Internet Speed Test Work?
A bandwidth speed test is an effective way for individuals and businesses to measure their connection. Broadband providers sell tiered packages based on speed, so it’s important to test regularly to make sure you are getting the appropriate return on investment. For organizations that use VoIP services, reliable broadband speed is a core necessity for the daily work of every employee. From conference calls to exporting large amounts of data, the speed of your broadband connection has a huge impact on your bottom line.
Why Should I Test My Internet Speed?
Internet speed is only part of the story. While conventional speed tests measure throughput, you should also test the Internet quality of your connection. Some providers may use old copper connections while others deliver your service using state-of-the-art fiber connectivity. These, along with other factors, could impact latency, jitter and packet loss. And, these affect your bandwidth quality. Depending on whether you are using your connection for VoIP, video conferencing or mission-critical applications, you may need a higher quality service. Our Internet quality test does this for you and helps highlight potential risks to your business.
