A speed test is one way to test the speed of your Internet connection. However, there are many factors that can affect the results of a speed test. These factors include but are not limited to:
- the quality and condition of the server at the speed-test location
- the number of people currently testing to the same speed test server as you
- the distance (hops) and quality of each segment from your computer to the speed test server
- the quality and condition of your router, computer’s Ethernet card, or computer’s wireless card
First try going to: http://www.speedtest.net and let the system choose the test server
Note: select a server with high enough capacity to max out your connection.
NOTICE: To get an accurate speed test you should be plugged directly into our receiver or modem using a CAT5/6 Ethernet Cable. Bypass your router and do not speed test using your local WiFi connection to eliminate local network issues. To establish a baseline and be sure something on your network is not causing a problem locally this is the most accurate way to test the speed of your NCW connection.
