A speed test is an essential procedure for evaluating the speed and quality of your Internet connection. During a speed test, several key parameters are measured.

Download Speed

Download speed measures how fast data is transferred from the Internet to your device. It’s crucial for activities like streaming videos, downloading files, and browsing websites.

Upload Speed

Upload speed indicates how quickly data is sent from your device to the Internet. It’s important for uploading files, video conferencing, and sending emails.


Latency, often referred to as ping, measures the time it takes for a small data packet to travel from your device to a server and back. Low latency is essential for real-time applications such as online gaming and video calls. Here are some benchmarks to evaluate your ping:

  • Below 30 ms: Excellent and optimal connection
  • Below 60 ms: Very good connection
  • 60 to 100 ms: Could be better
  • Above 100 ms: Connection is somewhat weak
Why Is Your Ping High?

High ping can be caused by several factors:

  • Shared Connection: Another user may be consuming bandwidth for streaming or downloads.
  • Non-Optimized Setup: Distance between your device and the router may require a Wi-Fi repeater.
  • Too Many Concurrent Activities: High bandwidth activities should be limited during critical tasks like video calls.
  • Internet Plan Limitations: Your subscription might not support higher quality connections.
Browsing Performance

Browsing performance is essential for evaluating how well your Internet service provider (ISP) connects with services in other countries. Our browsing test measures the user experience when accessing the top five websites in your country. We measure page load times and convert these into a standardized performance index. A performance index of 100% means pages load instantly, while an index of 90% corresponds to a one-second load time. This helps users understand their Internet connection quality for web browsing.

Streaming Quality

Streaming quality is vital for assessing your Internet connection’s ability to deliver video content. We test this by streaming a standard ten-second video at resolutions of 360p, 720p, and 1080p. Key metrics include preloading time (how quickly the video starts) and buffering time (delays due to data loading). These metrics are converted into a performance index, with higher scores indicating a smoother, uninterrupted streaming experience.

By understanding these key parameters—download speed, upload speed, latency, browsing performance, and streaming quality—you can better assess and optimize your Internet connection for all your online activities.
