Are you getting the speed you’re paying for? Whether you are troubleshooting or just doing some due diligence, speed test websites are free to use and will measure your current internet connection speed. To check your speed, visit one of these sites:

Speedtest by Ookla by Netflix

Speakeasy Speed Test


Xfinity Speed Test

Verizon Internet Speed Test

Speed Test by Cloudflare

Bandwidth Place

It can be useful to test your speed on a variety of sites, as some ISPs respect the results from certain sites more than others. If you can tell tech support, “I got the same speed test result on 3 different sites,” then they may take your situation more seriously.

For best results, run one speed test at a time, when no one else in your household is actively using bandwidth. And consider connecting your test computer to your modem or router with an ethernet cable. You might notice different speed test results over Wi-Fi and cabled connections.
