With more and more people either moving onto the NBN or thinking of moving onto the NBN, one of the questions I often get asked is “how do I test the speed of my current internet connection?”.
Well the easiest way is to go to one (or both) of these popular speed testing websites:
SpeedTest by Oookla –
Fast by Netflix – www.fast.com
A few things though before you perform the tests are:
Reboot both your router and computer.
To get the best results plug you device straight into your router via cable. You can test via wireless but your wireless connection may be slower than your Internet connection.
Perform the test multiple times over a few days and at different times of the day.
Make sure that no one else is using the Internet at the same time as you are doing the test.
Hope these tips help you out and if your tests don’t match the speed you are expecting contact your ISP.
