Check your sync speed

No ratings

Your sync speed, also known as your line speed, is the maximum speed at which your router can connect to the internet. It's determined by how far away you are from the local telephone exchange and can change each time you reboot your router.

Your sync speed will always be higher than your actual (throughput) broadband speed. If you want to check your throughput speed, head over to our speed checker.
