Run a broadband speed test

No ratings

Your broadband speed is how fast data is sent (uploaded) and received (downloaded) over your Internet connection. Our broadband speed test measures your throughput speed and your results will be displayed in Megabits per second (Mbps). The more Megabits your broadband can transfer per second, the faster your connection is and the more you can do online.

For the most accurate results, take a look at our tips before you start:

  • Test with a wired connection for a more accurate reading.
  • Stay within 3 meters of your router if you're running the test over Wi-Fi.
  • Make sure there are no obstacles between your router and the device you're running the test on.
  • Find your average speed by running 3 tests on different days at different times. This will give you a much clearer picture of your actual broadband speed.


Is your broadband running slower than it should be? why not run a health check on your line to see if there's a problem with your broadband connection. If everything's fine, our tips for fixing slow speeds can help solve any speed issues.
