Learn more about your internet speed result
Internet speed refers to how quickly information can be transmitted back and forth from the Internet to your computer. Internet speeds are measured in Mbps (Megabits per second).
- Download speed is how quickly information is transmitted from the Internet to your computer. When it comes to downloading or patching video games, watching videos, and streaming music on the web, this is the key number to watch for
- Upload speed is how quickly you can send information from your computer to the Internet. This includes file sharing, syncing photos, cloud back ups and more
- Ping is the reaction time of your connection. A lower ping means a more responsive connection, which is ideal for online gaming. However, depending on the physical location or configuration of the server (where websites and games are hosted on), this number may vary
