How to Check Your Internet Speed?
Do you think you’re not getting the speed that you have been promised by your ISP? Well, if yes, you’re not alone.
If you’re struggling with a slow internet connection and think your ISP not offering the speed that you have paid for, we advise you to take an internet speed test.
In fact, you should never trust your ISP’s words until you test the speed yourself.
The easiest way to check your internet speed is to use the website speedcheck.org
In this article, we will tell you how you can use the website to measure your upload speed, download speed, and latency.
Before we start, make sure no upload or download is running on your PC/Laptop. You should also turn off your VPN software for the duration of the test.
How does it work?
SpeedCheck.org connects you to a server where the upload and download process happens. It measures the results in real-time and shows you the results once the process is complete.
How to use it?
Using the website speedcheck.org to check your internet speed is pretty simple and straightforward.
Just visit the SpeedCheck.org website and click on the start test button.
As soon you click the start test button the upload and download process starts (as seen in the images below).
The process takes less than a minute to complete and shows you results (see the sample below).
In the test results, it gives you information i.e latency, download speed, upload speed, IP Address, service provider, and security information.
If you want to double-check if the results are correct, you can run a retest.
To run a retest, a button is available below the results. Click on the “test again” button to rerun the test.
Checking Previous Test Results
If you wish to check your previous test results, you can do this by visiting the history section of the website speedcheck.org.
You can create an account with speedcheck.org and all of your previous test results will be available under the history tab.
If you don’t want to register, don’t worry, your test results will still be available under the history tab until you use the same browser to test your connection speed and don’t clear your browser catch history.
Is your internet speed good enough?
If you wonder if the internet speed you are getting is good enough then the data available on Wikipedia can help you.
On Wikipedia, you may check the average internet speed in different countries. If your internet speed is better than the average speed in your county, that means you’re getting a good internet speed.
Checking your internet speed periodically is indeed a good thing. It tells you if you’re getting the speed that you have paid for.
Keeping an eye on your historical internet speed tells you if your service provider has improved their services over time or their quality of service has taken a dip.
