How to do a speed test


Running a speed test gives you an idea of the amount of bandwidth available on your internet connection.

Please note that the amounts reflected on your speed test will be the difference between your account and the bandwidth in use.


In order to get an accurate reading, please do the following:

  1. Connect your PC or Laptop directly to your router by using a LAN cable.
  2. Make sure you have no usage at the time of testing.
  3. Disconnect all other devices from your network.
  4. Go to and select speed test and click on "GO".

You will get a reading of both your download and upload speed.

For example, if you have a5/2 package, you should get an accurate reading of up to 5.0Mbps download and 2.0Mbps upload
