One of the most important features of any broadband plan is the speed of the Internet connection and the time taken for uploads and downloads.
There are many factors that can impact your broadband speed (especially with ADSL and your distance from the exchange). To see how your connection is performing simply run a speed test to get a reading on your connection's capabilities.
Our broadband speed test works by measuring the time it takes to download and upload a fixed amount of data from the web to your computer. It also tests latency which represents the response time for a signal to be received from the web server. Latency is also called 'ping' and is measured in milliseconds. Hit the 'See detailed report' button at the end of the test to see this.
