Important things to know

For the most reliable test result, we recommend you use the Speedtest app and an Ethernet cable to connect directly to your router. This means that your result shows your connection speed, and is better than testing your Wi-Fi performance or Mesh system.

Remember, your Wi-Fi speed varies, depending on the distance between you and your router. Your broadband speed will also vary, based on the number of devices connected to your network. The speed of any broadband type is a theoretical maximum speed, and not a guaranteed speed.

Definitions

The data transfer rate used in speed tests is normally megabits per second. Megabits are typically represented as Mbit/s or Mbps. You want to be as close to the theoretical maximum that you can achieve for your connection type.

Download

The maximum speed (measured in megabits per second) data can be sent to your computer.

Upload

The maximum speed (measured in megabits per second) data from your computer can be sent to the network.

Your I.P

The address used to send data between your computer and the network. I.P. stands for Internet Protocol.

ADSL

Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Line, which has a theoretical maximum speed of up to 24Mbps.

FTTH

FTTH stands for Fibre To The Home. This means that the Fibre network reaches your property.

Fibre

Fibre broadband uses fibre optic technology to deliver your data much faster than standard copper lines. Fibre has a theoretical maximum speed of 1Gbps. Real world speeds are likely to measure over 900Mbps

Packet Loss

The percentage of units of data that are lost whilst travelling from source to destination.

ISP

ISP is an acronym that stands for Internet Service Provider. ISP is commonly used to describe a business that provides internet access, whether that is to households or other businesses.

Latency

The amount of time (milliseconds) it takes a unit of data to travel from source to destination.

VDSL

Very high speed Digital Subscriber Line, which has a theoretical maximum speed of up to 100Mbps.

FTTN

FTTN stands for Fibre To The Node. This means that the Fibre network reaches a street cabinet.
