How fast is your high-speed internet? You can find out with a speed test. So, how does it work? First, the speed test finds the closest Iowa server. Then, it opens multiple connections and tries to download a predetermined amount of data. When the test is done, it can tell you how much of the network was needed to complete the download and how much time was required.
How Do Devices Affect Internet Speed?
The more devices connected to a single modem, the slower your internet speed. Why does this happen? There's a limited amount of bandwidth that gets split among the connected devices. The more devices, the smaller the portion each gets.
What Are Upload and Download Speeds?
Speed tests measure both upload and download speeds. Uploading is when you transfer data from your device to the internet. Downloading is when you transfer data from the internet to your device. Uploading is always slower than downloading.
What Are Gateway Tests?
Your "gateway" is the hardware that provides you with high-speed internet. When you connect a computer or other device to it, a gateway or ping test is performed to gauge the quality of the connection.
How Does Coverage Work?
Your modem provides internet within a certain radius, which is why you can't connect when you get too far away. This area is called coverage. Certain materials can interfere with coverage, creating weak or dead spots where your speeds are affected.
