|Welcome to the Bandwidth Meter DSL Speed Test|
Bandwidth Meter DSL will check the bandwidth of your Internet connection and compare it against DSL, cable modem, and other broadband connections. It's easy as 1-2-3...
PS: When you like to see real Bandwidth test results, then please repeat test at least twice and close all programs what are using internet results!
What the Bandwidth Meter does?
When you click the 'Go' button, then our server sends you a file of a certain size. Download times are then used to calculate the bandwidth speed from our Internet site to your computer. Your bandwidth speed may be affected by many factors (see details below).
Why do I want to use the Bandwidth Meter speed test?
Often, users perform this test simply out of curiosity, to see what the actual throughput is from their computer to our Internet site. However, in some cases, users have been able to troubleshoot their connections to the Internet by performing tests on the Bandwidth Meter DSL speed test.
What can affect the Bandwidth Meter results:
Being outside of the our server country or far away from the location of our servers.
Performing other downloads at the same time that this test is executed.
Executing programs that use your bandwidth while this test is being run.
Broadband users: The quality of your connection is paramount. In many cases, users will find they have 'line noise'. This is primarily caused by stray electromagnetic energy creeping into their wiring, which degrades the quality of signals in hard-wired circuits, e.g. telephone lines, cable systems, LAN connections. This causes data error correction to take place, thereby limiting the throughput to your computer.
Dial-up users: Please note, 56K modems are limited by FCC regulations to 53K.
