What is Upload Speed?

The speed at which data travels from your device to the internet is referred to as upload speeds. Uploading files or images to social media or other websites can take less time if you have a faster upload speed.

What is Ping?

Ping, also known as latency, is a particular metric that has an effect on online gaming and a few other activities. The time it takes for your network to transfer data from your computer to a remote server and back is known as ping.

What is jitter?

Jitter occurs when data packets are sent over your network connection with a time delay. Congestion on the network, as well as path improvements, are common causes.

Frequently asked questions

Is upload supposed to be faster than download?

The download speed should nearly always be faster than your upload speed as the band for upload is much smaller than the band for download. If your download speed is slower than your upload speed, you should try to replace your router and call your ISP to run some line tests to detect the cause of the slow speeds.

How does the speed test work?

The client first decides your location and the nearest test server to you—this is a crucial step. The Speed Test sends a basic signal (a ping) to the test server after it has been set up, and the server reacts. The roundtrip time is estimated in milliseconds in this test.
The download speed test starts after the ping is completed. The client connects to the server several times and tries to retrieve a tiny amount of data. Two factors are calculated at this point: how long it took to grab the data fragment and how much of your network resources it used.

What is a good download and upload speed?

For households with many internet accounts or for regular video viewing, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) suggests internet speeds of 12-25 Mbps.

How can I get a higher download speed? (Tips)

1. Restart your computer. Before you dive into other methods, try a good old restart.
2. Test your internet speed.
3. Upgrade internet speed.
4. Disable other devices connected to your router.
5. Disable apps that aren’t being used.
6. Download one file at a time.
7. Test or replace your modem or router.
8. Change the location of your router.
