Checking Your Connection Speed Using Speedtest

Have you ever wondered if your ISP is giving you the same bandwidth speed that you are paying for? There are many ways to check this but one of my favorites is www.speedtest.net. There are many other sites that can check this too but I seem to like Speedtest the most.

First you will need to navigate your browser to www.speedtest.net you will then want to choose a server that is the closest to where you are (usually the recommended one in yellow).

Once the scan is over you will get the results of your connection including upload and download speeds.

Now you can see how fast you connection is and also see if you are getting what you are paying for. Also as a note you will get better results if your connection is idle before you use Speedtest.
