Test History Log, and many other features are available for registered users.
Step 1These tests require JAVA plug-in and JAVASCRIPT enabled. Disable Norton Internet Security, and Zone Alarm PRO if the test hangs at the end [more info]. These speed test applets work using the official plugin! Use a simple applet to verify your Java version. If you have not already done so, we recommend you install the plugin (visit, and click 'Download'). The ancient Microsoft JVM bundled with Explorer, is NOT supported.

Step 2Decide which server to use. A server located geographically close to you will generally reveal your maximum speed (for more on this, read below). Click that link. The new page should load a SPEED TEST APPLET.

Step 3The test may take up to 30 seconds.. after it is complete, the page will change to show the results. IF YOU HAVE A PROBLEM GETTING A RESULT then please look at this FAQ page - Speed Test Problems?.

Step 4Please be sure to read further information below.

Further information

The single transfer speed-test probes for your maximum line speed, both upload and download. The test servers are located in quality data centers for maximum accuracy.
Please visit the Speed test result archive, to compare the results others are getting, in your area, or in your DNS domain (ISP).

What is the difference between DISTANT and NEAR speed-test servers?
A default copy of Windows will probably not achieve your purchased speed with a distant speed test server, especially if you have a fast connection! An installation of Windows with a tuned (tweaked) tcp/ip stack (normally this means a larger TCP Receive Window) should be able to maximise your download speed even when testing to distant servers. For more information on this subject, see our Tweak Test page.

Technical Information
This test is a transfer of random binary data in both directions. The test stages, it starts with small transfers and moves to larger ones until a minimum amount of time has passed during the transfer to provide a good measure. Unlike FLASH based speed-tests, our upload payload cannot be compressed, so it gives the correct result even on satellite or wireless connections.
Read our pontificating on Speed, Latency and the Internet.
