Right speed for the bandwidth

The right speed for the bandwidth you need

Many households have more than 10 internet connected devices running at one time. As a result, each device must share the available bandwidth, which could impact your speed. Luckily, with a gig speed fiber connection, you get the same fast speed up as you do down. Access as much as 20x more data than some traditional 50 Mbps cable connections, so everyone can work, learn, stream and play online without skipping a beat.

Check your network speed

Speed tests are a great way to ensure you’re getting the gig speed you expect. With gig speed, you should see about 940 Mbps upload and download from a wired connection as your router will use some bandwidth. Wired speeds and measured speeds will vary.

For the most accurate results, we recommend you check for the following:

  • Make sure you’re using the most current browser.
  • Connect your computer directly to the router using an ethernet cable.
  • Disconnect from any Virtual Private Networks (VPNs).
  • Make sure no other device is connected to your internet during the test.
  • Shut down video or music streaming apps during the test.

Download the free Speedtest® desktop app for the best way to check your network speed.
