How do I find out my current speed?

Do a speed test! We have one here on our website but this is by no means the only one available, or indeed the best speed checker. There is no such thing as the ‘best’ speed checker and it is wise to take the average result from multiple speed checkers at various times of the day. Do a search for broadband speed check and you will find many to choose from.

It is also wise (if possible) to carry out the tests on a wired, rather than wireless connected computer and to ensure that you are the only user accessing the internet on your premises when conducting the test. This is because the number of users on a network, as well as the use of wireless networks can cause large variations in the results which may not reflect your true internet speed.
