Every now and then speeds vary on the internet. You might need to make sure that your speed is constant. Maybe it’s an on-going problem that you want to sort out, but before complaining to your service provider you need to ensure it is, in fact, the connection speed that is off and not something entirely different.

That’s why we provide this service. Our speed test is extremely easy to use and can save you a lot of frustration down the line. Simply head over to the Speed Master and click start test. It will run automatically and all you have to do is to wait patiently. We advise that you close any open browser tabs or windows other than the one you are running the speed test on.

Understanding internet speed
The speed at which your internet connection works is dependent on a number of factors. Head over to our article, Checking the Connection, to read more about these variables.

When purchasing an internet package, do some research. Don’t just go with the first internet provider that shows up in your Google search. Not only should you research the company, but take a look at the packages that they offer. Each one has unique fee structure as well as different speeds. Contact the company and ask them what would be the best connection for your area. For instance, if you are considering a DSL line, then the further you are from the internet provider’s office, the slower your connection will be.
