What is Internet Speed Testing?

Internet speed testing performs three key measurements used to determine the overall quality and performance of your internet connection.
Download Speed
The speed at which data is sent from the Internet to your computer.
Upload Speed
The speed at which data is sent from your computer to the Internet.
Ping (Latency)
The time it takes in milliseconds for a small piece of data to be sent from your computer to the Internet and back.

Speedtest by Ookla is a well-known speed test that’s frequently used to perform market analysis of Internet speeds in Australia and many other countries around the world.

Theoretical Maximum Speeds

Australian Internet plans typically advertise these as part of their plan descriptions, however these speeds can vary depending on factors such as:
  • Quality of the wiring
  • The kind of modem you’re using and its settings
  • Network congestion (For example, if you are testing at peak hour between 6-11pm)
  • Distance from the exchange (ADSL/ADSL2+)
  • Line quality
