Before we begin, note what you are actually paying for and who your Service Provider is.
For a comparison point, the first piece of information we need to know is the connection speed that you are paying for with your service provider. This should be listed on your bills, the wording might be slightly different and may only mention the download speed, but it should read something like one of these:
- 12Mbps Download, 1Mbps Upload
- 25Mbps Download, 5Mbps Upload
- 50Mbps Download, 20Mbps Upload
- 100Mbps Download, 40Mbps Upload
Now that you know what connection speed that you are paying for, you can commence Step 2: Conduct the Speed Tests.
