Internet Speed Test
Before perform internet speed test
Make sure only one device that is used for the speed test is connected. If possible disconnect all other devices. Else, the results may not be inaccurate as the other devices also consume the bandwidth.
If your internet speed is above 50Mbps, use a mobile device that can support 5G. For PC connect with Gigabit network cable and not normal network cable can only support up to 100Mbps.
For example, if you have 500Mbps Time Fibre installed and you modem supports 5G and your mobile does not, then your mobile will not measure speed above 450Mbps.
MOST IMPORTANT: If you are using prepaid internet with limited internet mobile data, every time you perform the internet speed test, it will deduct from your data balance. Please consider carefully before performing a speed test. If your data plan is unlimited, nothing to worry just proceed to speed test.
