The Broadband Program Office has provided users the opportunity to test their Internet connection bandwidth using a speed test. The speed test will measure a few data points.
Download Speed: How quickly Internet content is transferred to your computer or network in Mbps (megabits per second). This is important if you often use the Internet to stream video or other media content.
Upload Speed: How quickly you are able to upload content to the Internet in Mbps. This is important if you often use the Internet to share videos, music and images.
Ping/Jitter: This refers to the amount of latency in a network, or the amount of time it takes data to travel from one computer to another on a network.
