Speedtest
Fast.com

We recommend the Primo Wireless server for best performance metrics. Please use an Ethernet connected device for your test, also make sure no devices are using your connection at the time of the test as this can alter the results.

All broadband connections are based on line speed only, i.e. connection to the router, radio etc. not to your device or WiFi. WiFi tests are often subject to interference therefore Ethernet is the only true reflection of line speed (with no local traffic in use)
