What does the speedtest reveal?

The speed measurement data indicates the speed from your device to the server you selected. First, the download-speed is metered then the upload-speed.

The results are shown in Mb/s, the same measurement many broadband-offers are promoted with.

I don’t achieve the speed promised by my provider

Although the telcoinsider speed test is quite reliable, some factors may falsify the results:

  • Other data connections during the check (eg. parallel downloads, email software downloading, VoIP or IPTV connections).
  • Other users using the same broadband connection (eg. multiple devices are connected to a router).
  • Weak WLAN signal (the speed check shows better results if your device is connected with a wire to the modem/router).
  • Old Hardware (eg. 10 Mbit/s network adapter and a faster internet connection).
  • Overload at the speed test server (in this case, please check another server).
  • Overload at your provider’s infrastructure (most providers do not guarantee the speed they offer or they only guarantee it within their infrastructure).

All sources of disturbance have been removed but I still don’t reach the speed

Although we cannot be held responsible for the accuracy of the results, you should contact your internet provider. They probably can provide a speed tester tool within their own infrastructure. Speeds may also vary depending on the test server you are connected to.
