There are several sites for testing Connection speeds, here are some of the best.


Broadband speed is measured in kilobits per second (Kbps) and megabits per second (Mbps).

In May 2019, Ofcom reported that 'the average actual home broadband download speed in 2018 was 50Mbit/s for the first time', which is an increase of 18% from previous years. Users want faster speeds, and availability is now better than ever.

How does the internet speed test work?

When you start the speed test, our StreetStats tool checks your broadband speed by downloading and uploading dummy "packets" of data sent to our UK servers via "pings".


Factors that may affect the accuracy of your broadband speed measurement include:

  • Shut down any software that uses the internet
  • Make sure there are no large objects between your computer and wireless router.
  • Many broadband providers suffer from traffic congestion at the busiest times of day
