How fast is your internet speed

For the past couple of weeks I have been having really bad internet connection and I was wondering if it was the CT101 site or my own internet. I spoke to Professor Smith and he told me to run a speed test to see which one it is. So I did just that and found some interesting results.

I ran two tests, one of them was in the afternoon when no one was home and another was when all my family members was home and on the internet whether it was on the computer, phone, tablet, etc.

The speed test that was in the afternoon showed the following results:

The next speed test was done during the night and the results included:

However, this analysis is very helpful and now I know that to never takes tests during the night especially if they have a time limit.

  1. Hey bravo for following through with your test and reporting it out! And definitely sucks that the download speeds in the evening are basically less than half of what they are during the day. But 20 Mbps is still pretty darn good. I bet the night of your test that it seemed ok?

    If you want to get really nerdy, you should try to do tests as consistently as you can across a whole week. Say one daytime and one evening, same time everyday. You could even involve family members to help if you can’t do it on particular days.
