Usually, 3 key measures are performed and tested to determine the performance, quality and speed of your internet and broadband connection.
The download speed test calculates how fast data is transmitted from the internet to your computer. The download speed is usually how the broadband providers advertise their broadband packages, so check the results of this test to ensure you’re getting the broadband speeds you are paying for.
The upload speed test calculates how fast data is transmitted from your computer to the internet. This is important when wanting to upload photos and videos to internet sites, such as Facebook and YouTube.
And finally there’s a Ping or Latency test. This calculates how fast, in milliseconds, it takes a small portion of data to be sent from your computer, to the internet and back to your computer. Ping is generally important when playing online games, such as on Xbox Live or the Playstation Network.
