About this task

To evaluate your Internet connection, complete the following steps:


  1. Enter the URL for a secure website to test your Internet speed. Most Internet providers offer a speed test.
  2. Run the Internet speed test. The speed test reports an upload and a download result.
    Note: This test reports an average speed. It may fluctuate up and down until complete.
  3. Try a large file download. Download the Very Large File (1GB) if offered by the speed test.
    Figure 1. Large file download and estimated download time at different speeds
  4. Time the test to see how long a 1 GB file takes to download and you can use this as an indicator for how long larger files may take. Press Ctrl+J on your keyboard to see your download progress and note the time it starts and finishes.
