How to check the speed of your Internet Connection

Sometimes, you may want to check the speed of your Internet connection.

Here is a list of the websites that you can use to check the speed of your internet connection :

Speed Test
Bandwidth Place
Kify
My Speed
Test my Speed

After the test finishes, you will be given your Internet speed in kilobits (Kb). You will have to convert it into kilobytes (KB) to know the actual speed. You can check this article for the difference between kilobits & kilobytes.

Note :

While running the speed test, do not use the Internet for any other purpose. This is because the websites generally check your Internet speed by simply downloading & uploading a file. The speed of this download/upload is considered as the speed of the Internet connection. As such, if you use the Internet for other purposes like downloading, surfing, etc. while testing the Internet connection, the speed test will get a lower share of your Internet connection, thereby affecting the results of the Internet speed check giving inaccurate results.
