Testing Your Internet Speed

Wondering how fast your Astound interernet connection really is? You can test it here, free of bias.

 

It's important to note that speeds vary when browsing webpages, based on the amount of data needed to load for that page to function. When you request information from a website, that information can only travel as fast as the slowest connection along the way.

 

Astound wants you to get the best internet connection possible, which is why we use fiber-optic technology instead of outdated DSL. We are constantly working to improve our network. Since many factors can affect your access to individual websites, we cannot guarantee the same connection speed in every online interaction. However, we provide steps below to maximize your internet connection.

 

Most performance issues can be addressed simply by shutting down background internet programs and bypassing additional network equipment.

Since many factors can affect your access to individual websites, we cannot guarantee the same connection speed in every online interaction. Speed variations are due to a variety of factors, including network traffic, the number of people conducting the test simultaneously, or any number of hardware and/or software capabilities or limitations of the computer, modem, or router. However, if you consistently receive poor performance, we can have a technician examine the connection in your home.
