Internet Speed Test

Internet Speeds Explained 

  • Download Speed: This is the speed that the internet connection receives the data from the internet source - how many Mega bits of data per second received from the server.

  • Upload Speed: As a rule of thumb, upload speed is 1/10 of whatever download speed is listed. Another important idea to keep handy is that an upload takes more time than a download BUT uses less bandwidth (or highway space). 

  • Live Streaming: Streaming can be downloading or uploading - watching videos or listening to music is downloading. Live Streaming such as Zoom / Facetime is uploading.
