While your Internet service provider may promise you a certain connection speed, the best way to determine what your actual Internet connection speed is to check the connection speed using a Web-based speed test. These tests are designed to test the speed at which your computer is able to upload and download files while connected to the Internet.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Visit a website that features a Web speed test (see Resources).

  2. 2

    Click "Start," "Begin Test" or whichever button is included on the speed test page that will begin the speed test.

  3. 3

    Wait a few moments as the speed test runs.

  4. 4

    Locate the numbers that appear next to "Download Speed" and "Upload Speed" to check your Internet speed connection.
