Test the speed of your Internet connection by using the Seattle Broadband Speed Test, developed in partnership with New America's Open Technology Institute and Open Seattle. This test will measure the Internet speed you are experiencing. The speed you experience depends on a number of factors, including your Internet connection, wireless signal (if applicable), and number of users sharing your network.
For the most accurate test results:
- If possible, connect to the Internet directly via a cable, DSL, or fiber modem
- Make sure you are not downloading or uploading anything
- Close any other programs that are using the Internet
- Turn off any other computers, tablets, or devices that share your home network
