To find the speed of your DSL connection, try a speed test website and and click on Start and wait for the test to complete in a few minutes. Ideal test conditions:

  1. A proper test of your connection should use an Ethernet wired connection.
  2. With only one device on your network using the internet connection.
  3. With background internet applications and processes like cloud services (like iCloud, Google Drive or torrents) ended.
  4. With only the tab for the speed test open in the browsers.

It is normal for the download speed to be much faster than the upload speed. This is intentional, so that you are able to download big files quickly. Normal, good results for 6 Mbps service would be something like 5.2 Mbps download, and about 600 Kbps upload.

If your results are not as good as you would expect, try Troubleshooting for ideas on what to check to improve your DSL performance.

Speed tests:

Note: Because different test servers are located in different geographical places their results will not be comparable to each other and testing the same DSL connection on different speed tests will give different results. If you use a speed test to monitor your connection over time, then always use the same test.
