Test Your Broadband Speed
Run the test to measure the actual speed of your Internet connection. This platform is run by the scientific community. We make all test results publicly available via the MeasurementLab.net website to help promote Internet research. M-Lab’s Network Diagnostic Tool collects a number of measures of different facets of your Internet connection. The information published includes each device’s IP address, but does not include personal identifying information about you as an Internet user.
The Internet is a critical infrastructure in a 21st century society. A growing consensus holds that access to communications is a core human right, and that the Internet is essential to building a thriving economy.
Why Test Your Speed
Broadband connectivity is crucial for access to the modern economy, as well as engagement in contemporary civic and political life. Without adequate study of the availability of broadband connectivity, policymakers are left in the dark as they design programs to modernize communications infrastructure and ensure that telecommunications companies provide broadband/Internet service at the minimum speeds required to take full advantage of online resource.
