 How to verify your internet speed

Message 1 of 1

Are you getting upload speeds as fast as your download speeds? Find out your current upload and download speeds.


Please test your speeds using the Speed Test on the right side panel or the Official Speed Test by Verizon:


This site is simple, accurate and convenient and the test will check the connection speed of your device to the internet. While on the site, you may click on the icons on the upper right side of the page for important information like the Verizon Quick Guides, the Fios Optimizer Tool which sets the configuration of your PC for fast Internet speeds, and the Network Diagnostic Tool which performs a test that checks your settings to see if you need to run the optimizer.


Please remember that all Fios speeds are best achieved while using a wired connection.  Speeds will vary if you’re using a Wi-Fi connection and will not give you an accurate reading.


Here are a few pro tips to make sure you get the best results during your test:


  • Connect your computer directly to your router using an Ethernet cable
  • Disconnect from any VPNs
  • Avoid using video or music streaming apps


And here’s some other things that could affect your test results:


  • Multiple devices on your home network during testing
  • The processor speed of the device you’re using
  • This test is intended to measure your results on your home network, and should not be used on public Wi-Fi or cellular networks
