How do my internet speed test results compare?

In general, your speed test results when using an Ethernet cord should be within 80% of the advertised speeds you’re paying for, according to data from the Federal Communications Commission. This means if you’re paying for 50 Mbps, your speed test results should be at least 40 Mbps or greater.

According to Speedtest.net, the average fixed broadband speed in the United States as of March 2023 is 197 Mbps download and 23 Mbps upload. This is a significant download speed increase from a year ago when the average internet speed was 120 Mbps download.

If you are not getting the speeds you want or need, consider comparing internet providers available at your address.

Fixes for slow-speed test results

Didn’t get the results you want or expect when you tested your internet connection? Before you shop for internet providers in your area, there are a few quick and easy things you can do to improve your internet connection.

  • Turn off your modem and router – Sometimes, your equipment needs a reboot. Your internet service provider will often suggest you reset your internet modem and wireless router as a first step. Unplug both for at least 10-20 seconds.
  • Try running multiple tests at different times – Depending on when you run your test, you may see slower or faster internet speeds. It’s not uncommon to experience slower internet during peak hours. And, if you have a cable internet connection, you may be sharing bandwidth with your neighbors.
  • Test your speed using an Ethernet cord – Plug your computer directly into the modem using an Ethernet cord. This will help you determine whether the issue is based on low speeds or a weak Wi-Fi signal.
  • Boost your Wi-Fi to get a stronger signal – If your issue is a weak Wi-Fi signal, not necessarily slow internet speeds, there are several steps you can take to boost your Wi-Fi signal, including angling your antennas, moving your wireless router and purchasing a Wi-Fi repeater. You can also compare other home Wi-Fi options.

Internet speed test FAQs

What is the fastest internet speed I can get?

AT&T offers a 5 Gig plan with 4,700 Mbps in download speed in select areas. Some ISPs are launching 10 Gig plans in 2023.

Common internet connections include cable, dial-up, DSL, fiber-optic and satellite. Your internet speeds may depend on your internet connection type. For instance, many cable internet providers have you share bandwidth with your neighbors. In the case of DSL, the further you are from the primary connection, the slower your speeds will be.

According to Ookla, Spectrum was the fastest internet service provider in March 2023 at 234.80 Mbps. Cox and Xfinity came in above 200 Mbps as well.
