If you suspect your slow speeds are the result of your internet provider throttling your connection, the easiest way to determine if you’re being throttled is to perform two speed tests. Run the first test on your regular network, then run the second one on a VPN. If the two speeds are drastically different (and the VPN test was higher), your internet provider may be throttling your speeds.

Take a speed test to see what download and upload speeds you are getting. For the best results, perform the test over a wired connection. View our speed test guide for a full breakdown of your results. If you want faster speeds, consider these tips for boosting internet speed, or shop for faster internet plans in your area.

Using your own router is a good way to cut internet costs without having to downgrade your internet plan. You can also try negotiating for a lower price with your current provider, or switch to another internet provider to take advantage of introductory pricing and special promotions.
