There are many factors that can influence internet speed. In many cases, restarting your router will resolve speed and connectivity issues. Other factors, such as peak usage times and speed throttling can also cause temporary speed issues.

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.

Speeds of 10 Mbps and higher are good for gaming, but what you really want to consider when choosing an internet service for gaming is latency, or ping. Latency is the measure of how long it takes for your device to communicate with the server and is the main contributor to lag. The higher the ping, the more likely you are to experience lagging. Shoot for an internet service with latency below 100 ms.

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.
