Verizon Fios speed test

Check your Verizon Fios speeds for free and discover ways to boost your internet speeds.

Test your Verizon Fios internet speeds

A speed test is the best way to see what download and upload speeds you are getting from your provider. The speed test below will test speeds from any provider, including Verizon Fios. Try checking your connection a few times throughout the day to see if your results change at peak usage times.

Take the test, compare your results and see what you can do to get faster internet speeds. And if you find that you need a faster plan, we can help with that, too.

How to use the Verizon Fios speed test

Click “Start” below to begin the speed test. The test will first measure “ping,” or how long it takes to establish a connection with the server. Then the test will receive a small bit of data to measure your download speed. Lastly, the test will send a small bit of data to measure your upload speed.

Tips for getting accurate Verizon speed test results

Before starting your test, there are a few steps you’ll want to take to ensure it is accurate. These steps are not necessary to take the test. 

  • Connect your computer directly to the modem using an Ethernet cable. If your internet plan advertises speeds above 100 Mbps, use a Cat5e, Cat6 or Cat7 Ethernet cable for the best results.
  • Disconnect any other devices that use the internet. This includes any device that may be connected to your Wi-Fi network, such as smartphones, tablets, smart TVs, Wi-Fi enabled cameras, etc. These devices can use up bandwidth and interfere with your test results, even if you aren’t actively using them.
  • Close any apps or webpages on your computer that may be using up bandwidth, such as video and music streaming apps or sites.

How fast should my Verizon Fios be?

Yes, but keep in mind that this will test the ability of your Wi-Fi router and connected devices, not necessarily the internet speeds you are getting from Verizon Fios.

Verizon DSL speeds range from 0.5 to 15 Mbps where available. These speeds are ideal for basic internet activities, such as browsing the web and social media, sending emails and streaming music or SD video.

Where available, Verizon Fios offers 200, 400 and 940/880 Mbps plans. Availability and price for Verizon Fios plans will vary by location. Upload speeds from Verizon Fios can reach up to 880 Mbps.
