How to use the Verizon Fios speed test
Before starting your test, there are a few steps you’ll want to take to ensure it is accurate.
First, 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.
Secondly, 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.
Once you’re plugged in and have disconnected other devices from your network, you’re ready for an accurate speed test. Click “Start Testing Speed” to begin the test.
