What do the Xfinity speed test results mean?

Download speeds: The Xfinity speed test will first measure your download speed in Mbps, which is how quickly your internet connection can download data. This number is most important for activities such as surfing the web, streaming and downloading files. Download speeds of 25 Mbps and higher are considered broadband.

Upload speeds: The test will next measure upload speed in Mbps, or how fast your connection will upload data. This number is most important for activities such as video conferencing, online gaming and uploading files. Upload speeds of 3 Mbps and higher are considered broadband.
