Why are my speed test results lower than I expected?

There are numerous reasons why your Speed test results may be slower than you expected. To ensure that your results are accurate make sure you;

  1. Use a wired Ethernet connection instead of wireless
  2. Stop or close any programs working in the back ground
  3. Ensure that your internet connection is not being saturated by others in the household e.g downloads, streaming, internet calls, etc.
  4. Restart your broadband route and the re-run the test

If the results are still the same it could be a fault of your broadband connection. Contact your supplier to check your connection.
