Put Your Internet Speed to the Test!

Download Images to View

You’re paying for internet based on the speed you selected when you signed up for service. But how do you know if you’re actually getting the speed you’re paying for? There is a lot of false advertisement from other internet providers about how much speed you are receiving versus what you are paying for.

With a good router, you can trust that you are getting the speed you are paying for from MVT. Want to be sure? You can easily run an internet speed test at home. Here’s what you need to do:

  1. Visit speedtest.net. If you’re on a mobile device, you can also download an app called Speedtest by Ookla to run the speed test.
  2. Press Go and the speed test will begin running. It takes just about one minute, so sit back and watch.
  3. Get your speed test results!

The Ookla speed test provides you with two pieces of information: the speed of your connection and ping time. The speed of your connection is tested by measuring the amount of time it takes to send and receive a file. The ping time is the amount of time it takes for your device to receive a response from a small test message that is sent to the speed test server.

How to interpret your results:

  • The tested speed should match the speed you are paying for. You can find your speed on your bill. If you cannot find it, email our office or send a text to (844) 947-6573 and we will be happy to provide it to you.
  • A ping time under 100 milliseconds (ms) is considered normal. MVT’s typical fiber ping times are 3-5 ms while DSL is 30-40 ms.
  • If your speed test does not show the speed you are paying for, we’d love to talk! It could be the age of your router, location of it, or other interferences. You deserve to get the best and we are here to make sure you do!
