Tips and Tricks for Running a Speed Test on Multiple Devices
CVT Techs recommend running 4-6 speed tests in a row for an average result of all tests. Your best results will occur while connected via Ethernet cable to a computer running the speed test below (this requires Flash Player, so it will not work on mobile devices). You will see results dip on mobile devices and devices connected via WiFi and results may be lower if you have multiple devices connected at the same time.
Please run some tests on your computer and other devices and send add the results to our Solution Teams form below.
Speed Testing on a Computer
For BEST results, we ask that people speed test with their computers hard-wired via Ethernet cable to their modem. It is also highly recommended that you DISCONNECT all other devices- phones, tablets, computers, TV’s, etc from your network for most accurate results. (If that is not possible, the speed test will still work; it just may not be as accurate a reading as if the device is connected directly to the modem or if multiple devices are connected. It is always a possibility a connected device could be using some of your bandwidth and skewing the results, if left connected.)
Speed Testing on a Mobile Device: iPad, Android, iPhone, Tablet, etc.
