Test Your Internet Connection Speed

A note about speed test results - This speed test utility is designed to provide an estimate of the speed of the connection between the computer running the test and the server hosted in the POPP Communications Network Operations Center in Golden Valley, MN.

The accuracy of the test may be compromised by any of the following factors:

  • - Resource limitations (CPU, Memory, etc) on the computer running the test.
  • - Resource limitations or restrictions on your firewall appliance or LAN equipment.
  • - Other end-users on your LAN network consuming WAN bandwidth.
    • This test can only measure the available bandwidth on the WAN connection. For example, if you have a 5 Mbps WAN connection and other users on the LAN network are consuming 2 Mbps of the bandwidth, the highest possible speed test result would be 3 Mbps.

The optimal time to run a speed test is during periods of low network utilization at your organization.

The Ookla Speed Test requires at least version 8 of Flash. Please update your client.
