What the Bandwidth Meter does

When you click the 'Go' button, an image file is downloaded to your computer from our servers. Download times are then used to calculate the bandwidth speed from your computer to our site.

What is the Bandwidth Meter?

The Bandwidth Meter DSL speed test measures the information-carrying capacity, or bandwidth, between the client and the server. In this case, the client is the user on the Bandwidth Meter, and the server is our Internet site located in the United States, Atlanta, Georgia.

Our servers are housed in a Class A data center with connections to multiple major backbone providers via multiple Gig-E, OC3 and DS-3 lines.

What does the Bandwidth Meter do?

During the initial 'spike test', a 50 Kb image file will be downloaded to help determine the throughput to your computer. Once the connection speed has been estimated, Bandwidth Meter DSL will then download a larger image file to your computer. The file size during final testing will vary between 50 Kb to 3.0 Mb.

Once the 'final test' is executed, the amount of time it takes for the larger file to be completely downloaded will be reported to our servers. The results of your test will be displayed adjacent to the maximum speeds offered by various types of Internet service.

Why do I want to use the Bandwidth Meter speed test?

Often, users perform this test simply out of curiosity, to see what the actual throughput is from their computer to our Internet site. However, in some cases, users have been able to troubleshoot their connections to the Internet by performing tests on the Bandwidth Meter DSL speed test.

What can affect the Bandwidth Meter results?

The bandwidth rate between your computer and our servers could be affected by many factors.

Some of the most common are:
  • The use of proxy servers.

  • Others sharing your Internet connection.

  • Performing other downloads at the same time that this test is executed.

  • Executing programs that use your bandwidth while this test is being run.

  • Being outside of the United States or far away from the location of our servers.

  • The quality of your connection.

    In many cases, users will discover they have ' line noise'. This is primarily caused by stray electromagnetic energy creeping into their wiring, which degrades the quality of signals in hard-wired circuits, e.g. telephone lines, cable systems, LAN connections. This causes data error correction to take place, effectively limiting the throughput.

  • Dial-up users: 56K modems are limited by FCC regulations to 53K.
