Conduct a Speed Test

Table of Contents

Need to confirm the speed of your Verizon connection? Utilizing the Verizon speed test enables you to verify the efficiency of your connection from the router to the Verizon network.

To ensure accurate results, it’s crucial to follow these steps before initiating the test:

  1. Direct Connection: Connect your computer directly to your router using an Ethernet cable. This ensures a stable and direct link for an accurate assessment.
  2. VPN Disconnection: Disconnect from any Virtual Private Networks (VPNs) that might be active on your device. VPNs can influence the speed test results, and disconnecting ensures an authentic evaluation of your Verizon connection.
  3. Solo Device Connection: Ensure that no other device is connected to your internet network during the test. Multiple devices sharing the same network can impact the available bandwidth and affect the speed test outcome.
  4. Minimize App Usage: Avoid using video or music streaming applications on the device undergoing the speed test. These applications consume bandwidth and can influence the accuracy of the test results.

Once these prerequisites are met, you can proceed to run the Verizon speed test, providing you with valuable insights into the performance of your internet connection.
