Getting the Speed You Need Without Limits

Posted by FreedomNet

Getting the speed you need without limits is crucial when using the internet for daily activities. For many who use the internet in their daily lives, internet speeds are usually a very important factor to be taken into account. Having the proper amount of bandwidth required for certain activities can mean the difference between being able to watch a movie online, or being able to download and upload your files to the cloud in a timely manner. And while many companies have internet speeds capable of these sorts of activities, they frequently limit the data their users have access to on a per monthly basis. FreedomNet Solutions prides itself in not only being able to provide the speeds that are necessary for streaming movies and playing video games online, but our no limits internet guarantee ensures that you do not have to pay more for a service that is set at a fixed monthly rate.

But how do you know if you are in fact getting the speed you need without limits? There’s an easy, free way to do this by going to any one of a number of free to use websites that allow you to test your internet speeds in real time. The most common, and one of the most reputable websites, is www.speedtest.net, which allows users to simply click on one button and the subsequent speed test will take an aggregate reading of your internet speeds for you to compare. There are a few things that the user should keep in mind when running speeds test, namely factors that may skew the results of the test itself. The proper steps to take when running a speed test are as follows:

  1. Locating a device with a single “In” Ethernet port, the most commonly available is usually a laptop
  2. Locate your router that internet connection comes though
  3. Locate the ethernet cable that supplies internet to the router, usually highlighted in yellow or marked separately from the other Ethernet ports that allow multiple devices to be connected
  4. Unplug the Ethernet cable from the router and plug it into the internet device you will be using for your test
  5. Go to speedtest.net and click “Begin Test”
  6. Let you test run until you have results that show a ping time, download speed, and upload speed

If you do not have an Ethernet device you can directly connect into, you can still run your speed test wirelessly through your router. To minimize the chance that another device may be using bandwidth that can skew the test results, please use only one device for the test. Also be sure to close all background applications on the device that is being used for the test.
