Test your connection and compare it with the speeds you’ll get from our 100% fiber-optic plans.Run Speed Test
Let’s break down what each part of your speed test means.
Internet speed represents the maximum speed for which the service is configured and is based on the wired connection to the included fiber-optic gateway. Actual speeds may vary. Package price includes monthly internet access, a WiFi 6 fiber-optic gateway, and additional mesh WiFi units as determined by IQ Fiber installation technician.
Many internet service providers will “throttle” their internet speed throughout the day. This happens during busy times where most people are using the internet. Speeds are purposely lowered so that everyone at least gets some bandwidth, even if it’s less that what is promised.
This is an indication that your internet isn’t using fiber-optic. Cable and DSL use copper wiring, which can’t support symmetrical upload and download speeds. If you are frequently uploading content (working from home, gaming, or using cloud services) you’ll want fiber-optic speeds and WiFi 6 technology you can rely on.
When choosing a plan, consider how many devices are connected to the internet at any given time in your home. That includes your cell phone, computers, smart TV, smart exercise equipment, and any other smart devices. The more devices you have connected, the more speed you’ll need. It’s also helpful to have more speed when you work from home or do a lot of gaming from your home.
