aroengBinang.org - If you are wondering how fast your home wifi internet connection speed is and want to check it out, here is the list of best WiFi speed test websites that you can use for free to find it out. Normally there will be different internet speeds during the day, as various factors may affect your home wireless network connection.

Your WiFi speed determines the time your computer or your smartphone takes to perform certain tasks online, especially when downloading and uploading files or movies. Therefore speed test websites measure mainly these download and upload speeds of your internet connection.

Some internet service providers (ISP) use symmetrical connection technology, i.e. you will have the same speed for upload and download, while other ISPs use asymmetrical connection with much slower speed for upload than download.

Your choice of internet plan (e.g., 20 Mbps vs 50 Mbps download speed) and internet service provider (symmetrical vs asymmetrical connection) will be the most important decisions to make for your home. The choices should be determined based on your primary need, and how many persons are connected to the internet in your home.

Even though you may subscribe to 50 Mbps internet speed, but the top speed will unlikely ever be achieved, and since most likely you use WiFi connection at home and hence this is where the WiFi speed test website comes in, to find out what your download and uploads speeds are. You may need to perform the tests over the course of the day under normal working conditions.

Here are a couple of considerations when choosing speed test websites: ease-of-use, fast, accurate, simulate common situation, simple design, wide server range locations, no bias, and of course free to use, preferably without the need to log in.

A bit of advise, make sure you use the latest 802.11ac WiFi router or wifi 5 router in your home to ensure you get the best possible internet connection speed.
