The performance of your internet connection only. No personal information or internet history / activity is recorded. The tests conducted are:
Download: The speed at which data can be transferred from the internet to your computer. Download speed is measured in megabits per second (Mbps).
Upload: The speed at which information is transferred from your computer to the internet. Upload speed is measured in megabits per second (Mbps).
Latency: When your data is sent over a network, it’s broken down into little ‘packets’. Latency is the total amount of time it takes for a packet of data to travel from your computer to the test server and back to your computer. The shorter the latency, the better.
Website Load: The time it takes for a specific website to fully load. This is a sort of combination test that includes download, latency and DNS in one test that accurately mimics real-world usage.
Jitter: Refers to the variation in the delay of received packets. Packets should be sent over a network in a steady, continuous stream and with the packets evenly spaced.
Packet Loss: Is the number of packets that are sent over a network that don’t make it to their destination. High packet loss can impact streaming media services and online gaming.
DNS: The Domain Name System (DNS) connects the website address to the actual website. Put simply, the DNS translates the website names, such as www.accc.gov.au, to their respective numerical IP addresses that are needed for locating and identifying computer services and devices. If you’ve entered a website address and the website won’t load, then you may have a DNS problem.
