The best way to check the speed of your internet connection
Internet is a fundamental part of today's life but it is significant to understand the its nitty-gritty technicalities specifically while comparing with other Internet Service Providers (ISPs).

If you want to evaluate how your internet connection is working overall, you need to check your internet connection's speed at different times.

Here are different ways to check out how the speed test helps in evaluating your internet connection's performance.

1. Test your modem/router

Conduct a speed test and if the speed being provided by the Internet Service Provider (ISP) is slow, then check your modem or router. It has been found that the biggest cause of slow internet speed is a bad modem.

2. Virus scan

Viruses cause great hurdles in speed. So if the speed test is giving you least results then you need to scan your system for viruses. Malicious software and viruses slow down the speed of the device as well as bring down internet performance.

3. Check the filters

Although it is rare these days to have an internet connection bundled with a telephone line these days, but in case you have one, better check that there are good quality filters installed on the line. These little plugs attached to the phone line can filter out disturbances well enhancing the internet speed.

4. Remove external interference

In every other home, there are a whole bunch of Wi-Fi enabled gadgets like iPhone, iPad or a sound system etc. So, you need to check whether these devices are causing electromagnetic interference. It is preferred to move such devices out of the way and away from the modem.
