Broadband Report Card May 2014


Broadband Report Card 

May 2014

There's more to broadband performance than speed alone. We're measuring a range of different metrics to get the complete picture on performance of ISPs nationwide. This report card shows how your broadband connection has performed over the last month.



Downstream throughput

Downstream throughput (or download speed) is the most commonly associated metric with broadband performance. It dictates the rate at which your computer will be able to fetch content (e.g. web pages, pictures, music, video etc) from the Internet.

Latency is the measurement of how long it takes one packet to be sent to one of our test servers, and then returned back to you. This can effectively be thought of as the responsiveness of the connection between your home and our servers out on the Internet.

Packet Loss

Packet loss is relatively rare in modern networks. That said, some broadband providers have been known to suffer high packet loss at peak times. If this is the case for your ISP then you may find that time sensitive applications such as Voice over IP (VoIP) and online gaming will suffer.
