Internet Speed Test
What is a good internet speed?
The minimum requirement for good internet speed is at least 5-25 Mbps download and 3-5 Mbps upload, as defined by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). But you’ll get better results with an internet plan that supports download speeds between 40–100 Mbps.
That said, no one wants to overpay for internet speed. You can use our How Much Speed Do You Need? Tool to generate a personalized internet speed recommendation based on how your household uses the internet. Find that sweet spot of sufficient download speed without overpaying for speed you won’t use.
Speeds you should expect from different types of internet
|Typical speed range||Max speeds up to|
|DSL||10–25 Mbps||100 Mbps|
|Cable||50–100 Mbps||1,000 Mbps|
|Fiber||100+ Mbps||2,000+ Mbps|
|Satellite||20–35 Mbps||100 Mbps|
|Fixed wireless||5–25 Mbps||1,000 Mbps|
