Internet Speed Test


Welcome to the SourceForge Speed Test. This speed test is uniquely designed to test your current Internet connection speed for Latency/Ping, Jitter, Downl
Speed, Upload Speed, Bu er Bloat, and Packet Loss. Upon completion, you will be noti ed as to what types of services your connection is capable of handlin
as well as additional reports about your connection. This HTML5 speed test does not require Flash or Java, and works on all devices including tablets and
smartphones. Please click the 'Test Now' button below to begin the test! This test utilizes WebSockets for latency, jitter, and bu er bloat measurements.

What does this HTML5 speed test do?


This speed test will test your Internet connection speed, including a signi cant amount of additional
information such as latency/ping, jitter, download speed, upload speed, bu er bloat, and packet loss,
in order to provide you a detailed report on what type of services your connection can support. These

services include VoIP (voice over IP) (/business-voip/?source=speedtest), live video streaming such as
YouTube or Net ix, gaming, and more. Unlike most speed tests, the SourceForge speed test does not
require Flash or Java, and instead uses more universally compatible HTML5, which allows the test to
run on all devices including tablets or smartphones. While the speed test is running, the Internet speed
meters will animate. These Internet speedometers will provide information about your Internet
connection speed in realtime.

What makes my connection VoIP capable? First, you should test your internet to see what speeds you
are currently running in your home or o ce. If you receive a satisfactory result, then great! You are
ready for a VoIP service. An unsatisfactory result, however, can be remedied by checking and
performing the following steps:

Check the total number of devices on your network. The larger the number of devices on your
network, the more competition there is for your bandwidth. This is often referred to as network
congestion.

2 Inspect your wiring. Poor results can occur due to loose connections or old wiring in your
network.

3 Update your hardware. Out of date devices (like modems and routers) can signi cantly slow down
your connection.

We aim to provide you with detailed results so that you can know your speed, quality of connection,
frequency of data packets, and other pertinent information. Our test is structured so that you can
better understand how your current Internet connection functions and whether or not it is currently
VoIP-capable.

What makes for a quality Internet


connection?
Understanding your speed test results is entirely important, especially because your
results can help you determine what your connection is capable of handling. But to b
it down simply: your results are how e ciently data ows through your connection. T
is especially important for a VoIP phone solution, which relies upon a solid Internet
connection to send, transfer, compile, and receive data packets (which are transform
into audio).

It is also important to determine what type of VoIP you need: business VoIP or
residential VoIP.

For business VoIP, one thing you should take into consideration is how bandwidth is
being distributed. Your devices are all competing for bandwidth; and naturally, the m
devices on your network, the slower your connection can be. This is also the case for
number of employees on your system.
For residential VoIP, your connection is shared between all of your home devices. Th
online gaming, downloads, video streaming services, mobile and tablets. These are a
popular uses for a home Internet connection. But this might not be the only hinderan
to your overall connection speed. Select Internet Service Providers (ISPs) stream data
di erently based up on what they believe are popular uses for a home Internet
connection.

What do my test results mean?


After running the speed test, you will be presented with a number of results in di erent
formats. But what do these numbers mean? Here is a brief explanation as to what your
test results mean in relation to your current broadband connection:

1 Latency/Ping:
the measurement of the time it takes a single packet to be sent from your computer to a
remote computer and then back.

2 Jitter:
the measurement of consecutive latency test results. Your ideal jitter result is as close to
zero as possible.

3 Download Speed:

less a measurement of speed, this is how many bits per second can be downloaded from
one computer to another via the Internet.

4 Upload Speed:
less a measurement of speed, this is how many bits per second can be uploaded from
one computer to another via the Internet.

5 Bu er Bloat:
a measure of latency, it is a test performed when your connection is under stress. This is
usually achieved by running a bandwidth test to maximize your connection.

6 Packet Loss:
the measurement of how many data packets arrive at their intended destination when
sent from a computer. Ideal packet loss is zero percent.

How can I improve my connection?


For VoIP to work e ciently, you need to have an Internet connection that is reliable a
high-speed. That being said, there are a few things you can do to improve your curre
Internet connection to ensure that you are running the fastest speeds possible:

1 Run our Internet speed test above - running our speed test is the rst thing you
can do to determine what speeds you are currently running. If your results
displayed are appropriate for VoIP, then you can safely say that your connection
not to blame. You can then contact your

2 If you receive results that are less than satisfactory, youll rst want to check a
see what other devices are competing for your bandwidth. This means that you
should make a list of all of the phones, tablets, computers, etc. that are currently
using your Internet connection.

3 Do not use VoIP with a WiFi connection to test your speed or run a VoIP syste
Instead, you will want to plug your VoIP adapter or device directly into the modem
that your ISP gave you. By doing so, you will be able to directly access your home
business network to assess any issues. This will keep any outside interference fro
inhibiting your testing abilities.

4 If you still receive unsatisfactory speed test results, the issue is very likely with
your Internet Service Provider (ISP). You will want to contact them directly for
support so that you can make sure your connection is VoIP-capable. However, if y
receive satisfactory results, then you can assume that your home or business
network is the problem.

5 To assess home or business network issues, you will want to plug a computer
directly into the next device that is upstream of your modem, which is usually you
router. After hardwiring into this device, you will want to run the speed test again
Satisfactory results will mean that your network behind your router is the culprit
and you will therefore be able to eliminate your ISP and your router as potential
problems.

6 Follow your wiring upstream. Youll want to repeat the same process as above
all of your devices connected through your network. Run a speed test at each

interval until you receive an unsatisfactory speed test result. This will help you to
determine where the problem exists in your network. And sometimes the x is as
simple as just replacing an Ethernet cable or a piece of hardware.
