In this blog, we'll explore how to use this tool and why it's essential for optimizing your online activities.
Connecting the Dots
These tests can also help reduce downtime and improve customer experiences by providing the data needed to make informed decisions about your IT (Information Technology) infrastructure.
In essence, speed tests are more than just a measure of internet speed; they're a proactive tool for maintaining a reliable and efficient work environment.
What is Fusion Connect's Speed Test Plus?
Fusion Connect's Speed Test Plus is more than just a speed test; it's an internet quality test. While most speed tests focus solely on download and upload speeds, Speed Test Plus goes a step further. It leverages decades of experience to introduce new performance quality benchmarks like latency and jitter, which directly affect today's businesses and individual users.
Key Features of Speed Test Plus
Download and Upload Speeds
The tool measures the speed at which your internet connection transmits data to and from your computer, measured in Megabits per second (Mbps).
This measures how long it takes for a packet of data to complete a round trip between two points. High latency can result in delays in voice calls and slow webpage loading.
Jitter tests measure the variation over time of latency across the network. High jitter values may cause voice packets to be delivered out of order, affecting the quality of VoIP (Voice Over Internet Protocol) calls.
Why Should You Use Speed Test Plus?
Unlike conventional speed tests, Speed Test Plus offers a more holistic view of your internet connection, including factors like latency and jitter that could impact your bandwidth quality.
VoIP and Video Conferencing
If you're using your connection for VoIP calls or video conferencing, understanding these additional metrics can help you choose a higher-quality service.
If you experience slow speeds or poor quality, the tool provides tips for troubleshooting, such as using a wired connection and rebooting your modem.
