This internet speed test automatically benchmarks the network speed used to browse this web page, defining your internet speed, and providing the two best speed-equivalent home internet plans available on the Canadian market. Take a close look at the presented options, as you may be overpaying for your actual home WiFi connection. Also, ensure it uses your home's postal code to show plans available in your specific location. For additional internet plan options, you can perform a complete search.

How to interpret the results of my speed test?

The speed test provides a measurement of the performance of your internet connection, expressed in Mbps, which reflects the capacity of your home network. The higher this number, the faster your connection is, allowing for online activities requiring high bandwidth.

To assess the full operability of your connection, compare the measured speed here with that advertised in your internet package. If you find that your speed is lower than 80% of the advertised speed, it is recommended to contact your service provider. Above, you will also find options for alternative packages based on the measured speed.

Mbps (Megabits per second) is the unit of measurement indicating the number of millions of bits of data transferred in one second.

Download speed represents the rate at which you can download data and differs from your connection speed. Generally, download speed reaches between 70% and 90% of the speed advertised in your package.

Tip for Saving

The ideal internet package for you isn't automatically the fastest. Take the time to analyze your needs to be sure you're not paying for high speed when you don't need it. The above speed test presents alternative packages; check the prices offered to see if you're not currently paying too much for the speed provided. For more search options, conduct a personalized package search.

Why should you test your internet speed?

There are several reasons why you might want to test your internet speed. First off, you have a right to know how your WiFi is performing. If you're paying for a high-speed plan, you deserve to know if it's actually conducting itself quickly. Additionally, our speed test also informs you of precisely how much you should be spending on a plan. If you're in search of a new plan, using our speed test is a great place to start.

More about our WiFi speed test

PlanHub's WiFi speed test uses your public IP address to find an approximate location of your connection. During the speed test, our website displays your device's performance, not your modem's. Many factors like site traffic, latency and network infrastructure may influence your speed. As a result, it's normal for your results to differ from the speed which your plan advertises. However, if the difference is substantially large, you might want to consider contacting your provider or searching for a new plan.
