Tips for Checking Your Internet Speed

Here are a few useful tips to get accurate results when using the CenturyLink internet speed test tool.

Restart the Modem Restart the Modem/Router

Begin by restarting your modem/router before you initiate the CenturyLink Internet speed test tool. Just unplug the device for 15-20 seconds, plug it back in, and wait for it to stabilize before you run the test.

Connect via an Ethernet Cable Connect via an Ethernet Cable

We recommend directly connecting your device with the modem using an Ethernet cable for best results. Since a wired connection is always faster than WiFi, you will be able to get accurate information on the internet speeds and latency.

Disconnect Extra Devices Disconnect Extra Devices Connected to the Network

It is best to offload all the other devices from your network except the one you’ll run the speed test on. This way no additional bandwidth would be consumed, hence the accurate results.
