Speedtest sends a very large amount of data over your Internet connection. Although it can be a good saturation test to measure your maximum available bandwidth at a particular moment in time, it is inappropriate to use for continuous testing and monitoring. In contrast, our test traffic is specifically designed to be very lightweight so it can run continuously.
However, if you would like to run a traditional Internet speedtest on occasion, we provide a convenient link right on our web page. We also provide a Local (Wi-Fi) Speedtest directly on the I/O Monitor which can be accessed via the Local Website page. This test is completely independent of your Internet connection and is designed to help you easily verify and optimize your Wi-Fi coverage within the home.
