Our recommendations when running your speed test:

  • Turn your modem off for 30 seconds and then back on again
  • If you have an internal modem inside your desktop computer, please restart your computer
  • Once these steps are complete, perform a speed test using the ‘Run Speed Test’ link above making sure you select a Telstra speed test server
  • Test from a PC that is directly connected to the modem/router via a cable (Ethernet)
  • Close all applications that require an Internet connection and disable the Wireless Access Point of your modem/router
  • If you have a line splitter, please remove your modem/router and connect it directly to the wall socket to test
  • Conduct 3 consecutive speed tests at 3 different times of the day
