What do your speed test results mean?


When you run our speed test you will see two speedometers measuring Upload Speeds (on the left) and Download Speeds (on the right). In most cases, you should keep an eye on the download speed as this impacts most common online activity.

The results will depend on the type of internet connection you are using.

What download speed should you see?
Plan Type Maximum Speed Typical Speeds*
NBN Basic (12) 12 Mbps 5 Mbps^
NBN Standard (25) 25 Mbps 15 Mbps^
NBN Standard Plus (50) 50 Mbps 30 Mbps^
NBN Premium (100) 100 Mbps 60 Mbps^
ADSL2+ 24 Mbps 5 - 10 Mbps
Cable
w/ Speed Boost
30Mbps
100Mbps
20 - 25 Mbps
70 - 80 Mbps
Mobile Broadband (4G) Telstra: 1000Mbps
Optus: 450Mbps
Vodafone: 300Mbps
30 - 60 Mbps

* Typical Speeds are a rough estimate of what the speed you might experience but your experience will vary.
^ Typical NBN speeds are based on current ACCC guidelines for speeds customers should see during peak hours in the evenings, between 7pm and 11pm.

What is a good internet speed?

You could argue that a good internet speed is getting the maximum for the plan you pay for, but in reality there are a number of reasons why you might never see these maximum speeds. Annoying as this sounds, the answer relies on a number of factors that relate to your specific circumstances. 

In general, if you experience speeds similar to the Typical Speeds listed above, and if you can use the internet for the things you need it for, then you could consider this a good result.

If your connection is often significantly slower than these estimates, especially during the important peak times in the evening, you should speak to your provider about a remedy.

What can I do if my speed is slow?

Once you have run multiple tests and you have determined that your speed is slow, your best course of action is to talk to your internet provider. They deal with these kind of issues every day and should be able to help troubleshoot connection issues with you. There are however some things that you can do yourself to try to improve that situation:
