Are you getting the promised data speed from your internet service provider (ISP)? Is your internet connection sometimes unreliable? If you answered yes to both questions, the only method to determine your internet speed is to do a speed test. Checking your internet speed on Google’s homepage is a straightforward and quick process. Although there are various websites and apps available to check your internet speed, one of the most straightforward techniques is to go to the Google homepage. Google collaborated with Measurement Lab (M-Lab) to develop a five-step process for determining the speed of your internet connection.
You will be connected to Measurement Lab (M-Lab) in order to complete the test, and your IP address will be shared with them and processed according to their privacy policies. To encourage Internet research, M-Lab performs the test and makes the findings available to the public. “Your IP address and test results are included in the published material,” Google said, adding that “no additional information about you as an Internet user is included.”
From the Google homepage, follow these five steps to test your internet speed.
1: Type Google.com into any internet browser on your computer, smartphone, or tablet.
2: Type ‘Run Speed Test’ into the search bar.
3: The ‘Internet speed test’ option will appear in a new dialogue window. “In less than 30 seconds, check your Internet speed.” “The speed test generally transfers less than 40 MB of data, but may transfer more data on fast connections,” the dialogue box stated.
4: Select the ‘Run Speed Test’ option in the menu.
5: A new window will open, presenting all of your internet speed information. Click the ‘test again’ button if you want to retest your internet speed.
