Do you experience slow data download and upload speed on your AT&T Internet Broadband? Are you paying for more than what you are expecting from your ISP? Well, this problem occurs when your Internet connection has got into some problem due to one of the factors affecting the Internet speed. Your ATT Internet connection needs a health check at this point. And this health check means a smooth and reliable speed test performed on your broadband Internet.
The AT&T speed test is done by using a third party reliable speed test service. This testing tool checks your broadband speed by sending huge chunks of bytes and receiving huge chunks of bytes to determine the actual Internet speed of your connection. The downloading of random bytes from a remote server using AT&T Internet connection is the download speed of your Internet. The uploading of random bytes using your Internet connection from your computer to some remote server is called upload speed. Both the download speed and upload speed affects Internet performance in one way or the other. The download speed is responsible for whatever data you are downloading from the web to your computer. E.g., when you watch online movies, listen to online music, or browse the web, or download any file from Internet, the time taken to download the data depends upon the download speed of Internet connection.
The speed test tool checks various parameters upon initialization, and those factors are considered vital for Internet performance. The major factors which affect the speed of your net are jitter, latency, download speed, upload speed, and the distance between the remote server and your computer. Every request initiated from your computer is sent to the remote machine where the requested resource is located and loaded from.
The Internet speed can be checked very easily by this tool. You need to click the start button at the top of this page, and the speed test initiates instantly.
First of all, check your AT&T Internet speed from this tool. If your actual Internet speed varies from what you are paying for, then you need to check several physical and non-physical factors to troubleshoot the problem behind the slow connection. If you find out that your actual download and upload speeds are slow, then consider contacting your ISP's support to confirm if the issue is from the backend or at your side. The slow Internet may also be due to extreme weather conditions or heavy-duty electricity cables outside your premises. It may also be due to high-frequency wireless signals around your device in case you have a wireless Internet.
If all is well, then check your LAN cable (either its damaged or broken), or the quality of your signals in case you have a WIFI.
