Why does speedtest.net show that my network speed is only around ~2 Gbps?
Speedtest.net is not ideal for testing accurate speeds. The maximum speed your browser will allow up to is 2.5 Gbps.
Instead you can use the Speedtest app! It is pre-installed on all Iced Out Servers by default!
Why does the Speedtest app show that my network speed is only around ~1 Gbps?
Inside of the Speedtest app, there are many testing servers. Some of these servers can only handle a network speed of 1 Gbps, while others can handle 10 Gbps.
For accurate speeds, you should only test servers inside of the Speedtest app that can handle up to 10 Gbps.
Here is a list of 10 Gbps testing servers:
– VA: Frontier, Shentel Service Company, Windstream, Sprint, Comcat
– NY: Hivelocity Hosting
– Chicago: The Fusion Network, Sprint, Windstream
How can I test on the Speedtest app?
First step, open the application which is already installed on the desktop of all of our servers.
Second, click on the server section to choose a testing server. Make sure that the server you choose is one from the list we have above!
Lastly, hit GO, and see the result!
