Why is my Astound Broadband internet speed slower than advertised?

Your speed may be slower than your plan’s advertised speed because you have faulty or outdated equipment. Slower speeds can also result from running the test during heavy internet use in your home, traffic congestion between you and the remote server, equipment issues in your neighborhood, or issues within your provider’s core network.

About our Astound Broadband internet speed test

The Astound Broadband internet speed measures three things:

Download speed: The speed at which your device pulls data from the internet. Usually measured in Mbps or Gbps.

Upload speed: The speed at which your device sends data to the internet. Usually measured in Mbps or Gbps.

Latency (Ping): The time (measured in milliseconds) it takes for a signal to travel from your device to an internet server and back. Lower latency means your connection has a better response time for activities like gaming and livestreams.

How does the Astound Broadband internet speed test work?

First, the test client on your device determines your location and finds the closest server. It then sends a tiny bit of data to the remote server, which sends a bit of data back to the client. The client records the amount of time the exchange used and then repeats the test a few more times. The test ends, and the client presents the lowest roundtrip measurement in milliseconds. This is your latency.

Next, the client (your device) establishes multiple connections (called threads) to the remote server and requests test data. As the client downloads this data, it measures the speed and makes adjustments as necessary—like opening more threads and requesting more data—to maximize the full bandwidth of your internet connection. The test ends at the predetermined time, and the client presents your current download bandwidth in megabits per second.

The upload test works in reverse: the client sends test data to the server and takes measurements. The test ends at the predetermined time, and the client presents your current upload bandwidth in megabits per second.

Astound Broadband internet speed FAQ

How fast are Astound Broadband internet speeds?

The fastest cable internet plan you can get from Astound Broadband is 1,200 Mbps—up to 940 Mbps with fiber internet. Astound also provides other speeds across its four networks, but availability and pricing depend on where you live.

Why is Astound Broadband’s upload speed slower than its download?

Uploads are slower than downloads due to how cable internet providers distribute bandwidth across their networks. In the early days of cable internet, providers assumed customers needed more download speed than upload, so they have partitioned each customer’s total bandwidth accordingly. Upload speeds are typically 3% to 30% of the download speed, depending on the plan. However, you shouldn’t see slower upload speeds with fiber.

How do I get faster internet?

You can get faster internet by upgrading your internet plan. If you can’t upgrade your current speeds and feel stuck with bad service, you can also switch to a new provider.

Run a search with your zip code below to see what kinds of speeds you can get in your area.

Is fiber better than cable?

Technically, fiber and cable can achieve the same speeds, but for now, you can get equal upload and download speeds only with fiber internet. Plus, the fastest fiber plan available is 10,000 Mbps—cable internet currently tops at 1,200 Mbps.
