Why is my AT&T internet speed slower than advertised?
Your internet speeds are often slower than AT&T’s advertised speeds because your connection is impacted by a range of factors. Speeds may be slightly slower (or faster) than expected due to the router you use, the number of devices connected to your Wi-Fi, and whether you have any apps or browsers open while running the speed test.
We recommend testing your speed multiple times throughout the day to get the most accurate picture of the speeds you get. You can also see links below for recommendations on improving your home internet speeds.

How much internet speed do you need?
You need enough internet speed to ensure you can do all your daily online activities smoothly, without worrying about buffering, long load times or a dropped connection. Most internet users are happy with 100 Mbps, but you may need more if you share your Wi-Fi with a lot of other users or if you regularly do high-bandwidth activities like streaming movies in 4K.

About our AT&T internet speed test
The AT&T 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 AT&T internet speed test work?
Our AT&T speed test works by sending a signal to a nearby test server and measuring how long it takes for the server to respond. It then opens multiple simultaneous connections to the server to download and upload small pieces of data. Through that process the test is able to determine how long it took to collect and deliver the data and the amount of network bandwidth used in the process.
