Why is my Brightspeed internet speed slower than advertised?

Although Brightspeed advertises top speeds of 1Gbps, the average speeds on our speed test are much slower because most of the provider’s customers have DSL internet plans that can’t reach past 100Mbps. Brightspeed’s fiber services bring up the average, but most users can expect speeds on the slower side from this ISP.

About our Brightspeed internet speed test

The Brightspeed 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 Brightspeed internet speed test work?

Our Brightspeed speed test works by sending a signal to a nearby test server and measuring how long it takes for the server to respond. The test also 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 takes to collect and deliver the data and the amount of network bandwidth used in the process.
