Why is my Frontier internet speed slower than advertised?

Maximum advertised speeds are never guaranteed, as several other factors can reduce your speed, like faulty equipment, damaged cabling, and issues with the provider’s network. In general, Wi-Fi will always be slower than a wired connection, and internet speeds can also be slower than advertised if you have many devices accessing the internet simultaneously. Consult our guides below on how to troubleshoot speed issues, or reach out to Frontier for help.

About our Frontier internet speed test

The Frontier 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 Frontier 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 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.
