Why is my Nextlink internet speed slower than advertised?

The speeds Nextlink advertises are based on the maximum speed the internet connection is capable of, but these are not necessarily the speeds you will get on average. This is especially true for customers with wireless internet connections, which can be interrupted by weather and physical obstruction, something that doesn’t affect wired connections like fiber.

About our Nextlink internet speed test

The Nextlink 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 Nextlink internet speed test work?

Our speed test connects to a nearby server and sends test data over this connection. By looking at how long it takes for different files to travel over your connection, the test can analyze it. The idea is to measure the speed of your home’s internet connection, but if you’re connecting to the test over your Wi-Fi network, the test will be measuring the data traveling across both your home connection and through your router and home Wi-Fi, which can give a different result. It’s a good idea to physically plug your device into your router before running a speed test to get the best results.

Nextlink internet speed FAQ

How fast are Nextlink internet speeds?

Nextlink offers a wide range of speeds, with wireless plans reaching speeds up to 500Mbps and fiber plans reaching 1Gbps.

How do I get faster internet?

Nextlink offers some of the fastest wireless plans available; however, plans with wired connections like cable or fiber can generally reach much higher speeds than wireless connections. If you’re already on one of Nextlink’s high-speed wireless plans and still not getting the speed you need, check to see if there are fiber options available in your area.

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

Is fiber better than wireless?

Yes, if you have the option of a fiber connection in your area, it is almost always a better choice than wireless. Fiber has higher speeds and a more reliable connection than any other internet technology. Wireless plans are often cheaper than fiber overall, but fiber will always give you more speed for your dollar.
