Why is my Quantum internet speed slower than advertised?

Advertised speeds usually indicate the maximum speed you can expect over a wired Ethernet connection. Wi-Fi speeds tend to be slower than wired connections, though the gap is getting narrower as Wi-Fi tech continues to improve.

Your speed test results may also be slowed by other online activity taking up bandwidth on your connection, such as someone streaming video.

For the most accurate result possible, we recommend taking the speed test on a computer using an Ethernet connection and limiting internet use in your home as much as possible while running the speed test.

About our Quantum internet speed test

The Quantum 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 Quantum internet speed test work?

Our Quantum 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 download speed, upload speed, and latency (or ping rate).

Quantum internet speed FAQ

How fast are Quantum internet speeds?

Quantum’s fastest plan is 940Mbps, which is considered a gigabit connection. It’s more speed than most households can utilize. Quantum’s 500Mbps plan is more than enough internet speed for most customers.

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 internet better than cable and DSL?

Fiber internet is the best kind of internet service you can get; it’s the fastest and most reliable. That doesn’t mean that other internet types can’t get the job done. For example, cable internet is the primary broadband service type in the U.S., and it’s so close to fiber in performance that most customers wouldn’t even notice the difference. It’s a similar situation with 5G fixed wireless internet.

DSL is another story. DSL’s bandwidth limits have a hard time keeping up with modern internet demands. Even when DSL can offer adequate speeds, like Ziply’s DSL plan, its performance will still be noticeably worse than a fiber or cable plan with similar speeds.
