Why is my Verizon internet speed slower than advertised?
Your Verizon internet speeds may be slower than advertised because of your router, the number of devices on your Wi-Fi, or other extraneous factors that typically impact an internet connection.
When internet providers often advertise the speeds on internet plans, those speeds usually represent a peak under ideal conditions. Realistically most people end up with speeds that are below that and it shouldn’t be cause for alarm. But if your speeds are far below what you’re paying for, then consider upgrading to a better plan or switching providers.

About our Verizon internet speed test
The Verizon 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 Verizon internet speed test work?
Our Verizon 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).
