Why is my Viasat internet speed slower than advertised?

Like most internet providers, Viasat’s advertised speeds are indicative of the maximum speed the internet connection is capable of, but not necessarily the speeds you should expect to receive consistently. Satellite internet connections like Viasat are particularly susceptible to environmental factors like weather and physical obstructions. If your internet is performing noticeably slower than usual, check your dish to make sure that it isn’t damaged or misaligned and check the surrounding area to make sure that its view of the sky isn’t obstructed by snow, debris, or trees.

About our Viasat internet speed test

The Viasat 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 Viasat internet speed test work?

Our speed test connects to the nearest test server and sends data files over your connection. By analyzing how long it takes for these files to go back and forth, the test can determine your connection speed and other important details. This will show you how fast your actual connection is.

To get an accurate measurement of your internet connection, plug your device directly into your router using an ethernet cable, rather than connecting over Wi-Fi.
