NOTE - This speed test utility provides an estimate of the connection speed between the computer running the test and the POPP Network Operations Center in Golden Valley, MN.
The accuracy of the test may be compromised by any of the following factors:
- Resource Limitations (CPU, Memory, etc) on the computer running the test
- Resource Limitations or restrictions on your firewall appliance or LAN equipment
- Other end-users on your LAN network consuming WAN bandwidth
This test can only measure available bandwidth on the WAN connection. For example, if you have a 5Mbps WAN connection and other users on the LAN network are consuming 2Mbps of the bandwidth, the highest possible speed test result would be 3Mbps.
The optimal time to run a speed test is during periods of low network utilization at your organization
