How can I test my connection?

On the device you wish to test, go to speedtest.net and click Go. 

  • Ping: the delay (latency) or how long it takes data to travel between its source and destination. We recommend a ping of 20ms or less.
  • Speeds: depending on how far the service is to the internet exchange, your speeds may vary. We recommend a minimum download speed of 5Mbps and a minimum upload speed of 1Mbps.

If you would like a better connection, we recommend first upgrading the router and, second, speaking to your ISP (internet service provider, i.e. Telstra or Optus) about the options available in your area.

 

Can we use 4G for the apps?

Yes.
