This speed test is hosted on NDTC's servers, so it is more accurate than the speed tests out on the Internet
because it is not affected by slow Internet links that are not under NDTC's control.
Since you are not on NDTC's network, there may be links that make this test inaccurate for you.
The Ookla Speed Test requires at least version 8 of Flash. Please update your client.
Thank you for using NDTC's speed test!
Interpreting Your Results
Our test determines the time it takes to download a large file to your computer and reports the resulting bandwidth in kilobits per second (kbps). A number of factors may affect bandwidth, so you may have to retest several times to get the most accurate results.
However, in general, if your Upload and Download Speed is roughly 85% of the rated connection speed for your modem or device, you're receiving acceptable throughput. If you're sharing a connection, you must take that into account. For instance, be aware of other bandwidth-intensive applications that may be being used on the network by other computers (or gaming consoles, Blu-Ray players, smart phones or tablets, etc) such as streaming movie and radio sites, game playing, and even viruses.
The typical rated speeds are as follows:
