Tips for Getting an Accurate Spectrum Speed Test Result
Always Restart Your Modem/Router and Computer/Device
Restarting your modem and router is the most standard and proactive step to take. Similarly, restarting the device that you’re testing your Internet speed from, also has an impact. An accurate Spectrum speed test relies on the performance of your hardware. And, restarting these devices helps bring them back to the optimal functioning status.
Limit Internet Usage
When running a Spectrum speed test, one of the most important rules is to not use the Internet during that time. No music streaming in the background, smart speaker playing music or Wi-Fi security cameras uploading HD video etc. Just turn off the Internet on all connected devices to get the best speed test results.
Clear Your Browser's Cache
Most speed tests work by uploading or downloading one or multiple files of specific sizes, and calculating the speed based on the time it takes for the activity to complete. If you're testing multiple times in a row, results after the initial one may be affected by those files already existing in the cache. So before running the Spectrum speed test, clear the browser's cache.
