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.

Frequently Asked Questions About Spectrum

What is a good speed test result for Spectrum Internet?

A good speed test result for any Internet connection should give you a number that is within a decent range of what your plan promises to deliver. According to the FCC 95% of Spectrum customers experience approximately 94% of the advertised speed, which is quite remarkable for a Cable provider. This is a good benchmark for you to determine whether or not your Spectrum Internet speed test has given you a positive result or otherwise.

Different apps, games, or browsers running in the background can slow your connection. Stop all processes, and clear your cache before you run the test. And if you still face an issue, try resetting your internet modem and/or router using the My Spectrum app, and then re-run the speed test.

The fastest Spectrum speed tier is the Spectrum Internet Gig, which features up to 1,000Δ Mbps for downloads and 35 Mbps for uploads.
