Running a speed test is a very efficient way to evaluate the quality of our Internet connection. It also helps us to find out if we are not getting the service we paid for. This test informs us of our upload and download speed on our computer, mobile, or tablet. So, in case of connection problems, the speed test will tell us what is malfunctioning: our device, our Internet provider, or the website we are connecting to.
How do I run the Parlem speed test?
Are you sure you are getting the internet speed you are paying for? Do you know how fast your internet connection is? Have you measured your network latency? If you answered "no" to all of these questions, we recommend you run the Parlem speed test.
How do I interpret the Parlem speed test results?
You don't have to be tech-savvy to run the speed test. Just close all the applications or programs you have on your internet-enabled computer. You will get more reliable results if you connect your device to the router with an Ethernet cable.

Once you have done this, you can run the test. In a few seconds, the speed meter will examine your connection, and the results will appear on your screen. You will be able to see all the data relating to the quality of your connection (upload speed, download speed, average browsing speed, and latency/ping). Latency (ping) is how long it takes data to travel from your device to another location and back.
