Close All Answers | Show All Answers

What is the purpose of the Speedtest?

The purpose of the Speedtest is to measure the JARING Broadband Internet connection between your device (notebooks or mobile phone) and JARING's local internet gateway.

What does the Speedtest measure?

The Speedtest is to measure the download and upload speed of JARING's connectivity.

Why is it that sometimes the Speedtest results show higher speed when compared to the speeds when surfing and downloading from the internet?

The Speedtest measures the speed from your device to JARING's local internet gateway. It does not measure the speed to the servers where you are accessing. Please note that the following factors need to be considered as it will impact your experience:
  1. Performance of the particular device that you are using.
  2. The utilization of the international network.
  3. The utilization of the overseas network provider.
  4. The performance of the server being accesses.

What system requirements do I need in order to do the test?

  1. Adobe Flash Player 8.0 or higher is required.
  2. Firefox 3 (all prior versions should work fine).
  3. Internet Explorer 7 or higher.
  4. Safari 4 (version 3 should also work fine).

What do you mean by throughput?

Throughput is the amount of data that can be transferred over the internet at any point.

Why did I get different results when I use a Speedtest other than JARING?

These are the factors that may contribute to the different results:
  1. The protocol used: ping or http.
  2. The location and distance of the server i.e., where the Speedtest is hosted.
  3. The performance of the test server.
  4. The internet connectivity and the connectivity speed.
Any complaints on the broadband connectivity speed, JARING will base the reading from the JARING's Speedtest.
