Below, some recent samples of real speedtest.net results from Fastmetrics customers. These tests cover various Fastmetrics internet connection types.
What stands out about Fastmetrics speedtest.net results? Most Fastmetrics internet connections provide the added benefit of being symmetric. As a dedicated business ISP, we always strive to provide equal download and upload speeds.
Why is a symmetric internet service connection better? Most Internet Service Providers do not offer symmetric service. As most speed test results prove, upload speed is often an after thought. Many ISPs only market their download speeds (it looks much better).
Faster upload speeds are more important for internet users of today. The growing usage of cloud based services and applications, makes faster upload speeds a necessity.
Something not seen via the below speed tests is the unlimited data Fastmetrics includes. The growing need for bandwidth is crucial for streaming, video, gaming and other internet based services. There are ISPs who cap their bandwidth or data usage – you pay extra fees for exceeding those caps.

Most of the speedtest.net results below are from our fiber internet service connections. (Note: San Francisco as the primary location. This is where our data center is. However, our service covers the entire Bay Area).
Fiber is the most popular internet service we provide to our business customers. It meets bandwidth heavy demands, is highly reliable and supports multiple users and apps. 250 x 250 Mbps fiber is popular. Fiber service up to 1Gbps upload and 1Gbps download, we can provide or scale fo our faster growing customers.
