Gigabit Internet Speed Test

Fastmetrics Internet Speed Test Smashes Gigabit Speeds

We’ve been busy upgrading our ISP infrastructure to provide better services and support for our business customers. These improvements feature increased bandwidth and improved internet speeds. To back up these changes, our latest internet speed test shows some promising results;

The test was over fiber optics from our San Francisco Data Center. Very pleased to exceed 1Gbps on the download and the important upload speed!

A Gigabit per second download speed over fiber will typically download a 2 hour HD movie in less than 25 seconds. With the added 211.41Mbps over the Gigabit speed, we’re estimating that download can now be achieved in a sub 10 second time. A fast result in anyone’s book.

Such speeds are aimed towards supporting companies with large amounts of employees, or businesses with heavy bandwidth requirements. Find out if you’re business is suited to fiber here.
