Fast fibre broadband is a guaranteed way to improve your experience online and your productivity. Whether you’re working in the cloud, downloading a film, online gaming, or browsing the web, there are limitless benefits to having a fast connection. If your connection is slow or unreliable, switching fibre broadband providers can help. Before you do so, conduct a broadband speed test.
What does a Zzoomm speedtest do?
A speed test assesses your upload and download speeds by using your internet connection. Sample packets of data, known as pings, are downloaded and uploaded from your device to a test server. For fibre broadband, an average speed range for downloading and uploading is more than 35 Mbps, which stands for Megabits per second. Sometimes the speed can exceed more than 300+ Mbps.
Another measure taken in the fibre broadband speed test is jitters and pings, both of which are measured in milliseconds (ms). A ping is the time it takes for your device, such as a smartphone or computer, to respond to a request. Pings are also known as latency. The more responsive your connection, the faster the ping measurement. The ideal amount of ping is less than 100 ms. The ideal jitter measurement is less than 30 ms. Jitter is the amount the ping varies over a period of time. If you have a high jitter number, you may find your internet connection suffers from buffering issues when streaming or gaming.
Preparing your network for a Zzoomm speed test
Before you test the speed of your fibre broadband, make sure to follow these steps:
– Ensure all cables and connections into your devices are secure.
– Check that no one else is connected to your network, this is especially important when you have multiple users working off of one connection.
– Shut down all devices that emit signals, such as wireless doorbell systems, inter-connected kitchen devices, and virtual home assistants.
– Turn off any tablets, smartphones, or other devices, that could be unknowingly connected to your connection and test device.
– Do not download anything when the test is running.
– If you’re using a wireless hub with your fibre broadband, make sure you are less than 10m away from the hub and that there are no obstructions that could interfere, such as a wall.
– Conduct the test outside of weekday evenings as broadband networks become more congested after 7 pm.
– Check that you have closed any software that uses your broadband connection, such as music streaming services or cloud-based applications.

Why perform a Zzoomm speed test?
Running a speed test on your fibre broadband is invaluable for several reasons. First, it shows you whether you’re receiving the advertised speeds from your provider. Second, it is a useful tool for determining whether you have problems with your connection and troubleshooting problems. Speed tests will also show how the speed changes during the day and help you understand what time of day is recommended for uploading and downloading large amounts of data or big files.
Compared to traditional broadband, which is delivered via copper telephone lines, fibre broadband is superior for the following reasons:
– Maintains a strong signal over longer distances. So it matters much less where your device is situated, in relation to the main fibre outlet.
– Improved security. If someone wanted to tap a cable to steal data, they would have to cut the cable. Doing so would destroy the connection.
– Operates at a higher frequency. This boosts bandwidth and the overall connection speed.
– Very resistant to electromagnetic or human interference.
– Less latency-related issues. Good latency means data flows reliably between multiple users, improves voice calls and data transfer, and much more.
