New Poll: Your Internet Connection Speed

Published by Chris Coyier

I think it would be interesting to get an idea of what the internet connection speeds are like for CSS-Tricks readers. Connection speed makes such a huge difference in the web browsing experience I hope that getting an understanding of what speeds people are getting will help us all kind that in mind when working on websites.

So go test your speed right now (Download Speed) and pick the most appropriate answer in the poll (in the sidebar). If a mobile device is your main connection, test that, otherwise use your main home/work connection.

Remember, "Mbps"

That's "Megabits per second." Somehow this has become the standard for measuring internet connection speed. Personally, I think this is insane. People understand the size of digital things in bytes, kilobytes, megabytes, gigabytes, and terabytes. Yet instead of using these common sizes that everyone understands, we use the "bit" versions of those, which are are 8x larger numbers. Because:

8 "Megabits" == 1 "Megabyte"
et al.

Let's stick with "Mbps" since that's what the speed tester reports.

Full, real time results for this poll and all post polls are in the polls archive.

    • I copied that response format from EmpreJorge because it seemed like a good idea to standardise, but it made me think: Semantically what would be the ideal way of presenting that data? A <dl> ? In this context it makes little difference, I doubt the comment system supports definition lists – or if it does I doubt it styles them in a meaningful way.

      You poor bugger, you only get .88!!! Is that normal? We live in Perth Australia and we get 5, and we thought it was slow mate. But what about bloody Sweden!!! But also I know in aussie you get what you pay for so it might be slower because were on a cheaper plan, for $70 a month I get free phone calls across Australia + 250,000MB.

      I am not sure what is going on there with my speed , yet i have the highest Ping from everyone .

    Interesting poll.
    Ping: 10 ms
    Average download: 30.04 Mbps
    Average upload: 31.54 Mbps (weird, isn’t upload usually less?)

    This was also interesting because there was a giant peak at the beginning of the download, which must be that way to make browsing web pages faster, whereas longer/bigger downloads will even out for me at 30 Mbps.

      Yeh – there was a peak for me too. Although I only averaged out at 5Mbps…. :-/

      Bell is terrible when it comes to Internet service. I’m not surprised with your stats. You’re probably paying more than you should too. Since you’re in Toronto, you might want to check out TekSavvy for their cable service.

    Still living in The Netherlands, but I might add that Speedtest also tells me that’s slower than 85% of the NL. I might add that I pay for an 8Mb/sec bandwith, but due to me living in the middle of nowhere, that gets capped by technical limits.
    An 8Mb/sec bandwith is average and private connections can get up to 20Mb/sec. My friend, who goes to the University at Enschede has a 100Mb/sec bandwith and is getting an upgrade to 1Gbit/sec, but that’s reserved for universities and organizations. Fiber optic connections are still sold as a delicacy over here, but that’s just a means of virtually keeping prices high.

    Hi Chris

    What about destination server ?

    This poll is so wrong on one thing, it doesn’t control the location of the destination server , speedtest.net by default will use the closest server based on user’s ip to do the test.

    ( Most people don’t even care to click and choose destination server to test, they will just click the test button. )

    So if you don’t ask everyone to use same exact destination ( maybe closest city or state in which css-tricks server is located ) then the result of this poll is almost useless.

    • Only if the question is “Who can download css-tricks.com the fastest?”. This is talking about connection speeds in general. Speedtest.net is far from ideal but having everybody use the same service and choosing their closest server is probably as good as it will get.

      Besides, I imagine Chris has the site set up to serve through a CDN so there isn’t really a “closest city or state in which css-tricks server is located”, it will be hosted around the globe.

    A true speed test would be if your ISP hosted a speed test page and you ran it against their server. This poll means absolutely nothing.

    • Permalink to comment#

      Absolutely nothing? That’s absolute hyperbole. You’re right in that we would see results slightly closer to a theoretical maximum if each ISP was hosting its own speed test, but ask yourself this: how many web sites do you visit that are hosted by your ISP? In terms of real world performance (i.e. connecting to external websites) these numbers are absolutely valid.

      @Dave Yeah, you’re totally right. But that’s not what this article is about. This article is about connection speed [ideally to the farthest hop inside your ISP].

    I have to agree with the others from NZ. Internet speed here, as a general statement, is awful. Which is unsurprising given that most of the country still uses copper cables which were never designed to be laid underground as they are. The only reason mine is so high is because I happen to live close to the major exchange for my town.

    By the way, I think part of the reasons megabits are used is because that way internet providers can abuse that higher number in marketing.

  111. First I have a note to make. Speedtest.net usualy suggests the closest server which in my case is in my town of Sofia, Bulgaria. And since Bulgaria has an excellent inner peer network the results are:

    Ping: 3ms

    Lets do the test again but with a server somewhere in Europe … lets say Vienna:

    Results skewed due to semi-broken router not connecting at full speed, and my girlfriend simultaneously watching movies on another computer…. I previously had results 6 times better.

    I keep wanting to take all the data and put it in a nicely formatted spreadsheet… but then I’d might as well visit some net speed statistics site.

    If nothing else, this poll is great because it’s interesting to see all the countries that CSS-Tricks readers come from :)

    I don’t think Chris meant to post your Internet Connection Speed here… That’s why he created poll, don’t you think so?

    It would be much more interesting to discuss wether you should take low-speed connection in considiration while developing a site. Or only during mobile development. And if you do so, what things do you consider?

    • Permalink to comment#

      Wow, I didn’t even notice the poll on the right hand side of the screen…. I was so busy looking at the comments. Even when you mentioned the actual poll, it took me a while to find it on the page. Interesting user interface design point for this site.

    • Me either. I even looked for it but it was below the fold and by the time I got to it, I was reading comments. That’s good ergonomic info to learn too!

      I like the comments better anyway.

    I can get faster with plans that are 2-3x more expensive. Canadian customers (especially those of us in Toronto) pay through the nose for pathetic speed with ridiculously small bandwidth caps. I’m lucky that I have a bandwidth cap of 300GB/month from an independent ISP.

    Equivalent speed DSL plans on Bell have caps as small as 25GB/month for 50% higher cost. At Rogers Cable a 12Mbps/0.5Mbps plan is 47% more expensive with a 60GB/month cap.

    I truly envy those of you in Europe & the Far East that have incredible speed and reasonable prices!

    The download number surprised me, I would have said more like 4.5 (it’s theoretically an 8Mbps connection, but this is ADSL and I’m a fair way from the exchange), but they keep upgrading the equipment at the exchange and things keep getting better (four years ago, this same connection wouldn’t do more than 2.5).

    Also, I pay for 24Mbps and I get this crappy speeds. But this is the internet policy in Greece. You either pay for 24Mbps (which is maximum now) and you hope some day to actually have that kind of Internet connection or you pay for 2Mbps (which is unbearable).

    So, stop whining you guys because you have ONLY 30 Mbps :P

      they forgot to tell you that you still get 2mbps-if the wires are over 5 kilometers from the exchange they cant send you 24 -for some reason the longer the wiring the working speed must be lower-so i think they are send you 2mbps

    A few variables affect these tests:
    a) Congestion – I’d never see these speeds during university term time, but it also changes moment to moment. Ordinarily I can’t watch even small videos.
    b) Proxies? – 1st test a few minutes ago only had a download speed of 8.??Mbps, the next 72.18Mbps. I can only assume the proxy is responsible.
    c) The test first selects the ‘nearest server’ and route to that will vary. Mine appears to be in Mozambique, which would mean it’s only a hop or two away on the country’s main undersea cable. Few hops on a fat pipe would be fast, but not so good if everyone were measured against the same server.
    d) Upload speed is not influenced by proxies and usually not much affected by congestion, so all 3 tests were around the 40Mbps mark – so probably reasonably close to the theoretical limit I could get (and way above the original download speed).

  213. I don’t mean to screw up the poll results, though I just gotta say, that mobile device network connection speed changes, often. User may be on a have a slow network connection when they initially visit your site, then they may be able connect to wifi, or 4G, or vice-versa.

    Network connection speed on mobiles will not always be consistent.

    In my opinion, only auditing the network speed once on mobiles is a bad idea if you are going to use that information to serve content/markup. I’ll save the rest of my thoughts for a blog post, but wanted to share this here.

    I believe the ONLY reason we are forced fed Megabits instead of Megabytes is because of marketing reasons. Numbers look much higher in Bits than Bytes, and during the Comcast Verizon, and Cox cable wars (many others I know) they needed their numbers to look sexy to the uninitiated. Who didnt know a bit was not a byte and saw it as being bigger than the competitor. Purely marketing.

    But we have the power. We dont have to copy what they do. We can choose to use megabytes. We have just chosen to go along with what was spoon-fed.

    One thing for everyone to keep in mind is the unscientific nature bandwidth testing in general. Speedtest.net has some requirements for their servers, but there are so many factors that go into the number you at the end of the test.

    Also, just because you pay for X mbps doesn’t mean that’s what you’ll get on a test like this. Not to say that your ISP is screwing you, but the number they give you is only guaranteed from your location to their servers – they can’t guarantee that you’re going to get that full bandwidth to Speedtest.net or any other server. There are going to be a certain number of network hops between your ISP and any server on the web that they can’t control.

    This is really interesting considering some of the comments and blogs I’ve been reading lately concerning page size. With these results, anyone suggesting up to 2Mb per page is ok is kidding themselves.

    Soon (up to 8 years till completion) Australia will have a new fibre network to speed things up, but I wish they’d hurry up!

    As you can see, it doesn’t even differ so much. China Telecom promises me far more than I am paying for and it is morning here now, so things are even faster than when Europe wakes up.

    Hope this helps for your “survey” :)

    I’m fairly happy with the service I’m getting. I paid for the highest uncapped amount, because… well… I’m the type of guy who goes on CSS-Tricks. (And that’s a good thing!)

    Really frustrating because we’re buffered on two sides by Joint Base Lewis-McChord (huge Army/Air Force base), which means relatively low population density and thus fewer, slower service options. My parents live 7 miles to the north and have 30+ Mbps service.

    Before 2009, any uncapped internet account was out of the price range of many companies, never mind individuals. Since then the Seacom cable has come online, connecting Africa and Europe. I believe the West African cable is due to come online next year, connecting the Western Cape to London and delivering the possibility of 20Mbps! Still, we have a far way to go to bring the prices of these connections down enough to make it affordable for the majority of South Africans and South African schools.

    This is through Vodafone mobile broadband, 100km out of Auckland, New Zealand, connecting to Auckland testing server! During “off-peak” times in a low-density area!
    My family of 4 uses just 8GB of data per month which costs roughly $75/month on a 2 yr contract.

    Now can people please shut up about their “slow” 5mbps internet and crappy service. Thanks

    The poll is strangely “well reparted”. Each category has almost 10%, with a slightly more aroud 4-8 and slighly less around 30-50 (but 11% over 50).

    My House #1 is in a rural place, outside the nearest town, my Internet package is of 8Mbps Download and 256Kbps Upload, but that is the best i can get. This is one of two Internet Providers in the area.
    My House #2 is in a large, seaside city, with lots of providers, here the Vodafone Package is a 25 Mbps Download and 2 Mbps Upload in optical fiber. Soon it will be upgraded to 50 Mbps, but maintaining the price.
    My Office is in the middle of the second biggest city in my country, where we have a multiple choice of providers with many offers. This package is a 100Mbps Download and 10Mbps Upload in optical fiber.

      House #1: 51 Euros/month
      House #2: 42 Euros/month

      All the three packages are triple play: Internet, TV and Phone.

    Sydney (just), Australia
    Since moving to where is basically the bush, I had to “downgrade” to ADSL 1
    I now regularly get faster download speeds (albeit still only at 7Mbps) than when I was on ADSL 2

    Upload speed is significantly slower, but I’m not a web host so I don’t particularly care

    I’m 51 dl / 15 ul. I’m usually around 48 dl /40 ul. I wonder why my up is slow… anywho, cool collection of speeds, mostly everyone here is quite fast.

      Mate that’s slow. How much porn were you downloading when you ran the speed test? :)

      How far from the exchange are you? Distance from your phone exchange has a significant impact on your ADSL speeds.

      What does your modem / router say it’s connecting at?

      At that speed, you couldn’t possible download as much as 500Gb in a month, so hardly seems worth the $100

      Mate we pay $70 a month in Perth
      and get free phone calls across Australia + 250,000MB, and we receive 5mbps. That’s with iinet but if you Google broadband plans theirs a fair few plans from different mobs, that is a bloody lot better then your mob is giving you mate.

    I pay $50 a month for 8/1, so needless to say, my IP is going to be recieving an irate call from myself today…

    BTW, Anyone who lives in Ontario – DON’T use Lara DSL (Teksavvy BS) they charge you the same amount as big providers for less than a fraction of the speed. They say they only started capping people to 320kilobyte per second download speeds as of Mid-2011, but I’ve had them for longer than that, and never thought that it might be a cap, I always just assumed it was the line speed (that’s what they told me)…

    Vigin media DL speed is good at low usage times , requires use of external DNS to improve perfomance. There is a problem in my area with jitter which can cause poor performance at times – costs £35 a month at the moment…….

Just went to leave to go with TechSavvy and Rogers dropped the price down to $68.02 taxes included. Admittedly I got off their 150Mbps package to 35 Mbps with unlimited bandwidth.

    I use Shaw Internet Speed 25Mbps Package:

    Dec.7/13 Speedtest
    Ping: 40 ms

    Download Speed: 22.74 Mbps; Download song (5 MB): 1.76 seconds; Download movie (800 MB): 4.7 minutes

    Upload Speed: 2.3 Mbps; Attach file to email (5 MB): 17.39 seconds; Send videoclip (35 MB): 2 minutes

    Quality: Excellent

    Prior to Shaw Tech visit, I was at about 10 Mbps Download. They replaced my modem/router and that improved the Download Speed. Upload Speed still seems rather turtoise-like! Perhaps, a more tech-savy individual could enlighten me on the Upload criteria.
