Leased Line - how to test?



  • Hi folks,

    I've got a new leased line 1000/1000Mbps. What are some good methods to test the line speed?

    Initially, I ran a quick speed test on speedtest.net, which selected a 'server based on ping', and for 750 Mbps DL, and 790 Mbps UL, which is significantly lower that 1000Mbps - but I expect that speedtest.net is not really an accurate test.

    How should I test this?

    Best,
    Jim



  • You need to test with raw equipment on each end of the line, not things going to the outside world. But leased lines have a line speed, there's really no need to test. Since there is nothing shared, you know you are getting the speed.
