There are internet providers and then there are INTERNET PROVIDERS. Take the speed test and see how fast (or slow) your internet connection really is. Then see how fast we can help you switch to your local i3 Broadband provider for the fastest high speed internet available – up to 1Gb.


The most important result from your broadband speed test is the 'download speed'. Your download speed is the rate at which your device is able to access content from the internet.

Siren sound. So, a high download speed will allow you to load internet pages instantaneously and enjoy online video streaming without buffering. On the other hand, a low download speed will leave you with long page load times and pixelated or laggy video streams.

Your upload speed measures the rate at which you are able to add content to the internet or send messages, pictures and videos to others. Upload speeds tend to be much slower than download speeds since most of us do much less uploading than downloading. So don’t worry if your download and upload speeds are vastly different.
