ADSL Speed Test

Why Test your ADSL/DSL/Cable/Modem speed? Simply to know actual download and upload speed when surfing web. It's important to choose or evaluate an ISP (Internet Service Provider). Many speed test websites calculate bandwidth via downloading and uploading a block data from their website. However, you probably need to know speed when surfing other websites; then it won't work.

Bandwidth Monitor offers a new way to test ADSL/DSL/Cable/Modem speed. You can directly see real-time download and upload speeds in graphic and text when you're visit a website. And the software logs your bandwidth usage and alerts you when it reaches a pre-set amount.

Please follow instructions below to test ADSL/DSL/Cable/Modem speed.

  1. Free Download the Bandwidth Monitor software
  2. Install Bandwidth Monitor by instructions
  3. Overview of main window of the software

What is ADSL?
Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Line (ADSL) is a form of DSL, a data communications technology that enables faster data transmission over copper telephone lines than a conventional voice band modem can provide. It does this by utilizing frequencies that are not used by a voice telephone call. A splitter - or micro filter - allows a single telephone connection to be used for both ADSL service and voice calls at the same time. Because phone lines vary in quality and were not originally engineered with DSL in mind, it can generally only be used over short distances, typically less than 4km.

What is DSL?
DSL or xDSL, is a family of technologies that provides digital data transmission over the wires of a local telephone network. DSL originally stood for digital subscriber loop, although in recent years, the term digital subscriber line has been widely adopted as a more marketing-friendly term for ADSL, which is the most popular version of consumer-ready DSL. DSL can be used at the same time and on the same telephone line with regular telephone, as it uses high frequency, while regular telephone uses low frequency. Typically, the download speed of consumer DSL services ranges from 256 kilobits per second (kbit/s) to 24,000 kbit/s, depending on DSL technology, line conditions and service level implemented. Typically, upload speed is lower than download speed for Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Line (ADSL) and equal to download speed for the rarer Symmetric Digital Subscriber Line (SDSL).

What is Cable modem?
A cable modem is a type of modem that provides bi-directional data communication via radio frequency channels on a cable television (CATV) infrastructure. Cable modems are primarily used to deliver broadband Internet access in the form of cable Internet, taking advantage of the high bandwidth of a cable television network. They are commonly deployed in Australia, Europe, and North and South America. In the USA alone there were 22.5 million cable modem users during the first quarter of 2005, up from 17.4 million in the first quarter of 2004.
