How Starlink Speed Test Works


Our Starlink speed test utilizes latest speed test technology to accurately measure your Starlink internet connection’s download speeds, upload speeds, latency, jitter, and packet loss.

The speed test works by having your browser establish connections with our global server network. Servers near you are automatically selected to give the most precise measurements. The speed test first downloads and uploads random data packets of gradually increasing size to eliminate caching and find maximum throughput speeds. Over 30 speed samples are taken during 15-30 second tests. Detailed network diagnostics monitor latency, consistency, and loss metrics. Results produce scores for comparison and advanced analysis.
