What can I test?

There are two ways of testing your broadband speed: Via your ISP or via an Openserve Guest Account. The ISP Account tests the full end-to-end service speed, which includes a portion of the network that is beyond the control of Openserve. The Openserve Guest Account allows you to test speeds delivered across the Openserve access network, excluding the ISP’s network portion.
