Some Essential Tips That You Should Know…

Ways To Check The Speeds Of Your Leased Line.

  • Step - 1

    In order for you to generate the most precise result, you should plug a laptop directly into the router that is given by the provider of the leased line. If possible, you should conduct the test before or after regular business hours when the internet connection is not being used by the employees.

  • Step - 2

    Use the above tool. This is the best leased line speed testing tool.

  • Step - 3

    Simply click on the ‘Start Test’ button above and wait for your results to appear.

What Are The Reasons Why Your Leased Line Speed Test Shows Lower Results Than The Expected Speed?

  • Office Users

    There may be other users inside the office who are using the same connection that you are using, same time same connection, which is hogging the bandwidth. Video conferencing streams, VoIP telephony calls, or back up related traffic may have been given much higher priority over the entire internet access than you are currently getting in testing your internet connection speed.

  • Network Interface Card

    Your computer’s network interface card may be too slow to enable you to test your connection accurately and effectively. 100Mbit/s is the common speed for the network interface cards. So, if you are testing a leased line with 200Mbit/s with the use of a computer with a 100Mbit/s network interface card, you will only get an output of about 100Mbit/s. In order to test speed higher than that, you’ll need a modern interface card, one that can transmit data at 1Gbit/s.

  • LAN Traffic

    Traffic on the LAN (Local Area Network) may be decreasing the output between your computer and the router of the leased line provider which could create sluggish speed.

  • Firewall

    The firewall may be causing the issue so simply connect a laptop directly into the router provided. Do a speed test now to get a more accurate reading.

  • Home / Remote Workers

    If your company is allowing the employees to be able to connect to your office network from their home, you should consider that some employees may be using the internet connection at the time that you are conducting the speed testing of your Leased Line. As some employees do, they may be downloading files and if so, they are using reasonable bandwidth on the LAN, even if you can’t actually see them inside the office.

  • Wireless

    Maybe you have connected wirelessly instead of connecting via an Ethernet cable. If so, get your Ethernet cable then re run your test via a wired connection. The will definitely be a noticeable difference using this option as bandwidth will be lost on a wireless connection.

  • Congestion

    The provider of the leased line might have sold too much internet transit or bandwidth, resulting in network congestion. Contact them immediately as this should never happen with a leased line. A leased line is a totally private uncontended line where there is zero contention unlike broadband services.

  • Upgrade

    If the bandwidth has been upgraded, it is highly possible that the ISP might have neglected or forgotten to adjust the throttling in your connection.

Are You Unsatisfied With Your Leased Line Speed? What Should You Do?

  • Firstly, follow the steps as described above, check the speeds directly from the router of the leased line provider. If the result from there is fine, the problem is inside the Local Area Network. A reliable IT support company can help you handle this issue if this is something you cannot resolve yourselves.

  • Try conducting the test more than once and at varied times.

  • Report the issue or problem to the provider.

  • If you are already out of contract, or will be soon, check out some options with the use of our leased line price checker at the top of this page.
