The first step for using broadband speed checker is to get a good speed checker. You will be able top get them usually within the browser window and for that there is no need to get anything downloaded. After selecting a good broadband speed checker, you have to get all other applications closed or else the speed of internet will be affected.
You should be looking for a clean test for the line so that you can get the accurate measurement when there is no interference. Therefore, only the browser that has the internet speed checker should be open and everything else should be shut down. While choosing a speed checker it has to be kept in mind that you go for a checker that would be able to show you what you are getting at the moment and what you could receive. The peak time for doing the check would be between 6 to 9 pm.
