What are acceptable speed and latency values

Use http://speed.gdaas.com to measure your speed and latency to our datacenter (if possible use Chrome – do not use Internet Explorer).


After the test is complete you will see 4 values. Download, Upload, Latency and Jitter. Download and Upload are in Mbit/s (megabit). Latency and Jitter are in ms (milliseconds). Latency is the average ping speed. Jitter is the deviation of latency. When Jitter is unstable it will have a negative effect on your experience.

If your download and upload speed is > 10Mbit you have a decent enough speed.

If your latency < 60ms you have a strong latency, if it is between 60 and 150ms you have a weak latency, if it is > 150ms you have a poor latency.

If your jitter < 10ms and it is stable you have a decent jitter.
