Click Run Test to start the Speed Test:
As the Speed Test runs, you’ll see the server locations sorted by Speed Index, Latency, and Download Speed:
Latency is the time it takes for a data packet from your device to reach the VPN server location, measured in milliseconds (ms). Server locations that are farther from your actual location will usually have higher latency. The lower the Latency, the better for your connection.
Download Speed is a measure of the rate of data transfer in kilobits per second (kbps). The higher the Download Speed, the better for your connection.
You can achieve different levels of streaming video quality with different Download Speeds. For example, Netflix’s speed recommendations are:
500 kbps: Minimum quality
1,500 kbps: Normal quality (less than 480p)
3,000 kbps: SD quality (480p or better)
5,000 kbps: HD quality (720p or better)
25,000 kbps: Ultra HD quality (1080p or better)
Speed Index combines the Latency and Download Speed into a score for a given server location. The higher the Speed Index, the better for your connection.
Finally, you can keep track of the fastest locations by marking them with a star in the last column.
