Take our speed test - first enter your full address

Why we need your address: we are mapping broadband capabilities down to individual "distribution areas" (100-200 premises). Without your full address (including street number) we cannot identify the distribution area to which your result belongs.

Then tell us a bit about your broadband connection

To take the speed test please submit your address and answer the questions below. This information and your results will be collected and will assist the Department of Communications and the arts to analyse broadband quality and may also be supplied in anonymous form (i.e. without your street address or other identifying information) to other government agencies for the purpose of analysing broadband quality.

a. What broadband access technology do you have?

b. Are you at home or at work?

c. What device are you running this test on?

d. How is your device connected to the internet?

Please answer all the questions.





What broadband access technology do you have?

If you aren't sure which broadband access technology you have, checking how your device is connected can help. For example, if you have a cable connection into your computer, it is likely that you are connected via ADSL or cable broadband (HFC).

If you are using a tablet, mobile or laptop with no cable attached it is likely you are connected via mobile, wireless or wi-fi broadband.

How is your device connected to the internet?

  • Network cable
  • Wi-fi router
  • Mobile or wireless broadband
  • Don't know


If you aren't sure how your device is connected to the modem, have a look at the images below.

Network cable

A network cable goes into the side of your computer and looks similar to this:

Wi-Fi router

A Wi-Fi gateway/router is connected by a cable to your telephone socket and connects wirelessly to your computer or laptop and looks similar to this:

Mobile broadband

Mobile broadband users can connect to the Internet using a wireless dongle that looks similar to this:

Some devices have built in mobile broadband (e.g. smartphones and some tablets). If you can connect wirelessly but you don’t have a Wi-Fi gateway/router then it is likely that you have built-in mobile broadband.

Thank you for completing the speed test


Your speed test results measure individual speeds at this point in time, whereas the ADSL quality rating measured median peak speeds for your local area. These are different measures and there are many factors that affect the results of your speed test.
