Primus Speed Test

Overview

As with other speedtest resources, the Primus Speed Test measures several elements of your connection. It is important to understand that as far as your computer is concerned, the speedtest is just another internet resource, so your computer will not automatically stop everything else to prioritize the speedtest. You must do this by closing any and all other applications that could be using the internet and ensuring that there aren't any other active computers on your home network (if applicable).

For the test to be valid, please close all programs on your computer except for this browser window and clear your temporary internet files (cache).
