Do you ever find yourself frustrated with your internet connection, but not sure what’s causing the issue? One of the simplest and most effective ways to troubleshoot a slow internet connection is to test your internet speed.
Internet speed refers to how quickly data can be transferred from one point on a network or the Internet to another. A faster internet connection means quicker loading times for websites and streaming services like Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, etc.
It’s important to know how fast your internet connection is in order to properly troubleshoot any issues that may arise as well as ensure you are getting all the benefits of your chosen service plan. This article will explain how you can easily test your WiFi and Broadband internet speed.
What to Consider Before Conducting BSNL WiFi and Broadband Internet Speed Test?
The first step in testing your internet speed at home is setting up the test. You will need some basic equipment such as an Ethernet cable or Wi-Fi router, a computer or smartphone, and access to the Internet.
1. Gather The Proper Equipment
To set up the test, you will need an Ethernet cable and/or Wi-Fi router depending on how you are connecting to your network (an Ethernet cable is typically more reliable).
If using Wi-Fi, make sure that it is on and connected properly before running the test.
2. Connect To Your Network
Once you have gathered all the necessary equipment and made sure everything is connected properly, it’s time to connect to your network and begin running the test.
Depending on whether you are using an Ethernet cable or Wi-Fi router, follow their respective instructions for connecting properly.
How to Run the BSNL Speed Test For Wifi and Broadband?
Now that everything is set up, it’s time to run the actual speed test. There are plenty of free websites and platforms out there that offer reliable results when testing your connection speeds such as our website BSNL Speed Test.
1. Find A Reliable Website Or Platform
First off, do some research into which website or platform offers accurate results for testing your connection speeds.
Once you’ve decided on a site/platform, visit it in your browser (or download its app if available) and get ready for testing. You can check our article on How to Use BSNL IOS or Android App to Test Your WiFi Speed.
2. Take The Speed Test & Understand The Results
The procedure for taking a speed test should be straightforward: simply click ‘start’ when prompted and wait until it shows your results. Usually, this takes around 30 seconds or so depending on how fast/slow your connection is.
Afterward, it will show your download/upload speeds as well as other detailed information about your connection health such as latency (delay), packet loss percentage, etc., which can help pinpoint any problems with connectivity if present.

How to Troubleshoot Low Wifi and Broadband Speed?
If after taking multiple tests over different days/times you find yourself with low speeds still then there could be several factors causing this issue.
I’ve discussed some of the major causes below.
1. Check Your Connection Type And Plan
Firstly double check that you are indeed connected through either an Ethernet cable or Wi-Fi router (if possible try both). It’s also important to check whether or not you have chosen a suitable plan/package from your service provider.
If it’s due to packaging, this could be leading to slower-than-expected speeds during peak times due to congestion on their networks, etc.
2. Disconnect Devices That Are Using Your Bandwidth
Next, try disconnecting any devices that may be using some of your bandwidth such as phones/tablets streaming music/movies, etc., so that only necessary devices connected remain active during testing periods.
Doing so should result in improved speeds overall during peak times if applicable due to less strain being put onto available resources from these devices etc.
3. Reboot the Router/Modem
Lastly, try rebooting both the modem & router by unplugging them from power sources for at least 10-15 seconds before plugging them back in again.
This should reset their settings thus potentially improving the overall performance of both devices if needed for better connectivity experiences in general moving forward etc.
In conclusion, testing your BSNL WiFi and broadband internet speed is an easy yet effective way of troubleshooting slow connections while helping us understand what type of plan we require based on our current usage levels, etc.
