Internet Speed Test

The Internet Speed Test measures your connection speed to your Service Providers Server.  If your Shape system is sluggish, it may be necessary to check your internet speed.

Broadband speeds are measured in 'megabits per second', often shortened to Mb Mbits p/s or Mbps. Bits are tiny units of data, with a megabit representing a million of them. The higher the number of Mbps (megabits per second) you have, the speedier your online activity should be.

Go to Help on your main menu bar and click 'Check My Internet Speed to My Server'.

Follow the instructions to run the speed test.

What is a good download speed?

That's a relative question. It depends on your needs. A broadband speed nowadays is defined as 25mbps download and 3 mbps upload. A connection around these speeds should satisfy the needs of almost anyone nowadays, provided that it is a good quality connection with little or no interruptions.
