Network Speed Monitoring

Understand if you’re getting the Internet performance & bandwidth you’re paying for.

We always hear people talk about speed when referring to network performance—how fast are applications running or how quickly can you upload or download files. That’s because speed is one of the easiest network metrics to understand.

Network Speed is the speed at which data is transferred between two devices on a network and is usually measured in bits per second (bps). It is usually a result of latency, jitter, packet loss, throughput, and theoretical bandwidth.

If your network's bandwidth and performance are optimal, you should reach the speed you expect. SpeedTests validate the overall performance of your network, ensuring it operates efficiently and delivers the speed you're paying for. But, if speed issues arise, it's time to take action.

To accurately identify and address these issues, Obkio's Network and Speed Monitoring Tool monitors both network performance and speed. This comprehensive approach allows you to pinpoint the root cause of any problems affecting your network's speed and performance.

Measure Internet & Network Speed With Scheduled SpeedTests

Continuously monitor network speed with real-time and historical insights.

Speedtest tools only tell you how fast your network is performing when you run that speedtest, which isn’t super helpful when measuring performance or quality. Obkio’s comprehensive network performance and network speed monitoring tool allows you to run SpeedTests and correlate the data with other network performance metrics to dive deeper.

Use Obkio’s scheduled speedtests at predefined intervals to measure speed hourly, every 2, 3, and so on. Each scheduled test randomly selects a minute within the hour to distribute speedtests evenly.

The speed represents the available throughput, which is what's left unused and accessible when you conduct a speedtest. For example, if your network has an available bandwidth of 100 Mbps but your current throughput is 50 Mbps, the speedtest measures how much of the remaining 50 Mbps is being utilized.

What Are Your Actual Network Speed Measurements?

Analyze the data to identify if your network speed is lower than expected.

To understand Network speed, let's think of a water flowing through pipes. Bandwidth is the size of the pipe, determining how much water can flow at once. Throughput is the actual amount of water that flows through the pipe in a given time. The speed is the flow rate of the water through the pipe

The same thing happens in a network. Obkio’s SpeedTests will give you the exact speed measurement of data flowing between two points in your network by taking into consideration your theoretical capacity (bandwidth), and your available capacity (throughput).

It's important to know your expected theoretical bandwidth and then compare it with your actual speed to gauge if you're meeting expectations. If you're falling short of your expected speed, it's crucial to identify the reasons behind it - and this is where the diagnosis starts.

Troubleshoot & Diagnose Network Speed Issues Slowing You Down

Pinpoint when the network speed issues began.

So your network is slower than expected - what's next? Start troubleshooting with Obkio's Network Speed Monitoring software to pinpoint when speed issues occurred. Analyze speedtest results, real-time monitoring dashboards, historical data, and alerts to pinpoint moments when your actual network speed fell short of expectations.

When you conduct a speedtest, you're only measuring speed between two specific points, from point A to point B. However, to understand your network's true performance, Obkio analyzes metrics like throughput, packet loss, and latency on our Network Response Time Graph to give you visibility of your overall network performance and highlight when network issues affecting your network speed occurred.

Uncover Where Network Speed Issues Are Happening

Pinpoint if network speed issues are happening in your network or your ISP’s network.

If your speedtest results record lower speeds than expected, it's crucial to pinpoint where the issue is coming from. When troubleshooting network speed issues, it's essential to determine whether the problem lies within your network or your Internet Service Provider's (ISP) network.

Use Obkio to detect any congestion or resource-related issues within your network. If you’re network isn't the culprit, use Obkio’s Visual Traceroute Tool to trace the network path and identify potential bottlenecks further along the route, potentially within your ISP's network infrastructure.

Find the Causes of Network Speed Issues

Obkio’s Network Speed Monitoring software uncovers the source of the problem.

Now that you've discovered that your network speed isn't meeting your expectations, the next crucial step is to determine the reason behind it. Obkio's Network and Speed Monitoring tool is your solution for uncovering the root cause, allowing you to troubleshoot internally or seek answers from your ISP. This way, you'll have the evidence needed to troubleshoot low network speed due to:

Network Congestion

Network Congestion

Network congestion occurs when there is a high volume of data traffic on the network, leading to slowdowns and reduced speed for all users sharing the network.



Latency refers to the delay in data transmission between devices. High latency can slow down network speed as it takes longer for data packets to travel back and forth.

Packet Loss

Packet Loss

Packet loss occurs when data packets fail to reach their destination. This loss of data can lead to retransmissions, causing delays and reducing overall network speed.

Inadequate Bandwidth

Inadequate Bandwidth

If your ISP doesn't provide sufficient bandwidth, it can result in slow network speeds, especially when multiple devices are using the network simultaneously.

Network Device Issues

Network Device Issues

Problems with network devices such as routers, switches, or cables can also contribute to low network speed by causing interruptions or inefficiencies in data transmission.
