To most accurately measure your speed:

  • Make sure other devices in your home are not using your Internet connection during the test.
  • Connect your laptop or computer directly to your home’s router with an ethernet cable instead of using Wi-Fi.
  • Power off any streaming devices including smart TVs, video sticks, Alexa, etc.
  • Disconnect all phones, laptops, and other Wi-Fi devices from the network.
  • Click ‘Start’ to perform several tests spread over several minutes time.
If self-testing does not deliver expected results, Hargray can perform a controlled speed test that will provide an accurate result of the available network speed and can perform appropriate troubleshooting as needed. Please call 877.427.4729 for assistance.

Important Notes:
  • Hargray does not guarantee the advertised speed to be available at all times as network conditions and traffic vary. Hargray provides a “best effort” service as referenced in the Terms and Conditions.
  • Advertised speeds can only be obtained on an idle network connection with no other devices connected, and only by using a direct ethernet cable connection into the Hargray equipment.
  • Many laptops and mobile devices have inherent speed limitations. If you have a high bandwidth connection such as 1000 Mbps download, you may need Hargray to test your speed using special speed testing devices.
