The Verizon internet speed test works by testing how fast your device can upload and download information. This mimics your typical internet usage experience by accessing nearby servers and measuring the time it takes your device to respond.
The Federal Communications Commission standard for broadband internet is a download speed of at least 25 Mbps and upload speed of at least 3 Mbps. That may work for an individual user, but if your home has multiple devices or you do regular video calls, faster speeds and more bandwidth work best. Verizon Fios offers download speeds up to 940 Mbps and upload speeds up to 880 Mbps. Check to see what Verizon internet options are available in your area.
