Troubleshoot home Wi-Fi with RealSpeed

Wi-Fi is the most popular method of connecting internet enabled devices in the home. New Wi-Fi standards promise extra speed at the expense of less coverage and penetration through solid walls. It’s not widely understood that the available speed at your router isn’t the same as the available speed on your device. We have created this test to show the difference.

Poor home Wi-Fi is the cause of over 50% of all complaints to ISP care teams. RealSpeed can help you understand how your Wi-Fi performance varies around the home and troubleshoot common problems without having to contact your ISP. 

Launch RealSpeed

Test on any device

Tests can be initiated from any device connected to your home network. The app will flag any results that have been speed-limited by the device. For example, the speed limit of an iPad mini 2nd Gen is 150 Mbps.

Test room by room

See how Wi-Fi performance changes around your home. Perfect for setting up Wi-Fi in a new home, or optimising the positioning of your router and Wi-Fi boosters within the home for maximum coverage and performance.
