Sail Internet provides gigabit speeds to residential and business locations. Gigabit internet provides a top speed of 1000 Mbps for both uploads and downloads. This speed is affected by many factors before reaching your computer.
External factors can diminish some of the speed during everyday use. These factors include wiring, routers, and computer hardware. The websites you go to, the apps you use, and the streaming service you watch all affect the speed you see. This is due to their traffic and routing.
It is normal to see uploads and downloads of 700-900 Mbps on wired speed test results. Wireless speed tests add an additional factor that can yield inconsistent and inaccurate results. A wired connection is the best way to get the speeds closest to 1 Gbps.
Remember that not all devices are made equal. Computers, tablets, and routers all come in various shapes and sizes. The price and quality of these devices also vary. It is always recommended that you research the latest generation of technology from reputable and trusted companies.
We recommend downloading one of the free apps from Ookla to measure your speed with the most accuracy: https://www.speedtest.net/. Prior to running your test, select "Change Server" and choose the Sail Internet server to provide the best test results at your location.
