What is the Internet?
The Internet is an extensive network of computers connected through wired or wireless connections. It is a network of computers that transfer data between each other for the purpose of information sharing and resource sharing, communication, and data sharing. Hundreds of thousands of computers can be connected to a single computer at one time through the internet and can send or receive data between each other. An example includes websites that get millions of visitors and those websites run on server computers that are permanently connected to the internet 24/7 and can transfer GB's of bandwidth per second.
What is the Internet Speed Test?
An Internet speed test is a measurement of a data transfer rate per second of your internet connection. This data transfer rate is calculated by first finding the nearest internet-connected server from your computer, and then transferring the MBs of data between both computers. The speed at which this file transfers between both computers is the actual internet connection speed and this speed varies due to various factors involved in data transfer.
What is Windstream Speed Test Service?
Windstream speed test is performed by performing various speed tests using your Windstream internet connection. This happens when our speed test service sends a chunk of bytes to Windstream's nearest server. Firstly, we perform a download test in which chunks of bytes are downloaded from a remote server to your computer and the transfer rate of downloading that file is measured, this is called the Download speed test. Next, is the Windstream upload speed test which is performed by uploading random chunks of bytes from your computer to the nearest server and the transfer rate is checked accordingly. When both of the tests are performed, the results are calculated and shown.
What Factors affect internet speed?
Various factors affect the internet speed of your internet connection, some of those are latency, jitter, download speed, upload speed, weather, distance from a connected computer, and more. The latency is the response time of a server that is the time in which the first byte of data is received on each request. Download speed is the rate at which a file downloads to your computer, Upload speed is the rate at which a file uploads to any server from your computer. The weather conditions affect the internet in a way that if your internet connection is wireless, it will be affected by extreme weather because the signals get weaker due to storms and rains or too much heat. The wired internet connection also sometimes gets affected by the weather in those circumstances where the cable is damaged and or the loose connectors between your nearest DB and your home/office.

What should I do before taking the Windstream speed test?
Before taking a speed test, please check if your internet connection is not being used by someone else in your local network, or close any programs which may be using your internet connection bandwidth, because if your internet is being used by other programs then the speed test will not give desired results and will show slow connection speed due to slow transfer of data between the server and your computer.
