How to check your satellite broadband speeds! - HySpeed Broadband

How to check your Broadband speeds the correct way!

There are many speed test services available on the Internet. However, less than 1% of Internet access is performed using satellite networks and as a consequence the vast majority of speed test services are tuned for terrestrial wired services such as ADSL. They will give a result but it will simply be incorrect.
For an accurate speed test, we will ask you to download from our server to eliminate all other possible causes that are outside Avanti's control.

Testing your broadband connection correctly is simple; it can be monitored at any time of the day, by going onto From here you will be able to test your current speeds. For best results we suggest that you test the service at 3 different times of day to get the most accurate result.
If you are having trouble accessing the site, please e-mail we will send off for an official speed test and ensure you system is running correctly.

If you want a faster speed please remember that upgrading your monthly package increases download speeds and data usage, to enquire about upgrading please call 0203 582 1366 or e-mail 

Kind Regards,
