About Cox High Speed Internet Speed Check

Last Updated: Mon, 05 May 2014 > Related Articles

The Cox High Speed Internet Speed Check is a tool that you can run to determine your Internet connection speed.


The Cox High Speed Internet Speed Check tool provides customers’ access to a speed test that measures downloads, uploads, and the time it takes a home network to contact the Cox network. The tool is designed to test speeds when connected to the Cox network. Although the Speed Check tool will work off the Cox network, the results will not be indicative of Cox network speeds and thus these kinds of speed tests should be avoided.


Internet Speed Check is accessible through Internet Tools and is available to all Account Holders and Authorized Users. Refer to Accessing the Internet Speed Check Tool for more details.

Understanding Results
Users of the Internet Speed Check tool will obtain different results based on their tier of Cox High Speed Internet service, the type of Internet device or computer running the test, the network equipment such as a cable modem, router, or switch, and the type of connection, wired or wireless, that is used.

Because the Internet Speed Check tool can also be used outside the Cox network, using a 3G or HotSpot connection, the location of the test can also impact the results.

You can also view the Speeds and Data Plans Information to see your limits and allowances for your particular package.
