How speed is measured

See Learn about your speed.

  • The speed data listed on the BBFL is generally what you can expect to receive.
  • Cox's download and upload speeds are based on internal tests and reflect the wired speeds that our network typically delivers to your home modem, router, or gateway device.
  • Actual speeds are impacted by many factors and may vary.
Latency and how it is measured
  • See Cox Internet Service Disclosures.
  • Latency is the delay between action and response. For example, the time between pressing a command on your controller during an online game and the character responding to that game.
  • Used mostly in online gaming sessions, high latency or lag can result in glitches, low frame rates and overall poor performance.
  • Latency is measured in milliseconds (ms) and is generally affected by the distance between the router and the server.
  • The latency displayed on the Broadband Facts Label is typical, though it may vary.
  • See https://www.cox.com/residential/internet/guides/gaming-performance/ping-testing.html.
Consistency of speeds displayed on the Broadband Facts LabelCox allocates more bandwidth than advertised to provide the best experience for our customers, even during times when there may be network congestion.
Not receiving typical speeds on mobile devicesMobile data speeds can vary based on many factors including device models, distance from the cell tower, number of customers using the network at any point in time, physical environment, and other potential interference such as radio frequency interference.
Definition of download and upload speed
  • Download speed measures how fast information can transfer to you over the internet. Download speed impacts how long it takes to download large files, update games or show pages with lots of photos.
  • Upload speed measures how fast outgoing information can transfer from you over the internet. For example, how fast you can upload files or how long it takes to add attachments to emails is a result of upload speed.
Impacts to speed
  • Selected internet plan
  • Equipment - Router, modem, gateway device, laptop, cell phone
  • Age of the equipment
  • Physical distance from the router or gateway device if using Wi-Fi.
  • Wired vs. wireless connection.
  • Walls or solid objects that may block your signal.
  • The number of devices connected at once.
  • Number of people in your location that use the same internet connection simultaneously
  • Interference from other devices such as microwaves, cordless phones, or baby monitors.
