CIRA’s Internet Performance Test is one of the most advanced tests of Internet speed and quality available. It is also has the public interest at its core. The test nodes are located in Internet exchange points, rather than within an ISP’s architecture. This allows CIRA to measure the actual performance of an Internet connection in real network conditions, closely representing the Internet experience of Canadian users. To assess your Internet performance we are using a test called the Network Diagnostic Test (NDT) provided by M-Lab.
