How to choose a speed test server

Nebula Speedtest measures the speed between your device and the test server. When Nebula Speed test starts, it automatically selects the nearest test server with the fastest ping time. A server may have ping time much faster than a server near your location so that it will choose it. Make sure that the Location service is enabled on your device settings so that it can detect nearby servers.

Choosing a speed test server

For the full range of your internet speed, we suggest testing for servers in various locations. Many streaming services and websites can host their content on servers worldwide. To change the server, tap the server name on the test screen to open the Alternate Server screen.

Choosing sponsored Servers

Although, some servers are sponsored by ISPs and the mobile carriers. Testing those servers does not tell you how fast your connection will be if you sign up for their services. All speeds measure the speed of your current web service.

Below are some comparisons, which will help you determine which is best for you.

  1. Fiber-Optic vs Cable Internet

Copper cable or fiber cable? Know which internet connection broadband is right for you? The two most famous and popular options – fibre-optic and cable-internet – give you a lot to choose from. In this article, we will compare fiber optics and copper (cable) internet, advantages and disadvantages of fibre optics and cable internet.

  1. Fiber Optic Vs Cable Internet: Basics

Compared to fiber vs cable, fiber-optic cable is much more advanced. It uses small, flexible glass mirrors to transmit information.

Cable-Internet uses copper cable (Coax) and transmits data via electricity. This is what we have seen on cable television for decades.

  1. Fiber Optic vs Cable Internet: Availability

Fiber-optic cable is the backbone of our all telecommunications and the cable industries. Fiber-optic cable is easily in markets.

Yes, it looks expensive, but it may not be so bad depending on your location. Many fiber-optic Internet services providers are interested in expanding their users’ network with fiber-optic cables.

Alternatively, cable networks are available everywhere. Mostly the business and offices are already having internet-cable connection to their buildings. By calling your local cable company – you can opt for a fast and reliable cable internet connection for your business just like you do at home.

  1. Fiber Optical vs Coaxial Cable: The Speed

The fiber-optic cable is fast and flat. Fiber offers up to 10 Gbps internet speed, along with the symmetrical upload and the download bandwidth.

The cable-Internet is slow – at some times, it provides broadband speeds, which meet small to medium businesses’ needs. For example, Cable-Internet shows a significant speed improvement than the DSL connection.

The speed of standard cable-internet varies by the provider and has download speeds of 10 Mbps to 1 Gbps and the speed of upload up to 3 Mbps to 50 Mbps.

  1. Fiber-optic vs Cox: Reliability

Compared to Cox Vs Fiber, fiber-optic is usually considered as more reliable, and it offers many advantages based on the stability and performance.

With fiber, you can enjoy a unique line – where you can share the link with other businesses with the cable. In addition, the dedicated line protects you from delays (delays in processing the data). With the cable-internet, speeds will decrease at high volume times.

  1. Copper Cable vs Fiber Optic Cable: Price

Generally, a fiber-optic connection costs more than the cable internet connection. The price difference is narrowing, so check all the available options. In case you have more than one location in your business, a fiber-optic internet connection at home or central office – along with cable-internet connections elsewhere – is often the best solution to balance the speed and efficiency cheaply.
