How to Check AT&T’s Internet Speed?

Our AT&T speed tool measures the download and upload speeds of your device as well as the responsiveness of your network, technically known as latency rate (Ping). Additionally, it calculates the variation in latency over time (Jitter). You can follow these simple steps to check the speed of your AT&T Internet. 

Disconnect all the devices from your network except for the computer or device you want to test your speed on.

If you are testing AT&T’s Internet speed over Wi-Fi:

  • Make sure your device is near the router without any obstructions, ideally 10 feet from the AT&T Wi-Fi gateway or All-Fi Hub.
  • Disable all the other interfering devices like wireless phones and radio devices, baby monitors, or Bluetooth devices.
  • Close all the apps on your device to get the right numbers.

How Much Internet Speed Do You Need?

The ideal internet speed depends on your online activities and the number of devices you will be connecting over the network. Sole internet users can easily get by with a low-speed tier. However, you may need a gigabit connection if you have a large family with demanding internet activities. Since every household and individual has different bandwidth requirements, we cannot guarantee that one internet speed will match everyone’s needs.

Most internet users opt for higher internet speeds, but realistically, you only need enough bandwidth to perform your daily online activities, without unnecessary interruptions or long load times. Therefore, it is better to determine your internet speed requirements before selecting an internet plan. While there are many helpful guidelines on the internet, you can refer to the chart below to identify the right AT&T internet plan for your home.

How to Fix Slow AT&T Internet Speed?

It is quite normal to receive internet speeds slower than the advertised rates. While it is easy to blame the internet provider, the most common cause of this problem is usually from your end. You could be facing slow AT&T internet speeds due to several factors, such as outdated equipment, full memory, network overloading, and so on. Therefore, follow these tips to speed up your connection before contacting AT&T’s customer service.

Check Your Device/Browser

Before rebooting your gateway or troubleshooting your network, make sure that you are not facing slow internet speed only on one device or web browser.

  • Restart your computer or device (this step usually solves most connection issues).
  • Make sure your device is free from viruses.
  • Install the latest version of antivirus software.
  • Check and disable your firewall to verify it is not slowing down your internet speed.


If you are facing slow internet speed while browsing the web, make sure to:

  • Clear your cache and cookies by pressing Ctrl + Shift + Delete keys.
  • Once you press these keys at once, you will see a menu with multiple checkboxes.
  • Select the options you wish to clear and then click on the ‘Clear Now’ or ‘Delete’ button.
  • Restart your browser.


Check Your AT&T Wi-Fi Gateway

If the first step doesn’t work, you should check your gateway.


You might be getting weak Wi-Fi signals due to the improper placement of your AT&T Wi-Fi gateway.

  • Place your gateway in a central location of your home.
  • It should be 3 feet away from the devices that produce interfering signals, like baby monitors, microwave ovens, and cordless phones.
  • Make sure that there are no obstructions, and don’t place the gateway in a cabinet or against the wall.



Make sure that the lights on your AT&T Wi-Fi gateway are green. If they aren’t, then your equipment might be malfunctioning. If the issue persists after restarting your gateway, contact AT&T’s customer service.

Restart Your Gateway

Rebooting your gateway can also solve a number of problems related to internet speed. Here is how you can restart your AT&T Wi-Fi gateway:

  • Switch off your Wi-Fi gateway for 15 seconds.
  • If your gateway has an internal battery backup, remove it for a few seconds.
  • Re-insert the battery and switch on the gateway.
  • Wait for the lights to stop blinking, and then check your internet connection.


Additional Tips

Try following these tips if you are still facing slow internet speed.

  • Check your Wi-Fi settings and make sure that the wireless adapter on your device is turned on.
  • Don’t overload your network by connecting numerous devices. Disconnect all the devices that are on standby, including computers, gaming gadgets, or phones.
  • Free up your device’s RAM by closing all the unused apps.
  • Check your browser’s settings and remove all the unnecessary filters.
