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).

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.
