WOW! Speed Test FAQ

The WOW! Speed test results and averages on this page a drawn from thousands of IP-verified WOW! customers. The speed test database used on BroadbandNow is M-Labs, the same speed test tool used to test Internet connections via Google search.

WOW! Speed averages tend to be lower than what you’ll experience as an actual customer. This is because speed tests are frequently run by customers who are having issues with their connection. Often, the issue is with their WiFi router or a similar home networking issue. These “dud” tests get rolled into the averages, which is why we frequently cite 90th percentile averages elsewhere on BroadbandNow.

WOW! Download Speeds vs WOW! Upload Speeds

When you see WOW! Internet plans advertised on their site, they are categorized by download speed. However, this isn’t the only speed that matters — all Internet connections have to do uploads as well. WOW! Download speeds are generally several times faster than their upload speeds. This is common with cable providers, since most users need a lot of download speed for streaming Netflix and videos, but only use upload bandwidth occasionally for activities like online gaming and Skype.

WOW! Latency Test Results

WOW! Has high latency in general, which makes it a good choice for gamers in particular. “Latency” is the measure of how long it takes for a request to a website to come back to your home network — you can think of it as a measurement of “lag.” Laggy Internet connections can still be fast. Latency measurements in the 50–100ms range are normal for WOW!, although they may go as low as 30ms in some areas. For WOW! Customers who mostly care about Internet performance for gaming, 50ms or less is desirable. For the rest of us, anything under 100ms will be more than sufficient to feel “instant.”

WOW! Cable Network Speeds

WOW! is a cable Internet provider, meaning they use cable TV wires to deliver your Internet and TV service. Cable is one of the fastest ways to get Internet currently, and is much faster than DSL, dial-up, Satellite, and most fixed wireless Internet providers. Fiber, however, is faster than cable, and delivers better upload bandwidth.
