What Is the Purpose of Using the Brighthouse Speed Test?

The purpose of using the Brighthouse speed test is to determine the upload and download data transfer speeds of a user's computer and Internet provider. The test tells users if they are achieving the transfer speeds their Internet service provider advertises.

While the Brighthouse Internet speed test may be aimed at Brighthouse customers to test the company's Roadrunner Internet service, it can be used to test the upload and download speeds of any Internet service provider. The test is particularly useful for helping diagnose slow web page loading, or when downloading or uploading appears to take longer than it should.
