The Time Warner Cable (TWC) speed test is a free test used to measure Internet speeds between a computer and the Internet. The test measures download and upload speeds.

The Internet speed test is available for use on a computer or mobile device. It measures the speed of the Internet connection in Mbps, or megabits per second. The results of the test are displayed in easy-to-understand terms and the TWC website allows customers to compare the speed test results with all of its Internet plans. This helps customers get the speed they need, without overspending on fast speeds they will never use.
