How to run a Shaw speed test
To run a Shaw Speedtest:
Stand 10 feet and within line of sight to your modem with a device connected to your WiFi network's 5G band (BlueCurve Gateway customers won’t see their network split into two bands due to afeature called band steering), or connect a device directly to your modem with an Ethernet cable.
Wait to view your Download and Upload speeds. Note your Download and Upload speeds.
For the most accurate Speedtest results, try the following:
Use a wired connection or connect next to your modem. WiFi performance can be affected by distance and interference.
Disconnect all other devices. Other devices connected during the test may skew the result.
Use a newer device. Older devices may not support higher WiFi speeds.
Update your browser or try an alternative. Chrome, Firefox, Safari, and Edge may provide different results.
Remember that download speed is the rate that data travels from the Internet to a device in your home. Upload speed is the rate that data travels from a device in your home to the Internet. Learn more about Internet speeds.
