CIRA Internet Performance Test
Canada's advanced performance test for your connection to the Internet. We recommend using Chrome for this test.
Canadian communities can measure their success with a custom testing portal using maps and branding for their region to provide better context for end users.
CIRA’s Internet Performance Test is one of the most advanced tests of Internet speed and quality available. It is also has the public interest at its core. The test nodes are located in Internet exchange points, rather than within an ISP’s architecture. This allows CIRA to measure the actual performance of an Internet connection in real network conditions, closely representing the Internet experience of Canadian users. To assess your Internet performance we are using a test called the Network Diagnostic Test (NDT) provided by M-Lab.
