Want to verify that you’re receiving your internet plan’s advertised speeds? Plume runs a speed test every 3 hours as long as your network is idle, in order to provide you with an up to date number. You can also choose to run a speed test anytime via the Plume App.
To run a speed test, click on the gateway Pod image on the home page of the App. Selecting this icon will bring you to an overview of your network speeds. Below this, you will find the option to “Check Speed Now”. This will trigger a speed test off of your gateway pod and provide you with the latest results.
Running a speed test may affect the performance of other connected devices. The speed test will not run if your network is offline or if the speed test servers are temporarily unresponsive. If this is the case, please check your connection and try running the test again at a later time.
Speed test limits
The built-in speed test is limited to around 200Mbps, regardless of the actual throughput your Pods are delivering. If you have and connection faster than this, please download the stand-alone OOKLA speed test App to run speed tests.
