Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs):
Q1: How does Hargray Speed Test work?
A1: Our speed test tool measures your internet connection speed by sending and receiving data packets between your device and our server. It calculates the time it takes to complete the data transfer, providing you with accurate results for your download and upload speeds.
Q2: How often should I perform a speed test?
A2: It’s a good idea to perform a speed test periodically to ensure that you’re receiving the speed you’re paying for. We recommend testing your speed at different times of the day and on different days to get a comprehensive understanding of your connection’s performance.
Q3: Why are my results different each time I run the test?
A3: Your results may vary due to several factors, such as network congestion, other devices connected to the same network, and the device you’re using to run the test. To get more consistent results, make sure to close any applications using the internet and use a wired connection if possible.
Q4: What should I do if my internet speed is consistently slower than advertised?
A4: If you’re experiencing consistently slower speeds than promised, try troubleshooting by resetting your modem/router, checking for any potential network issues, and ensuring that your devices are up-to-date. If the problem persists, contact Hargray customer support for further assistance.

- Ensure that your modem and router are placed in an open area with minimal obstructions.
