We recommend you test your Internet service to make sure you are ready to work. We recommend using the free speedtest.net website or iOS/Android app. This provides an end-to-end test of all the factors affecting your device’s connection: your Internet provider, your home network setup, and the device you’re on.
When you run Speedtest, there is an option to choose a server to test against — we recommend picking Ithaca, NY (Clarity Connect), which approximates a connection to Ithaca College. For best results, you’ll want at a minimum:
- 15 megabit per second (Mb/s) or better download speed
- 5 megabit per second (Mb/s) or better upload speed
- A ‘ping time’ of less than 75 milliseconds
