Network Speed Test
The Ubiquity gateway device includes an internal "speedtest" assessment. The assessment may help troubleshoot network performance issues and is particularly well-suited for isolating the ISP's performance from perceived issues with WiFi performance or individual client performance, as the assessment is run from the device adjacent to the ISP's Customer-Premises Equipment (CPE). Therefore, speed evaluations performed by the network gateway are more likely to represent the true performance capacity of the ISP at a given time, and illuminate issues that may exist within the NYCR network.
