This is how you check your internet speed in Germany!

In Germany, telecommunication companies are obliged to state the connection speed. In their offers, you can usually find the highest speed, which is for example written like this: “bis zu 100Mbits/second” (up to 100 megabits per second). There are two ways to check the quality of a connection: via the website of the telecommunications company from which you have taken out the Internet access or via another website in the network that offers this service.

German telecommunication providers are obliged to inform you about the possibility of checking the speed of your connection already at the conclusion of the internet contract. In addition, they have to remind you of this option after the activation of your internet package, e.g. by email or text message. The message has to contain a link to a page, where you can check your internet speed.

What information must the speed test contain?

The result of the internet speed test must contain at least the following information:

Download rate – which is the speed when downloading data from the Internet
Upload rate – speed of uploading data to the Internet server
Laufzeit – the speed at which data is transmitted over the internet

Where can I test the internet speed in Germany?

The results of the speed test on the provider’s website must be available to the customer for at least 6 months. In addition, the Federal Network Agency (Bundesnetzagentur) offers the possibility to check the speed of your internet connection on its website:
