Test your internet connection
Speed test for the cloud
Note: this speed test is indicative only. To optimally test your speed to Onlime servers, we recommend you use the Onlime app on Win/Mac, set to 6 simultaneous transfers and transfer at least 20 files in min. 50 MB each. Remember to close demanding apps in the background. Please contact us if you have any questions 😊
How to get an accurate result:
Your upload speed has a direct impact on your backup
How to take the speed test
You'll get the most accurate results if you:
- Performs the measurement directly on your fibre box
- Turn off your wireless network
- Closes all running programs
- Uses approved cables (Cat. 5 or 6)
- Turn off your built-in firewall and antivirus software (remember to turn it back on after the test)
- Using a newer computer

Upload speed is important
When backing up to the cloud, one of the most important things is that you have a fast upload speed. Many providers focus on highlighting and offering a higher download speed than upload speed, as this is what most customers need most.
But now that services like online backup have become available, upload speeds are starting to matter.
Many providers offer connections called something like 10/2 or 20/5.
This means you get 20 Mbps download speed, but only 5 Mbps upload speed.
While it doesn't sound like the worst connection, it can get a lot better. Because if you upload large or many files, as you usually do when backing up online, it will take longer if your upload speed is slow.
How do I get the fastest upload speed?
You get the best upload speed with a fibre connection.
Unfortunately, not everyone can get fibre, as it is not widespread throughout the country and is generally offered by electricity companies. In many instances they offer to install it for free in housing associations if there is enough connection for it. This means that a small housing association, for example, cannot get fibre installed for free if the area as a whole is not interested in it.
The difference between the old-fashioned copper connections (ADSL) and fibre networks is that fibre networks can deliver much faster speeds and can guarantee that you get the speed they advertise. With a copper connection, the promise is that you can get up to, say, 20Mbit/s, where on the fibre network you will get a real 20Mbit/s connection.
Internet speed through the phone jack
By copper connections can get speeds of up to 300/50 Mbit/s. However, this is not the case for everyone, as it depends on how close you are to the exchange. The closer you are, the higher the speed you can get compared to what you pay for.
The main disadvantage of copper connections is that the speed you pay for, e.g. 20/5, is an approximate speed, which means you can't be sure of getting the promised speed. Typically it will be lower, both in upload and download speed, than what you actually pay for.
A LITTLE FASTER
Internet speed signal through cable TV
If you receive your internet through cable TV, you can get speeds of up to 500/60 Mbps. That's impressive too, of course, but that kind of connection, such as through YouSee, is usually quite expensive per month.
Internet speed signal through fibre
If you have a fibre network, you can get speeds of 1000/1000 Mbps at a reasonable price and even up to 5000/5000 Mbps.
The latter connection is expensive, but it also means that you can backup to the cloud in a short time.
