How to Test Internet Speed on Firestick or Android TV

If you want to test the Internet speed on Firestick, be aware of something: this is an easy process.

If you’re experiencing any problems and want to check the Internet speed, you need to specifically look at the download speed received on your device. There are many possibilities that for example, streaming media could be slow, and one thing you can first rule out is the Internet speed. If you have already tested internet speed on your Firestick and you are using a VPN, learn how to increase your VPN speed

Read our step-by-step tutorial with using the WiFi Tester app to learn how to test the Internet speed on Android TV or Firestick.

For the minimum optimal streaming experience, you only need roughly 7-10 Mbps. If you see that your Internet speed is already more than 20 Mbps, and you are still experiencing poor performance and quality, it maybe have nothing to do with your Internet speed, but rather the service you’re on itself.

Attention: Read before you continue

Governments and ISPs across the world monitor their users online activities. If found streaming or browsing content on your Fire TV Stick, mobile or PC, you could get into serious trouble. Currently, your IP is visible to everyone. We strongly recommend you to get a good VPN and hide your identity so that your online experience doesn’t take a bad turn.

We use IPVanish which is the fastest and most secure VPN in the industry. It is very easy to install on any device including Amazon Fire TV Stick. Also, it comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee. If you don’t like their service, you can always ask for a refund. IPVanish also runs a limited time offer where you can save 57% on your VPN and they allow you to use one account on unlimited devices. This is a flash sale that can expire at any time.

really do appreciate your newsletters and updates … my issue is after trying a vpn seems that it drops / slows my download very much .. i have gone to an ethernet (hardwire connection) to my firestick … therefore my question is about what % should I expect to drop in speed with a vpn installed that is acceptable?
thank you
