Virtual Inspection Software - VuSpex Ookla Internet Speed Test

Great! I did a speed test, but what do these numbers mean?

  • Higher is better.
  • We recommend (at least) 10-15 Mbps download and 3 Mbps upload speeds, for a better video call.
  • Minimum requirements: at least 0.540 Mbps download and upload speeds.

What can I do to improve my internet connection?

Outdoor, rural, or cellular only areas:

  • Consider using a mobile hotspot if possible.
  • Restarting your phone sometimes helps.
  • Talk to your Inspector or Agency about offline inspections.

At home:

  • Unplug your modem and router, wait a minute or two and plug them back in.
  • Restart your computer or phone.
  • Call your Internet provider and talk to them about increasing your Internet speed
  • Upgrade your Internet Wi-Fi modem and router hardware, if yours is outdated.
  • Discuss adding Wi-Fi extenders to expand the range of your Wi-Fi, especially if your inspection is far away from your Wi-Fi source
  • Update your computer and phone if they are more than 6 or so years old.
