This speed test was created for the Google Fiber gigabit internet customers to test their internet speed. Fortunately, this speed test can be used by everyone.
The original Google Fiber speed test is a mainstream speed test. In other words, the results are in line with the advertised speed of your ISP.
Google Fiber recommends Ookla Speedtest
The speed test speed.googlefiber.net is much much better then the Ookla clone which is hosted at fiber.google.com/speedtest. The only positive thing about Ookla clones is that they are the gold standard, but probably more importantly, they are ISP independent speed tests.
The Google Fiber speed test used to have two URLs
Remarkably, there were two URLs that can be used to start the original Google Fiber speed test, namely
The speedtest variant nowadays redirects to https://fiber.google.com/speedtest/.
Note that the URL start with http, hence the connection between browser and server isn't secure. A secure connection doesn't really seem necessary for a speed test. However, Google Fiber's speed test is one of the few speed test that does not have a secure connection.
Reload sometimes required
Very occasionally, when starting a retest, the Google Fiber speed test indicates that it needs to be reloaded. This is most likely due to an unstable internet connection.
In the speed test overview you find all findings regarding Google Fiber.
