Our Story

Founded in 2002, Bandwidth Place began as a simple, no-frills internet speed test tool that provided web users with an accurate measure of their connection performance. Since our inception, our commitment to providing keen insight and full transparency into the constantly-evolving internet industry has remained unchanged.
