The con­nec­tion test will deter­mine if there’s an exist­ing fire­wall on your net­work and the sta­bil­i­ty of your inter­net con­nec­tion. Click here, for more fire­wall information.

Download

After test­ing your connection’s down­load speed, the results will show. We sug­gest a min­i­mum of 5 – 10 Mbps for video playback.

Upload

Once your upload speed has been test­ed, the results will show. We sug­gest a min­i­mum of 2 – 5 Mbps to upload video to Hudl.

How to Use Results

If you’re get­ting a yel­low or red frown­ing face on your upload or down­load speeds, we sug­gest con­nect­ing to a dif­fer­ent net­work. If you’re using Wi-Fi, anoth­er solu­tion could be man­u­al­ly con­nect­ing to the inter­net using an eth­er­net cord.

If you’ve tried dif­fer­ent wire­less con­nec­tions and the eth­er­net option, the next step would be to con­tact your inter­net provider. You can pro­vide them the results from test­ing your connection.
