To ensure that you are able to access Apricot optimally, it is recommended that you use a network with an internet service that provides at least 17 Mbps of download, and 15 Mbps of upload speed.

Checking your Internet speed

Step 1 – Navigate to a web search engine (Google, Bing, Yahoo!, etc.)

Step 2 – Search "internet speed test"

  • This search, depending on your browser and web search engine, will prompt you with an in-browser test that will provide you with live information of your internet speed. In these cases, simply click "Run Speed Test" or "Start", as shown below.

  • Some search engines may not prompt you with an in-browser test. In these cases, simply navigate to a website designed to test your Internet speed.

Upload speed: the rate that data is transferred from your computer to the Internet.
​Download speed: the rate at which data is transferred from the Internet to your computer.
​Mbps: stands for "megabits per second," a unit used to measure Internet speed.
