What is Download speed?
The speed at which your device can receive data from the internet. It's calculated by dividing the total throughput of data in a given time frame by its duration. Therefore its unit is denoted by units of data over time. Most often, download speed is denoted in Megabits per second (Mbps or Mb/s), although other forms like Kilobits per second (Kbps or Kb/s) or Megabyte per second (MBps or MB/s) are also common.
What is Upload speed?
As opposed to download speed, upload speed characterizes the amount of data your device can send to the internet. It's calculated the same way and is therefore denoted in the same units.
What is a ping (latency)?
The ping or latency describes the delay of a signal due to the time it takes that signal to travel to its destination. In this context, it represents the time it takes a data package to complete its roundtrip over the network and the acknowledgment from the server that it was received. As a value of time, it is denoted as such, most often in Milliseconds (ms). It's a value for the responsiveness of your connection.
What is Jitter?
Jitter is when there is a time delay in the sending of these data packets over your network connection. This is often caused by network congestion, and sometimes route changes. Essentially, the longer data packets take to arrive, the more jitter can negatively impact the video and audio quality.
