SpeedTest Beta

Speedtest is an online tool that allows you to test the speed of your internet connection.

With this, you can know if you are actually getting what was promised, as a quick and quality connection. The SpeedTest can automatically identify your carrier, your IP and also chooses a host near its location to start the test. Then, all you have to do is click on “Begin Test”.

As soon as you give the command, the download speed test starts, and you can see an animation of a speedometer running on your screen. At the end of the procedure, the SpeedTest is marked maximum hit when downloading files from the network (download) and, later, the maximum speed reached when sending files to servers in the cloud (upload).

Understand the differences

In common domestic connections, usually the download speed is up to 10 times greater than the upload. This ensures that you can browse and download files with speed, but do not allow sending files and pictures to the internet so quickly like that. Connections for domestic and corporate optical fiber generally have two equal speeds or with little difference.

Other interesting information that the SpeedTest offers to the user is the “Ping”, which is nothing more than the latency of your connection between your terminal and the host.

There is the possibility to share the result in social networks or generate links to send to someone, as for the attendant of your carrier insists that everything is normal as is not.

SpeedTest Beta

It is worth noting that the SpeedTest now works in HTML5, and not in Flash. This language of Adobe is on borrowed time, and more and more sites abandon the feature, which is a good thing when it comes to security.

Speedtest is a solid option for those who need to test the speed of your internet connection. The platform is the most used in the world and therefore becomes very reliable. Still, she can do measurements based on local hosts, which does not affect the time of latency or speed measurement.

In our tests, the SpeedTest always worked very quickly and steadily. We were able to perform the test several times, and platform performance was always identical, even when the speed of our connection somewhere.

The redesigned

The new interface the look more beautiful and modern SpeedTest. Leave the tacky animations in Adobe Flash and enter the minimalism and versatility of HTML5. Everything was more communicative visually, and you don’t need to know English to understand what appears on the screen.

What can harm a little user experience is the amount of ads around the test framework, which can be a little distracting. Still, these elements never get confused with the interface of the tool, not forcing any user to click by mistake into something.

Therefore, we can say that it’s worth doing a test with the SpeedTest and check how’s your connection. If it is not the way you hire, it pays to call your carrier and ask for explanations.
