Most of us have checked out the network speed a time or two on our PC or Mac’s, but now you can use Speedtest.net on your iPhone or iPod Touch to discover your connectivity speed — I call it “my goto” website. Speedtest.net Mobile Speed Test allows you test your network connectivity speed in under 30 seconds. This FREE iPhone utility app works like a charm, with no glitches and in smoking fast time — of course, providing that you are not in a location where connectivity is nil. Once the app is opened, it has a big light blue pulsating button “begin test” that will get you going. Once a server is selected, you will get a ping test, download and upload speed test. The measurements for the tests can be changed in the settings, as can the server.
During our testing of this app, it seemed like it performed even faster (at times) than the website of the same name, which is probably just my imagination since I’m sure it’s working of the same server and engine. Either way, this app is great. There are plenty of times when I need to know my network speed for starting my hotspot, like when I want to ensure that I can upload a video or download a file fast. This app allows for both network and WiFi testing, but to get your network testing, be sure to turn your WiFi off first before testing, as the app default tests your WiFi network. Speedtest.net Mobile Speed Test is a really handy app, and while I am not a big fan of using iPhone apps on my iPad, this connectivity testing app would be a great addition to anyone’s iPad for this purpose.
