Speedtest.net Mobile Speed Test - App Review

 

This is a neat little App for keeping your Internet Service Provider 'honest'. It's surprising how some ISPs promise lightning fast speeds (alright, it's actually bandwidth) and then do not deliver. This is even more important when ISPs have tired offerings, where the amount you pay varies with the 'speed' you sign up for. Bring on the refunds!


Now for the ACIDS test:

Aesthetics
After finding the nearest server is found a speedometer displays the Ping, Download, and Upload speeds. These are than available as values in a dated listing. You can therefore also compare the most recent result with previous recordings, thereby testing that there isn't a steady (or not) decline in your access speed. It is also interesting to compare values at locations other than your usual one, thus finding out the true speeds of connections.

Cost
It's free; can't complain.

Indispensability
If you believe everything your ISP tells you, I guess it's useless.

Dependability
The App has always worked... which is more than can be said by the quality of the connexion.

Security
None of your personal data is transferred, so there should be no issues.

ACIDS Test Rating:

Try it... you might be in for a surprise
