Now, we see the era where many things are connected through the internet. We already see some good gadgets such as smartphone, tablets and few other weird gadgets such as smart fridge and smart rice cooker. I am not really that sure those gadgets are useful to use since not all of people need it. But once again, we cannot just stop people to show their creativity on creating of new things. They might create us a good technology that would change everything.
Those great things are only impossible to do if we have a good internet connection. Nowadays each company is giving their service which is different in price and feature. The cheaper one usually has slower connection while we are getting it faster on higher one. Luckily, there are still some services that still give us great service in also great price.
You probably want to check on how fast your internet connection. That is what we are going to talk about here. We are going to see further how we could do it easily. To make it easier for you to understand, let’s jump into the article.
What This Does
Most people usually see how fast the connection is gone through downloading files or by browsing or doing any other things. Download speed actually cannot be used as measure because it depends on lot of things on this case. It could be because many users are hopping into the server or it might because of internet infrastructure itself that becomes the reason. Even the smaller change here make so much different on the result.
Instead, we should do the test further in such a better way. The ideal method is by finding the nearest server of us and tries to download and upload to it. This method is probably considered as the best one because the test is consistent. We will see how fast it is as soon as they finish measuring. For this case, we might need some proper tools to do it.
How To Get The Best Result?
To make sure we are getting the most comprehend result, first we should check few important things here. You cannot just run the tool without thinking about anything. Here, there are two important things to check before.
First, ensure you are not using of the connection for streaming or downloading any file. Downloading and streaming is such a high usage of data activities, so prevent yourself to do it for now. Just pause what you do right now and then continue it for later.
The second, measuring our connection for once is not enough. Measuring it single time will not give you the best result here. I recommend you on making multiple tests in multiple times during the day. Do the test in the morning, and then do the same test at noon or even midnight. Midnight is probably the best time to check it because at this time, the server is not too busy.
Let’s Make Our Test
The measurement process is done easily and quick. The best method here is by using of Speedtest.net site. This service is considered as the best because the result is always accurate. Do it and your computer or smartphone by just pressing the button.
On the computer, we could do the process directly without needed to get any software, but in smartphone I see now that want to make us installing their application that is available on Play Store and App Store. The size for application is not that big, so you are not going to find any problem. As the installing process is done, connect to mobile data to check the cellular network or connect to the WIFI for checking its connection. Remember that both of them are different.
Using this kind of service will download and upload some amounts of data. If you are in limited data amount, then just prepare with it. The amount of data used here is not that much and only around of 20 MB per test. But, it will be worst when you do it multiple times. Take this into your account.
Those are necessary information about it. Further measurement is needed for getting proper information for it. Now, you are able to know which one provider or company that giving better service. Well, everything is back on you on deciding it. I just hope the information is useful for you. At last, thank you for reading the article and see you again next time.
