Scrutinize, detect, verify
Speedtest determines how fast and smooth you connect to your ISP server. If you want to know exactly what you’re using for the price you pay, Ookla’s Speedtest will give you what you need.
Comprehensive and accurate
Find out if you’re really getting the internet speed you pay for from your ISP. Examine all aspects of your connection with Speedtest by Ookla.
Speedtest has an easy-access shortcut and is free to use. Open your browser and with one click you’d find the status of your connection. Your internet speed can vary depending on the browser you use. Having too many online activities when you run these tests may also result in disconnection.
Test your speed on several different browsers to get a more precise idea of how fast your connection is. Speedtest saves the result of each scan, providing more accuracy when compared against historical stats. You can also track results on multiple browsers to determine which one processes the fastest.
Unlike other apps like LAN Speed Test or OST, Speedtest displays your connection consistency in real time. You get to see how fast your device connects to your ISP server and how long it can stay at that speed.
You can find out your ping rate, download, and upload speeds using Speedtest. These stats determine your streaming quality and gaming experience. These numbers help identify all the factors that affect your connection.
The speed test doesn’t show you exactly what these factors are, so users would need to look into it by themselves based on historical data.
Where can you run this program?
You can run Speedtest by Ookla on macOS and OS X.
Is there a better alternative?
No. This software allows for the most exhaustive insight to your internet connection. You can try similar software such as LAN Speed Test or OST which offer the same functions minus real-time latency and not as fast.
Ookla’s Speedtest is super convenient and easy to use. The app provides accurate and reliable data and compares them to other networks in the world. This helps you determine where you stand with the service you currently have.
