With the current high speeds of the Internet, landline, and mobile, you might be intrigued to know your internet speed. Everything is already flying – the numbers are useless to know. However, sometimes it is essential to measure the exact speed of your internet connection – before contacting the provider in case of problems, for example.
There are several ways to know the speed of the Internet and let’s talk about them.
There are many resources on the Internet that allow you to measure the speed of connection quite accurately. Unlike “artisanal” methods or manual checks, online services always use the equipment of large network providers as reference points, which guarantees a high bandwidth rate and reduces the effect of channel congestion. You’ll only see your limitations (local network, network card, router, your network with provider) and not the limitations of the servers you’re addressing.
Plus, they show all the necessary parameters at once: ping, download speed, recoil speed, server/provider, to which the request is made. And online services do not depend on the platform used. You can work at least in macOS, even on Linux distribution.
As an example, let’s give some of the most famous.
