About the broadband speed test
This internet speed test tool will show you upload and download speed, latency (ping) and jitter. Ping can be a particularly important measurement for gamers (a very good ping measurement is anywhere from 0-59 ms).
The server used for testing your broadband connection is located in Melbourne, Australia and is operated by Lightning Broadband.
The platform we’re using is from Ookla, the world’s most popular internet speed testing application provider.
The broadband speed test works directly via your browser without requiring a Flash plugin and is compatible with mobile devices. It will provide ping, download, and upload speeds within around 30 seconds of starting the test, so it’s very fast.
The application operates mainly over TCP testing with a HTTP fallback for maximum compatibility.
Please note : there are many different testing services around the Internet and they’ll often give different results based on a variety of factors – the method used, server location, network status and other conditions.
*Notes on some of the results: Latency is a measure of time delay from one point of a network to another. Jitter is the change in the amount of time it takes for a piece of data to move from a point in a network to another point; i.e the measure of variability in ping over time.
