Learn how to check Your Internet Speed

Speedtest.net is a free broadband connection analysis website founded by Ookla Net Metrics in 2006. The company is based in Kalispell, Montana. Users can test their internet speed against hundreds of geographically dispersed servers around the world. At the end of each test, users are presented with their download (the speed of data from the server to your computer) and upload (the speed of sending data from your computer to the server) bandwidth speeds. The tests are performed completely within your web browser over HTTP (just like normal web browsing). Since its inception, over 3 billion speed tests have been completed. Speedtest.net hit the 3 billion mark on the 4th of January 2012 at approximately 8:35am GMT.


The site also offers detailed statistics based on users' test results. This data has been used by numerous publications in the analysis of internet speed around the world.


History

The owner and operator of Speedtest.net, Ookla Net Metrics, was established in 2006 by Mike Apgar (founder and previous CEO of Speakeasy) and a small team of other Speakeasy employees.


Technology

The technology behind Speedtest.net is identical to that of the Ookla Speed Test which is provided to a wide variety of companies and organizations on a licensed basis. Speedtest.net Mini is a free stripped-down version of the speed test technology used on Speedtest.net that users can run on their own web server. Together, over 20 million speed tests are generated each month using Ookla's software.

Pingtest.net

In 2009, a beta version of pingtest.net was launched. In 2010, the official and final version was released. It allows users to determine the quality of their broadband connection by measuring packet loss, ping and jitter.

Speed Wave

When speedtest.net was recently re-vamped, a new feature was added. This feature was called Speed Wave. Speed Wave allows users to create an account and begin a 'group' with friends who also have an account. Results can be compared and an average of all results is calculated. Badges are also awarded for achievements such as 'Highest Download Speed' and 'Lowest Latency'. The first Speed Wave in the UK was created by SpatmanNibos, who called it 'The Nibotters Speed Wave'.
