ever wondered how fast your mobile data speed really is?
With most of us spending 2.5 hours a day on our smartphones, the need for fast internet and a reliable mobile connection when we’re away from Wi-Fi has become a necessity.
Having a high download and upload speed is now more important than ever.
Whether you’re streaming movies on-the-go, uploading files to Dropbox or downloading new mobile apps off Google Play during your morning commute, you need to be able to connect and do things with a steady internet connection.
Mobile internet speeds have surpassed many broadband speeds, including ADSL and certain NBN connections.
How do speed tests work?
An internet speed test will allow you to check the performance of your mobile device and mobile internet connection.
This is testing just cellular data, and will determine whether or not your connection speeds are strong enough for some of the tougher tasks like streaming live sports in the highest resolution. You must disconnect from your internet service providers Wi-Fi to accurately test mobile speed.
They measure this by calculating the time it takes to send and receive data between your device and the speed-test server.
The two metrics calculated are called download and upload speed, these will determine if you have a fast internet connection.
