Ever wondered if your internet provider might be ripping you off with a slow connection?
Now you can, for sure. Ookla, the company behind Speedtest.net and Speedtest apps for smartphones has now released dedicated apps for Windows 10 and macOS allowing users to directly test internet speeds from their systems without having to open a browser.
The apps feature a speedometer logo on the menu bar which runs a complete test with just one click. This could prove a godsend for IT teams and web developers who frequently need to check internet speed.
It is also useful for anyone wanting to ascertain if they are getting the internet speed they have paid for. The apps send a sample file from the server to a computer before returning it to establish upload and download speeds.
Ookla is used by internet providers, governments and businesses the world over. The aforementioned apps are the latest additions to its existing product line that already boasts the web-based Speedtest.net and dedicated iOS Android, Apple TV and Google Chrome apps. The broadband testing platform is expected to further expand its product lineup this year.
