How to test a speed test? (accuracy contest)


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

Which speed tests is the most accurate? How to know it?


1) Propositions: 


To test download speed, use a download manager and monitor speed while downloading something big from a powerful server, like Microsoft.

To test upload speed, download a high leech torrent, wait until it finished and monitor your upload speed in torrent client.

To test latency, use a ping (from CMD in Windows), and monitor time values. Example: ping google.com -t


Note somewhere your average download/upload speeds, also your latency. They will serve as a reference values to compare speed test providers results.


2) Some speed test providers to test:



Speed Test by speedtestgroup.com

speedtest.net by Ookla



fast.com by Netflix


3) Results:


Generally, the closest one to your reference values is the best.

But in fact, it depends on the selected server test and how it's near to your location
