How To Test Your Internet Connection Speed & Line Quality

    Time and again we come across problem of getting low bandwidth quality during our Online Time. So we call on our ISP and ask them about the nature of the problem. We ask on them that we are user of 2MB connection but we can't browse. This is simply insane. ISP people give us some lame excuses to shut us up and we carry on with changing out ISP and Computer.

    There is still a way to check your internet connection quality before actually dialing on ISP. You get your tools first and then smack those ISP people with those tools, agreed!! So, there are two tools available online which are popular and which are authentic. First one is famously known as and the other one is a new one out of SpeedTest guys and thats is called actually checks your broadband speed that how much Download and Upload speed you are getting at that instance. Whereas actually checks on different matrics to calculate the Line Quality. PingTest is quite new with four categories to group the result. Here is classification from them.

  1. A

    An excellent result! Expect all Internet applications to work very well assuming you have sufficient bandwidth.

  2. B

    Very good! Your connection should work well for any Internet application. Some online games may not perform optimally.

  3. C

    Acceptable. Your VoIP quality will suffer some, and you will have a disadvantage in many online games. Most streaming media will be fine. You should try testing again to another server close to you.

  4. D

    Concerning. Most online applications will not perform well but should function in some capacity. Try testing to other servers to verify the result. You might need to contact your ISP for help.

  5. F

    Very poor. Real-time Internet application performance will suffer greatly on such a connection. Test to other servers to confirm the result, but definitely talk to your ISP about troubleshooting the issue.

  6. I don't know that why there is no 'E' category to group the line quality. Perhaps they would have thought that people would be thinking about E=Excellent :-D . To learn further about it, visit the learning page.

    Here is what I encountered when I tested my DSL.I got 1MB connection by the way. Its pretty much Ok thinking that I live in developing country ;-)
