Pingtest.net is the new project of the popular bandwidth test site, SpeedTest.net. Unlike SpeedTest.net, PingTest is used to determine the “quality” of your Internet connection.
How Pingtest works?
According to Pingtest.net, the quality of your connection is determined by 3 factors:
- Packet loss: the success rate of data packets to reach its destination from its source. The less loss the better.
- Ping: the travel time of a data packet between source and destination. The faster the better.
- Jitter: the variance in measuring successive ping tests. The less the better.
Pingtest rank the your broadband test result with A to F, where A is the best quality broadband.
Benefit of quality broadband
The better broadband quality, the better performance when you are accessing online stream data such as online video, online music, online gaming.
