About this app

The RTR-NetTest (in German: RTR-Netztest) measures, in addition to the speed of your current internet connection (upload, download, ping, signal strength), also a number of quality parameters (VoIP, unmodified content, web page, transparent connection, DNS, ports).

When starting the app several symbols provide information about your Internet connection: mobile data or WLAN connection, background data transmission, IP address and location. The start button initiates the RTR-NetTest. The speed test is followed by QoS tests. QoS stands for Quality of Service. Horizontal bars show the progress of the QoS tests. Once all tests are completed, the results as well as other detailed information can be viewed in the summary. The menu is located on the left and allows access to home, history, map, statistics, help, information and settings.

The app of the Austrian Regulatory Authority for Broadcasting and Telecommunications (RTR) includes:

- an option to retrieve individual test results and the possibility to synchronise the results of different devices and to display them in the browser ("history")
- a map view of all test results with filter options by measurement parameters, statistics, internet providers and devices ("map")
- a display of the five most recent tests, statistics on the results of the Internet providers and all used devices/browsers with filter options by quantile, measurement parameters and measurement period ("statistics")
- quality parameters (e.g. signal strength, connectivity on different ports, modifications during data transmission, transmission duration for a reference web page)
- a traffic light rating of the measuring result

Other features of the app:

- 2G (GSM), 3G (UMTS, HSPA), 4G (LTE) and 5G(NR) connections are supported; both for IPv4 and IPv6
- test results are available as open data - see https://www.netztest.at/en/Opendata
- the source code is available at https://github.com/rtr-nettest/open-rmbt

For further information about RTR’s app, detailed FAQs are available.

Best speed/network/diagnostic app available, just too bad it's based in Germany. Still works great and is in English but hopefully they get more worldwide CDN's or partner with CloudFlare. The amount of detailed information I didn't even know could be provided through a speed test just blows my mind and then to have the ability to compare with your past results or other worldwide results is just so useful. A designated bufferbloat section would be handy, though you can use the data to diagnose.

I've been depending upon Open Signal and Ookla Speed Test for many years and while they are both excellent, I HIGHLY recommend RTR-NetTest as a *necessary* tool for determining exactly the speed and conditions of the wireless signals you are receiving. I am of an analytical engineering mindset and was extremely impressed with this application. I only wish I had this for the past twenty years or so!

This App states one can check cellular signal strengths as well as Wifi. However, no where in the App could I find the option to test cellular signals!

Hello, the signal values are generally visible on the home screen of the app. Further details on the radio configuration are accessible via Options/Expert mode/Radio info. Please contact us under netztest@rtr.at for further questions.
