NetOK takes virtually zero battery, which makes it ideal to have running at all times, giving you great feedback on your current Internet quality. If you haven't already, you will quickly realize that signal-strength and Internet experience does NOT go hand in hand -- at all.
NetOK is highly configurable, but comes with good default values for those who don't care.
NetOK has too many use cases to even bother giving examples. Please write your own use cases in the reviews!
PLEASE NOTE that sadly not all phones are supported! There are so many Android phones on the market, and I cannot possibly test them all. If NetOK tells you that the device is not supported, please, instead of giving me one star, contact me (email below) with device information.

Keywords: ping, internet, latency, quality
- Upload Data : just dummy file to be full of 0x31.
- Download Data : downloaded files are not to be stored. (No Filesystem Operation)
- This is to get the exact time taking only for upload or download(FTP-DATA Session).
Does everything you do on the net from your phone take for ever? Have you checked how long the latency is?
In many Operators network the system is overloaded so everything goes slowly.
Here is a small tool to measure the network round trip time.
So that you can put numbers to your frustrations.
Ping is the normal tool, but is is difficult to find a suitable end point. This tools uses either DNS queries to measures the round trip time or HTTP request to google. For each request it measures the round trip time.
It is not scientific in any way but gives a quick picture of the network latency

Why this app?
When using Telia Sonera network I noticed that my Internet Radio stopped working, I though that it was my phones fault, there was no to see if the network was slow. So I wrote this app to measure the network latency.
Have opinions about the app? please mail me.
Additional features of Speed Test Light application:
• history of results with detailed information about the tests,
• IP address display,
• ability to filter and sort your results according to various criteria,
• two standard units (Mbps and kbps),
• the ability to manually adjust the number of threads and the duration of the download/upload/ping test,
• system clipboard and social networks handling (easy to publish the results on Facebook, Twitter or Google+),
• low demand on system resources.
The VideoTest feature loads a 30 second video randomly and analyzes the download performance of the video while it is being watched. This feature allows you to try videos of different resolutions to test your network with different video types.
The NetworkTest feature allows you to compare you network latencies with other users in your region (state/country).
- Video performance measurements with feedback about performance.
- Performs Network Latency (Round Trip Times) Tests on your WiFi/Cellular Network.
- Stores the history for time based analysis.
- Benchmarks your performance using data from your region.
- Secure Network Connection.
- Utilizes your bandwidth efficiently.
More from developer
With multi-server support across the global, including North America, Asia, Europe and Australia, 3 nearest servers are automatically selected and help you accurately measure the network performance, including latency, download speed and upload speed. The results are more accurate than any other tests using a single-threaded TCP test.

Apps with existing profiles will show up in green, whereas those not yet analyzed will show up in gray. We are in the process of analyzing all of the available free apps on the market, but we will give priority to applications requested by users of AppProfiles, so please check back in a few hours if you don't see an application you're interested in. (Note that we do not provide information about paid apps or apps not downloaded through the Android Market.)
You also have the option to indicate what app behaviors you don't like by toggling the face next to each action, or indicate if you are uncomfortable with an app's behavior, then pressing "Submit" to upload your feedback. We encourage you to do so as it helps make the app more effective as well as helping us with our research.
We are researchers at the University of Michigan and have no commercial interests in this app, and use the Internet permission only to deliver summaries to your phone and allow you to submit feedback. We track individual feedback submissions via a large, random number generated on your phone (which is not derived from any personally identifiable information in any way). You can opt out of this by unchecking the relevant checkbox on the feedback page, or alternately by not submitting feedback.
