I used to really value this app. Seemed the simplest most effective measure of speed especially when the ISP wifi always seems to be throttled. Two factors lowered a five star to three. Both according to my Norton App. One, it monitors your location which may drain the battery. Two - more damning- it sends location information to Edgecase Networks Asia Pacific Network in Tai Mo Shan, Hong Kong. That's just too creepy.
Maybe it is fake app and site, as ONE recent reviewer commented, and they are sponsored by ISP companies? TEST SERVERS, ETC, so look favourably. WE have awful Internet speeds on wired LAN, ETHER NET Fibre. MORE SUBSCRIBERS AND ISP CO DON'T KEEP UP WITH INFRARTCUTIRE, GROWING USE. MANY ISP COMPANIES THROTTLE SPEEDS. WE NEED REAL INTERNET FOR EVERYONE! NOT SLOW LANES!
I paid to remove ads, one week later and the ads are back and it wants me to pay again. Edit: I found the cause, it happens if you have two Gmail accounts, it picks the second account and decide you didn't pay, the only way to go around it is to delete your second Gmail account. This should be debugged and fixed asap!!
I used speedtest on many occasions but now it's extremely unreliable infact i believe it's fake. I am trying to stream a 480p video and it's getting stuck. Done the speedtest and it is showing 21mbps download speed. How is this possible if it's not fake?
In spite of showing 40+Mbps download speed and the equivalent download speed, I've tested it on multiple devices and it can't even handle a 360p vid on YouTube. Either it sucks at detecting the actual speed or you're getting paid by these corporations to enhance their results.. There was time I actually trusted this app.
Keeps using multiple servers, gives the wrong results. This is why EE recommends it, to hide behind lies. If my phone signal is over -100 dBm, I shouldn't get high transfer speeds. Come on, what's wrong with the truth?
We've added a few updates to make the Speedtest app even better. Have anything else you'd like to suggest? We'd love to hear from you.
If you rely on Speedtest to diagnose connectivity issues and keep your internet service provider and carriers honest, we'd be thrilled if you would leave us some feedback on Google Play. Thanks and happy testing!
