As broadband has become an almost certainty around the flobe, knowing what your true Internet speeds are is something of the past. But, knowing if you’re getting what you’re paying for is another. With Speedtest, you can test that out.
Speedtest by Ookla is a free Windows 10 app, and while the web version has been available for years, the revised Windows 10 app makes testing Internet speeds easy. A few clicks will tell you what your speed is, or isn’t.
What Speedtest Shows
With Speedtest, you get a number of different features built into the app. Users can test internet speeds, speed test, ping tests, packetloss, download speeds, and finally upload speeds.
These are all important, as many of us pay a certain amount to providers for a set speed, and often times don’t get it. This app will let you pick a spot, test it out, and see what you get.
Accurate Results Mean Something
I often run Speedtest to see what my connection times are, if I’m experiencing any packetlosses, or if I’m concerned about my connection. It gives a lot of features inside a free and well designed app.

Speedtest is free and on the Windows Store. It’s a handy app that many users should just have, run, and test
