 +======Speed Test======
 +The Speed Test measures the latency, packet loss, download speed, and upload speed of a connection. When a Speed Test is initiated, Open Mobile will ping test servers and choose the one with the fastest response. Open Mobile will then download a test file from that server and upload a test file to that server. After the test is complete, Open Mobile will display the results and indicate the connection quality.

 +**To test the speed of a connection:**
 +  -Navigate to the Speed Test screen by tapping the **Speed Test** button on the main screen.
 +  -Tap **Start** when prompted. You can tap **Cancel** to stop the test.
 +  -When the test is finished, your connection’s latency will be displayed in milliseconds and its download and upload speed will be displayed in megabits or kilobits per second, while a percentage will show how many packets of data were lost. A speedometer will indicate whether your connection is suitable for (from slowest to fastest): Email, Web, Voice, or Video.
 +<note important>Connection quality will vary based on a number of factors (such as the number of users at a location, the signal strength, or provider network congestion). iPass cannot always guarantee the speed of available networks.</note>
