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:

  1. Navigate to the Speed Test screen by tapping the Speed Test button on the main screen.
  2. Tap Start when prompted. You can tap Cancel to stop the test.
  3. 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.
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.
