If you are looking for a way to measure the speed of the Internet, today we will tell you about this method and we will transfer to you a group of approved sites that we have personally tried over many years to make sure of their quality.
But before we talk about Internet speed measurement programs, let us first talk with you about Internet speed, how we measure it, and what units of measurement it are.
Internet Speed Measurement Units:
To measure the speed of the Internet globally, the whole world depends on one fixed standard, which is measuring the number of bits that are transferred per second to you from the server or the Internet.
If the basic unit for us is Bit, which is the unit on which we will measure the speed of the Internet, so the lowest internet speed that can be measured will be in Bps or a bit per second. Byte.
Each Byte unit is equal to 8bit, so when we say the Internet speed is equal to 1 kilobyte per second, what most specifies is a kilo Bit, meaning 1000 Bit, not a byte, which equals 8 bits as some believe.
So when you download at 100Kbps, you are downloading 100,000 bits per second, which means 12500 kilobytes per second.
There is always confusion between a megabit and a megabyte, and this confusion results from the confusion between the bit and the byte.
Megabit is symbolized by Mbps Equal 1 million bits Per second means 125 thousand bytes Per second.
As for the megabyte, it is symbolized by MBps Mean 1 million bytes Per second ie 8 million bits Per second, which is eight times the first speed.
Internet speed measurement method:
There are many ways to measure internet speed, some of which may be a little complicated and others easy and simple.
One of the simplest ways to monitor your internet speed is to download a program like Selfishnet and use it to monitor the network. You can read the full explanation that we provided for the program from here.
Another simple way is to monitor the download speed at which you download and your average download speed, which is the number that really matters to us. You will not care about the number that the Internet company calls your speed as much as you will care about the number that you will get.
You can also use internet speed measurement sites and there are two famous and approved sites mainly:
The most famous site in this field and includes many servers around the world and many of them are in the Arab region. It is a good opportunity for you to be able to measure your Internet speed and the speed of connection to the server.
As soon as you open the site, you will find the screen as you see it now, press Go and wait for the result that will appear in front of you as you see it now in this image.
One of the new sites that appeared recently and it is very simple and easy.All you have to do is open the site directly and it will automatically start testing the Internet speed and the result will appear to you as follows:
This was a simple overview of Internet speed measurement methods and the approved sites for measuring Internet speed Of course there are more complicated methods that we will talk about later.
