Speedtest4free Select Server

Solution

Speedtest4free Select Server

Speed test will show you the results of your ping, upload and download burst rates during your internet speed test from your location to the location of a test server you choose. TCP/IP degrades over distance so choose a server closest to you when performing the internet speed test. Test results may vary at different times of the day due to network traffic and bandwidth, and so on. To get reliable results, run the test minimum three (3) times at different times during the day and save the results to review and compare your previous made Speed Tests results.

An exception to choosing the nearest server is when you experience issues with an online game, Internet telephony or any other online application. If this is the case you will want to choose a server nearest to the game, VoIP or online application server. If you do so, Speedtest4free can be used to troubleshoot Internet connection issues. Per example if you are located in Germany but you are playing on a US game server you will want to choose a test server near the game server to find out if your ping increases and your speed decreases while contacting the game server.
