Speedtest.net

LTE uploads and latency results should be more stable

We know the Speedtest.net app is hugely popular for testing (and bragging alike) network connections on your phone and tablet, and the latest update will improve the reliability of those results. Version 3.1.1 brings a fix for a common upload test failure when running the app over LTE, and improves the accuracy of latency testing by telling the test server to not compress the response back to the phone.

A single test from a single app still shouldn't be trusted as a perfect representation of your network speeds, but any increase in accuracy of one-time on-demand tests is appreciated. Grab the latest version from the Play Store at the link above.

It's Sprint

Move the decimal over 2 or 3 places and you have Sprint speeds ;)

Still... even via wifi - who is able to upload like that??? 139.63 Mbps!! I can understand the 105Mbps down, but 139.63 UP is just unheard of!

Its called 21st century fiber optic lines.

beware to those on finite data plans. these speedtest apps burn up a lot of data with each test.

Just be thankful you don't live in Australia. I pay for adsl+2, which is our fastest residential broadband and get 7 down and 2 up. That's considered good here.

Where I live in the U.K. it's 2MB down and 30KB up. It's fucking barbaric for 2014.

I've got DSL here in the U.S.

10 down and about 0.8 up.

For $20 more a month I can get 20 down, but upload stays the same.

No data cap, though. They even say that in their TOS.

my speeds are fine (50/20)... But DAT LATENCY!!!!!!!! 4MS?

I would destroy Battlefield with that connection.
