Internet connectivity is one of the lifelines on which the modern world survives today. Be it work, education, retail, healthcare, security, entertainment or manufacturing, good internet connectivity is required everywhere. But it is not possible to get speedy internet connectivity all the time, which can hamper our work sometimes. Thankfully, there are apps that enable users to test internet speeds on their smartphones so that they can move to a place with better internet connectivity, if required. So, here is how to check Internet speed - Google, Netflix Fast, Ookla Speedtest, SpeedTest Master and Meteor. Apps can be downloaded from Google Play Store and Apple App Store, while Google can be accessed online via browser.
Google Speed Test
If you do not want to download any internet speed testing apps, then Google Speed Test is the one for you. To use this, all you need to do is open the Chrome web browser and type ‘Google Speed Test' in the search bar. Google says that to run the test users will be connected to its Measurement Lab (M-Lab) and their IP address will be shared with them and processed by them. “M-Lab conducts the test and publicly publishes all test results to promote Internet research. Published information includes your IP address and test results, but doesn't include any other information about you as an Internet user,” the company said.
Netflix FAST is powered by Netflix. It enables users how fast their Internet connection is, whether on mobile or broadband, anywhere in the world. It has a streamlined design that is quick and easy to understand and ad-free to use. It is also available on App Store and Play Store.

SpeedTest Master can be used to test internet speed for 2G, 3G, 4G, 5G, DSL, and ADSL. It can also test internet speed for WiFi connections. It tests various features such as download speed, upload speed, ping latency and jitter. It can also diagnose a network automatically when there is a bad connection. It is also available on App Store and Play Store.
