Speedtest.net is a free broadband connection analysis website founded by Ookla Net Metrics in 2006. Users can test their internet speed against hundreds of geographically dispersed servers around the world. At the end of each test, users are presented with their download (the speed of data from the server to your computer) and upload (the speed of sending data from your computer to the server) bandwidth speeds. The tests are performed completely within your web browser over HTTP (just like normal web browsing). Since its inception, well over 400 million speed tests have been conducted on Speedtest.net.

The site also offers detailed statistics based on users' test results. This data has been used by numerous publications in the analysis of internet speed around the world. [1][2][3]

HistoryEdit

The owner and operator of Speedtest.net, Ookla Net Metrics, was established in 2006 by Mike Apgar (founder and previous CEO of Speakeasy) and a small team of other Speakeasy employees.[4]

TechnologyEdit

The technology behind Speedtest.net is identical to that of the Ookla Speed Test which is provided to a wide variety of companies and organizations on a licensed basis.[5] Speedtest.net Mini is a free stripped-down version of the speed test technology used on Speedtest.net that users can run on their own web server. Together, over 20 million speed tests are generated each month using Ookla's software.[6]
