Speed Connection Connection Tester is a speed testing tool for Windows PCs.

Are you getting the speed you pay for from your internet provider? Like a surprisingly high number of people, you probably aren't. Unfortunately, most service providers don't provide you with the right tools you need to measure your speed. Even when they do provide tools, they're more than a little biased when it comes to reporting. As such, you need a good third-party tool to make sure you know exactly how fast your internet connection is. This is where SpeedConnect Connection Tester comes in, offering you a chance to figure out exactly how fast your connection is, as opposed to how fast it is supposed to be.

Using this program doesn't require much advance knowledge. Start it up, and you can connect it to almost any server. With a few button presses you'll get a readout of how quickly your data is moving. You won't get anything terribly detailed, of course, but you'll get the information you need to figure out if you're overpaying. The problem comes for those who know they have a slower connection and are trying to troubleshoot exactly why. This is a program that gives you a raw number but doesn't give you any information behind that number.

If you're trying to figure out your connection speed, this is a great program for you. It's not any kind of revelation, and it's not going to help you with complex tasks, but it can fit your needs. Always make sure you get the connection speeds you pay for, and always make sure you have the means to test any claims your Internet service provider makes. With this program, you'll have the ability to find out the truth.
