Tool NetTestwhich was introduced last year by the Czech Telecommunications Authority (ČTÚ) as a website for advanced connection speed measurement, is already available in the form of a mobile application. At the moment only for Android, an iOS version is in the works. As in the case of the original website, it also offers a simple test in addition to regular measurements possibility to measure certified.
“It allows you to find out information about the current quality of mobile Internet access service. After starting the application, information about the current connection status is displayed – the type of Internet access used (Wi-Fi or mobile data), signal level, assigned IP address of the device, etc.) For measurement, it is possible to choose from three scenarios – regular measurement, repeated measurement and certified measurement. The start button will then start the selected scenario,” reads the description new Czech applications.
Together with the introduction of the application, ČTÚ also mentioned how the speed of a mobile connection should be measured correctly. “In a free environment, approximately at a height of 1.5 m, the device should not move. It goes without saying that Wi-Fi is turned off and GPS is turned on. It should be noted that the measurement consumes relatively high volume of data, depending on the speed of the mobile network approx. 200 MB or more. A measurement made in a place with insufficient mobile signal level is marked as erroneous in the measurement result. Such a measurement is recommended to be repeated in the given location in case there was only a fluctuation in the level at the measurement location,” he advises.
The developers warn that this is still the first official version of the application, and its functions may be limited or unavailable on some devices. The interesting thing is that the measurement results are after anonymization available as open data.
