How slow your Network connection?
Does everything you do on the net from your phone take for ever? Have you checked how long the latency is?
In many Operators network the system is overloaded so everything goes slowly.
Here is a small tool to measure the network round trip time.
So that you can put numbers to your frustrations.
Ping is the normal tool, but is is difficult to find a suitable end point. This tools uses either DNS queries to measures the round trip time or HTTP request to google. For each request it measures the round trip time.
It is not scientific in any way but gives a quick picture of the network latency
You can email the log
Why this app?
When using Telia Sonera network I noticed that my Internet Radio stopped working, I though that it was my phones fault, there was no to see if the network was slow. So I wrote this app to measure the network latency.
Have opinions about the app? please mail me.
