Speed Test, a new service
Th Catalonia Neutral Internet Exchange Point (CATNIX) provides a new service, the speed test, which measures the quality of internet connection in an easy way for users, showing the upload and download speeds in megabits per second (Mbps) and the latency in milliseconds (ms).
The speed of any connection depends on the various components that make up the network and other factors external to the own connection, such as malware or spyware, firewall, antivirus...
One of the advantages of this speed test installed in CATNIX is its independence of the operator that provides the Internet connection. In addition, its location in the Neutral Points gives a minimal latency. The speed test also has a user friendly and fast interface.
The software, widely spread around the world, has been developed by Ookla, leader in broadband testing and web-based network diagnostic applications founded in the USA in 2006.
