The Catalunya Neutral Internet Exchange Point (CATNIX) offers a free speed test to check the quality of internet connection in an easy way for the users. The tool shows up the upload and download speeds in megabits per second (Mbps) and the latency in milliseconds (ms). Speed connection, though, will depend on factors external to the own connection (such as firewall, spyware, antivirus…), and other components that make up the network.
The Catalunya Neutral Internet Exchange Point (CATNIX), has different Domain Name System (DNS) replicas in order to guarantee the service in case of Distributed Denial-of-Service (DDoS) attacks. Moreover, in that way, it is possible to get a better time of response in DNS consults, as well as security goes up.
