Source Forge Speed Test

Welcome to the Source Forge Speed Test. This speed test is uniquely designed to test your current Internet connection speed for Latency/Ping, Jitter, Download Speed, Upload Speed, Buffer Bloat, and Packet Loss. Upon completion, you will be notified as to what types of services your connection is capable of handling, as well as additional reports about your connection.
To start go to the URL – https://sourceforge.net/speedtest/ and click the ‘Test Now’ button below to begin the test. This test utilizes Web Sockets for latency, jitter, and buffer bloat measurements. For best results close out other open tabs in your browser and ensure your computer is mostly idle.

Round Trip Time
Often referred to as Latency, Ping or RTT, Round Trip Time describes the amount of time it takes for a signal/packet to travel from a specific source to a specific destination. A number of factors can affect your round trip time, including the amount of traffic on your network, the physical distance between the source and destination, and the medium used for transmission (i.e. fiber, copper, wireless etc). However you mouse over the line graphs to view specific results.

Download Quality
Download speed measures how many 1’s and 0’s you can receive per second. Bufferbloat is the undesirable latency that comes from a router or other network equipment buffering to much data. It is a huge drag on Internet performance. Download consiestency is percentage mesurement of the minimum download speed vs your average speed. If through the test your download test was consistent then this number would be close to 100%. Hover your mouse over the line graph to view specific result.

Upload Quality
Upload speed measures how many 1’s and 0’s you can send per second. Bufferbloat is the undesirable latency that comes from a router or other network equipment buffering to much data. It is a huge drag on Internet performance. Upload consiestency is percentage mesurement of the maximum download speed vs your average speed. If through the test your upload test was consistent then this number would be close to 100%. Hover your mouse over the line graph to view specific result.

Internet Quality
How well is your internet connection performing overall? Internet Connection Quality is determined by Packet Loss, Jitter and Latency. MOS (mean opinion score) unifies this numbers in terms of expected VoIP call quality on a scale of 1 to 5, where 1 is poor and 5 is excellent. In the below given table, you can also see how ‘far’ away in terms of ping times you are from our point of presense and by extension from the points of presence of other service providers. Lower numbers are better.
