Question: How does Romanysoft SpeedTest work?
Answer: The SpeedTest runs the test entirely on your desktop. Simply ensure that your computer is connected to the internet either directly via a router with a network cable or via a WiFi network and press the START button on the SpeedTest’s interface. The Romanysoft SpeedTest then establishes a test and measures the actual speed of your broadband connection.
Question: What do the test results of Romanysoft SpeedTest mean?
Answer: The test results for your broadband or wireless network are broken down into four parts: Ping, Download, Upload and Connection. The ping refers to the response delay, which is particularly interesting to gamers. Here, lower values are preferable. The download value tells you how much data your WiFi or broadband connection can move from the World Wide Web to your computer. The upload value indicates how quickly you can transfer files from your computer, which is important to know for those who regularly use cloud services to store files. The connection shows whether the test engine is working properly, and the higher the value, the better.
