    What is Pingtest.net?

    Use Pingtest.net to determine the quality of your broadband Internet connection. Streaming media, voice, video communications, and online gaming require more than just raw speed. Test your connection now to get your Pingtest.net rating and share the result with others!

    Understanding Your Line Quality
    • A

      An excellent result! Expect all Internet applications to work very well assuming you have sufficient bandwidth. Use Speedtest.net to see.
      MOS greater than 4.37 (Example - a ping below 50 ms with 0% packet loss)
    • B

      Very good! Your connection should work well for any Internet application. Some online games may not perform optimally.
      MOS between 4.28 and 4.37 (Example - a ping around 90 ms with 0% packet loss)
    • C

      Acceptable. Your VoIP quality will suffer some, and you will have a disadvantage in many online games. Most streaming media will be fine. You should try testing again to another server close to you.
      MOS between 4.00 and 4.27 (Example - a ping around 150 ms with 1% packet loss)
    • D

      Concerning. Most online applications will not perform well but should function in some capacity. Try testing to other servers to verify the result. You might need to contact your ISP for help.
      MOS between 2.50 and 3.99 (Example - a ping around 300 ms with 3% packet loss)
    • F

      Very poor. Real-time Internet application performance will suffer greatly on such a connection. Test to other servers to confirm the result, but definitely talk to your ISP about troubleshooting the issue.
      MOS lower than 2.50 (Example - a ping above 500 ms with 20% packet loss)

    About the Line Quality Components



    Packet Loss

    Much as it sounds, if you have anything less than complete success in transmitting and receiving "packets" of data then you are experiencing this problem with your Internet connection. It can mean much slower download and upload speeds, poor quality VoIP audio, pauses with streaming media and what seems like time warping in games -- your connection may even come to a total standstill! Packet loss is a metric where anything greater than 0% should cause concern.


    Ping

    This measurement tells how long it takes a "packet" of data to travel from your computer to a server on the Internet and back. Whenever you experience delayed responses in Internet applications - this would be due to a higher than desired ping. Similar to packet loss, lower is better when it comes to ping. A result below 100 ms should be expected from any decent broadband connection.


    Jitter

    Once you understand ping, jitter should also make sense. Jitter is merely the variance in measuring sucessive ping tests. Zero jitter means the results were exactly the same every time, and anything above zero is the amount by which they varied. Like the other quality measurements, a lower jitter value is better. And while some jitter should be expected over the Internet, having it be a small fraction of the ping result is ideal.

    Seems to me that Globe broadband is beating other providers! I have to go home, later tonight, to see how my Globe connection is doing!
