Next at Microsoft - Test your internet connection speed with these apps from Microsoft Research

Microsoft Research recently released an excellent new app for testing and tracking the speed of your internet connections. Network Speed Test is available for Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8, and the free app’s design is as simple and easy to understand as its name. Fire up the app and hit “Start” and a speedometer-like gauge lights up, testing your upload speed, download speed and network delay. It also serves up handy information like which activities your current connection can handle, and saves a history of your tests so you can compare speeds over time.

- Network Speed Test

Network Speed Test can provide you detailed information about the upload and download speeds of your internet connections. The App also maintains a history of the internet connections you’ve tested for easy comparison. When you test a network connection using the App, certain characteristics of your device and the network connection will be sent to Microsoft to help improve our understanding of network quality and availability. If you consent, we may also collect information about your location at the time of the test. The data we collect is not associated with you, and will not be used to identify or contact you or for other purposes like targeted marketing.
