The Federal Communications Commission launched a Speed Test app at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. The app is also available for Android devices and it allows users to test the performance and the speed of their WiFi connectivity and cellular networks. Users have the ability to get stats on upload and download speed, latency and packet losses.
The Speed Test app is a part of the FCC's Measuring Broadband America program. The program aims at improving the broadband service in the United States. Users who use the app are helping the FCC crowdsource data on mobile network performance levels.
We all want fast and efficient smartphones so this is a great way to know whether you are doing everything possible in order to keep your phone running as quickly and as smoothly as possible.
