How to measure Jio internet speed
Android doesn’t have a built-in feature to measure internet speed on your phone, but there are a number of third-party apps available that can help you to monitor internet speed and data usage. These speed monitoring apps can also show real-time internet speed in the status bar and notification.
1. Measure Jio speed with SpeedTest app
With over 100 Million downloads, SpeedTest by Ookla is one of the most popular speed testing apps for Android. You can measure Jio internet speed (both download and upload speed) with this app. Here’s a step-by-step guide –
- First, install SpeedTest app from Google Play Store and open it.
- Now tap “Begin Test” button.
- Once the speed test is complete, you can see the download and upload speed results and share them with your friends.
- You can move to “Results” tab to compare with previous results.
How SpeedTest work?
SpeedTest sends a message to the nearest server available based on your device’s location. Upon receiving that message, the server will send a reply back. The time period in this process is measured in milliseconds and it is known as ping.
To measure the download speed, a chunk of data is downloaded from the server. SpeedTest calculates the real-time speed of the transfers, then adjusts the chunk size and buffer size to maximize the usage of network connection.
Similarly, in case of upload speed, a chunk of data is sent to the server and real-time speed of the transfers is measured. That’s how SpeedTest works.
