MyBroadband’s Speed Test app is ad-free, and allows users to test the download speed, upload speed, and latency of their Internet connection.
The app also provides a map of where users conduct their tests, and makes it possible to record and export the test results.
The MyBroadband Speed Test app has been installed by over 13,000 users, who conduct tens of thousands of tests each month.
A significant number of these tests were conducted over Wi-Fi networks during the past month, which provide an overview of the home and work Internet speeds users have access to.
Android vs iOS
The results show that iOS users enjoy higher average Wi-Fi speeds, with lower latency.
With iPhones generally more expensive than Android devices, it can be speculated that iPhone owners have faster – and more expensive – broadband connections at home, or faster connections at work, due to better company offerings or being in senior positions.
