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 15,000 users, who conduct tens of thousands of tests each month.
A number of these tests are conducted over Wi-Fi connections, which provides 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 and iPads generally more expensive than Android devices, it can be speculated that iPhone owners have faster – and more expensive – broadband connections at home.
It can also be assumed that iPhone users typically have more senior positions and work at companies which pay better, which in turn translates into better work broadband connections.
The table below provides an overview of the Wi-Fi speed test results.
|Android vs iOS|
|Average download speed over Wi-Fi||14.986Mbps||9.324Mbps|
|Average upload speed over Wi-Fi||9.916Mbps||5.432Mbps|
|Average latency over Wi-Fi||61ms||89ms|
