When your Internet connections have the sluggishness of a lame turtle, it can not only be frustrating, but a colossal waste of time if you do anything at all on the Internet. The problem is not only figuring out what’s causing the slowdown, but finding the time to do so.
We have solved that problem for you! Billshark is pleased to announce the launch of our speed test for your Internet connection, which you can do right here. This test, which takes approximately one minute, can help you pinpoint whether the problem lies with your router, your Internet Service Provider (ISP), your computer, or other devices connecting to the Internet.
The faster your Internet connection, the better your browser can support such features as Voice Over Internet Protocol (VoIP), live video streaming like YouTube and Netflix, and gaming.
Our speed test is specifically designed to test the Ping, Download and Upload speeds on all of your devices. When you’ve finished the test, we’ll let you know what types of connections your device is capable of handling, as well as where any sluggishness you’re experiencing originates.
The Ping is the time it takes to connect to a target host and receive a response. This is especially important in such time-critical activities as video gaming.
Download speed refers to the time it takes to receive data you request. This covers the majority of activities you perform on the Internet, such as accessing web pages and streaming videos.
Upload speed relates to data you wish to send, such as large files attached to emails. It’s also critical if you intend to video chat, because you’re sending your video feed to the other party.
With Billshark’s speed test, we’ll let you know whether you’re getting the speed promised by your ISP, and suggest possible solutions if the problem lies elsewhere.
With your speed problems solved, you’ll be able to enjoy the Internet the way you should, and also ensure you’re getting what you’ve paid for.
This is just one more of the many ways Billshark is looking out for you!
