thinkbroadband are proud to announce the beta release of our Android mobile broadband speed tester!
Our mobile broadband speed tester will allow you to test your mobile or wireless broadband connection straight from your phone, view detailed results graphs and save your tests for later comparison.
While this application is in beta the only way to get it is to download it directly from this page, once it is out of beta you will be able to download it directly from the Android Market
So if you can't wait to get your hands on this cool and funky tester or would like to help us test it please follow the instructions below.
Please be aware this is a beta version of the application and there is likely to be the odd issue; if you find one let us know by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will fix it!
Before you are able to install the beta speed tester you must first enable installing non-Market applications, to do so follow the instructions below.
You will first have to enable the "Unknown sources" option on your phone to allow applications downloaded outside of the Android Market to be installed.
To do this simply follow the four steps below:
Once you have completed the above steps you simply need to download the application to your phone to install it. You can do this by either scanning the QR code below using a barcode scanner (search the Android Market for "barcode scanner"), entering the URL below into your browser directly to download the application or alternatively you can download to your SD card and use a application to install off your SD card.
Simply open your barcode scanning application, you can download one via the Android Market by searching for "barcode scanner" if you do not already have one. Scan QR code below which holds a URL which you need to open in your browser, then follow the instructions for "Installing via Browser" skipping the first step.
We have a dedicated forum section for discussion or help for mobile speed tests.
We are currently looking into a bug where upload speed spikes at the beginning of the test, this is known to us and we are looking into a fix.
