Android Speed Tester available again
Our Android speed tester expired a few months ago, and after plenty of pestering by users of the app we have released a new version that should work on the majority of Android devices.
Speed testing on android phones can be done via Flash where a web browser supports Flash, but Flash on most android devices is not fast enough to cope with even ADSL speeds. Thus the need for a dedicated application, that is not reliant on a devices browser and Flash implementation.
When the mobile speed tester was launched in 2010, it was envisaged as being used mainly on mobile phones, but the rise of ever more powerful android tablets and the low price point of the Google Nexus 7 means that many more people are watching high definition video streams on them, and knowing how stable their connection speed is very important, or whether it is worth even trying to watch video when using a Wi-Fi hotspot.
