It is now possible to know your internet data speeds after every usage, from time to time. All thanks to Vi™'s Vi™ app. It lets you capture every instance of your data speed wherever and whenever you want. In this article, we’ll explore how you can measure your data speeds from the Vi™ app.
A data speed test is the analysis of internet access performance metrics such as downloads (files received), uploads (files shared) and ping values (loading speeds in response to clicks).
Why is it important to know your data speeds?
Knowing your data speeds and tallying it with the speed levels offered in your data plans goes miles in knowing how much value for money you’re getting.
1. Make sure your mobile data is not being used
While your data speed test is on, please ensure that your mobile data is not being used by anyone else. See that the speed test tool is the only thing using your data connection with no other apps downloading or running in the background. Only if the above conditions are met, will you be able to track the exact data speeds. Failing to do so will show you low-speed numbers.
2. Measure data speed multiple times
A single test of your data speed won’t give you exact speed values. Data speeds should be measured preferably at different times during the day. For instance, if you measure your speed at mid-night, you can discover greater speeds, whereas if you test data speed in the evening, the speeds will be lower due to higher usage levels. Doing so will help you gauge on average speed values accurately.
