The speed tests are something that have been in many years, usually on the form of a website.They help us check the bandwidth that reaches all our devices, and they go very well to check if our Wi-Fi works or if all the speed we have hired with a supplier comes.One of the most popular right now is fast.
However, now these websites are no longer the only ones we can use to check the quality of our network.Macos Monterey has its own speed test integrated in the system, a novelty that has gone unnoticed among the rest of the new functions.
You no longer need a browser to measure the speed of your Internet connection
This test has no graphical interface, so you have to use it through the terminal.You can open it in the Applications folder, within the Utilities Subcarpet.Once open you will only need to write "Networkquality" so that the test begins.
The test analyzes the speed of uploading and discharge of data (apparently uses one of its own servers to check the bandwidth), but also measures the amount of rise and discharge packages and the response time measured in transactions made byMinute on the local network.En ApplesferaExprime al máximo la batería de tu Mac con el modo de bajo consumo de macOS Monterey
Interestingly, the results that come out to me are quite lower than the total bandwidth of my connection, so perhaps Apple's servers do not endure 600 Mbps speed or the way it measures it cannot reach that quality.You can do all the tests you want and see what results they appear, but this small utility can be useful if for any reason we cannot or do not want to use the browser.
