You guys would have heard of Speedtest.net and Pingtest. They both are owned by the same company. They are big, Reliable and Very accurate. They have servers all around the globe.
The best thing is that its a one stop and go solution to test your connection. For Bandwidth simply go to Speedtest.net and check. For Internet connection quality/Efficiency go to Pingtest.net
In pingtest. They will tell you your packet Loss, Jitter and latency. They Three important factors you need to know while playing online games etc.
Packet losses: if you have these then you your connection is in pretty bad shape. Get it fixed if you covet connection efficiency and realiability.
Jitter: This is hardly ignorable since jitter will always be on the net but it should be controlled . See whats your jitter like. Its basiacally the variation of your ping. Less jitter means your connection is realiable while high jitter means its not realiable at all.
latency/Ping : Less the ping better the signal in and out.
In the end pingtest also gives you a Rough Grade as to what is your connection like . Summarizes it. I have researched a lot on it and would like to help any fellow Pakgamers who are looking for better internet connectivity.
I have been following this since the days of Dial-up but was unable to play Warcraft III online competitively. I got to lv 18 but the ping didnt allow me to play better than that. The best pings i used to get was 450 on Europe server ( there were 4 servers of warcraft III not wow). After Adsl came ( multinet) i got that down to 350 on the same Eu server which was the best for us but still the game was unplayable. I did played a lot on Delta and enjoyed it a lot on lan. Then finally we got DSL , Wcall stepped into the scene with its Cable Broadband and i reached 220 -240 ms on warcrat III servers. This was when wow came and warcraft III was ending. Today I do play Stacraft II Online which is based on the new Battle net 2 servers which are very efficient and better then the battle net 1 servers.
Do try around 5 servers on pingtest.net and see what grades you get. Here is one from KL, Malaysia
