How does the speed checker work?
- email checking software

Our speed checker downloads a file from the server and measures how long your connection takes to download it. The size of the file will be different according to your line speed.
How accurate is the speed checker?
We have tried to build the speed checker as accurate as possible but there are several factors that can affect the test. The speed checker measures the speed at the time of the test so if your network is running slow at that time then speed checker will report a slow speed. This does not necessarily mean that your internet connection is slow at the other times.
How long it takes the speed checker to complete?
About 20 seconds.
