PingTest.net (beta) lets you determine the quality of your broadband Internet connection, instead of just download and upload speeds.

“We give each test result a grade to help you interpret the overall quality. We also show the specific packet loss, ping and jitter values that make up your grade. When we are unable to measure one or more of them you will see a grade of N/A.” [pingtest.net]

Tests Made:

  • Packet Loss – percentage of data packets that failed to arrive.
  • Ping – how long it takes for a data packet to travel from client to server, and back.
  • Jitter – variance in successive ping measurements.

This is a nice web service for checking the caliber of our broadband connections. If you need to measure actual download/upload speeds, you can use SpeedTest.net.
