Pingtest Grades Your Internet Connection Quality

Pingtest is a free service that evaluates the quality and reliability of your internet connection.

This is different from the numerous free services that tell you your speed. Pingtest gives your conncection a grade, calculating for ping time, packet loss, and the difference between your ping times or “jitter.”

If you have a crappy connection, maybe you can use this test to negotiate a discount with your ISP, or get inspired to try switching to a different one.
