Fast and Simple Network Test

How irritating is it when you expect a solid internet connection, but you can’t seem to get anywhere quickly either at home or on the road.

Figuring out why your connection is less than useful can get a bit complicated as you don’t know if it’s your device or something along the connections of the network you are on.

When it’s your computer and your own network, you have a little more control over tracking down the problem, but not so much when you are using someone else’s connection.

To help narrow down where the problem may be, checkout this cool add-on called ‘Connectivity Diagnostics’ for the Chrome browser that will diagnose your connection in real-time.

Adding this tool to your browser allows you to thoroughly test your connection and shows you any potential issues that could impact performance.

If you’re not tech savvy, you may be looking at a bunch of info that looks like Greek to you, but it’s useful info when you reach out for help from someone technical.
