We contacted one of the members of the Speedwhat team and he said, "Speedwhat, basically, tells what your internet speed in your area is. With its sophisticated systems, it tells you how much time it will take you to download something on your connection".
He continued, " Our service has a lot of uses. You can compare if you are getting the same speed as someone else you may know is getting. Or maybe your ISP is not giving you the speed that you are paying for. It is a great tool to stay updated with the existing systems. Why should your internet be slower than someone else'. What we aim to do with Speedwhat, is to educate people by helping them stay updated on what speeds they are being given as opposed to what they were promised."
It is a good tool with certain utility. Check out Speedwhat here – http://www.speedwhat.com and check out what your internet speed is.
