Fine tool for verifying bandwidth 5/5
I've used this app for several years and it gives consistent good feedback.
free and does the job 4/5
askes for my location but doesn't use our server instead it uses the another city server.
Thanks for the App 5/5
I have trusted Ookla Speedtest for years. There is no equal to Ookla's accuracy. It's just GOOD!
We need the same options as on mobile devices, light mode, dark mode, also whyyyyy can we only see it in Mbps and not MB/s??
Great App for holding ISPs accountable 4/5
I love using this app to check my internet speed. Having recently switched from AT&T to Comcast, I wanted to make sure I was getting my money's worth. At first, I didn't see an improvement and in some cases worst performance even though I was paying $50 more per month. Then I figured out that it was how my VPN to my workplace was throttling things and have since come up with a workaround. I would suggest it would be helpful to have the tool show where the "bottlenecks" might be in performance so the layperson can learn more quickly why their actual performance isn't as expected. The other improvement I would suggest would be to making it easier to find an "optimal" server. Some times that can be delayed with no explanation. With those two improvements, I would give this app a "5-star" rating
The only speedtest app if you have fast Internet 5/5
By EMT Brian
Now that I've upgraded to gigabit fiber, I needed to be able to see how fast my WiFi connection to the router is. The web interface isn't fast enough, so I downloaded this and it works just right.
Easy, accurate and configurable. If I could request one thing it would be more granular reports (ping info, precise location of servers on a map etc) but I'm grasping for straws for an app renowned for its simplicity. Five stars.
I just love this app 5/5
What I most love is that it gives me an immediate sense of the ecosystem I'm working in, on any given site. It's just a very well designed, one purpose app that does the one thing it does well and stylishly.
Excellent on the desktop 5/5
I've been using the iPhone app for quite some time. I'm pleased that there is also a Mac version. I use this to disagnose problems with my home network and to keep my ISP honest.
Works like charm , only trouble I have right now is to download version 1.11 . It’s just waiting and waiting .
Unreliable in connection with VPN 3/5
I recently started using a VPN, and my hope was that I could use the Speedtest app to measure how my connection speed was being affected by each of their servers, so I could always pick a good one.
Unfortunately after I've connected my VPN, even though every other Internet application on my Mac works without a restart, Speedtest hangs while looking for a test server. I have to quit and relaunch it.
Frustrating that it would be literally the only app that can't dynamically adjust its connection when a VPN is connected. At least in my use case, it negates the convenience of having a desktop app.
Automatically turns on after downloading on the computer, then turns off without dropping, keeps eating memory and eating CPU. has taken up 30g of my memory.
V1.11 - Bring Back Calibration Feature 4/5
I have always loved this app, but now find that I can't calibrate the dial to the maximum range of my router's bandwidth. Please bring this feature back and I'll have no problem rating it 5 stars!
Simple app that works 4/5
By Sergey P. Belous
I would like to see it have the functionality where I can sync it with my account, to track historical data.
One of the best apps in the app store! 5/5
By chef Efraim
I’ve been using the Ookla speedtest for years on my iPhones. Little did I know it was available for my Mac mini as well! The ISP techs always lie to you. but they can’t argue with the results from Olkla. Thaks to the developer for making this.
By Surf Rider
Love the app as it gives the most accurate results for faster ISP's than a browser can give...
SUGGESTION FOR THE DEVELOPER! It would be awesome if there was an estimated download/upload time based the tested speeds. Like, after the test is done, the user could input a file size and be given an esimated time it would take to upload or download said file. Simple little speed/file size
calculator in the app would be great!
Where’s the packet loss measurement? 1/5
App is showing 0% packet loss. I don’t believe it is even measuring packet loss. Any decent QOS measurement needs three things, packet loss, delay and jitter.
This app is worthless in diagnosing performance issues.
Very reliable 5/5
Troube shooting networks, ookla has been the relaibale and consistent baseline goto tool. It's terrific having dedicated app-based access on so many platforms. So much better than the old browsers days the required specific and trouble-matic plugin's for functionality. -Just saying.
Anyway I wanted to make a point of encouragement about the effort into so many apps that you maintain.
Also, the Apple TV app that I also use regularly has an issue (Mar 29, 2020) in the IP locator. It's always stuck on the same IP regardless of location, SIM chip and even carrier (e.g.. AT&T, t-Mobile,) It may be because in all my installations networks are removed (concealed behind) ISP pipes. -In any case since I can't report via Apple TV, i'll report it here.
Thanks for consistent realiability.
Thank You 5/5
Thank you for years of great service. Using MacOS, AppleTV and iOS apps working great for me.
My goto internet speed test - does just what it needs to do. 5/5
By Sab Gigo
This is a reliable and unobtrusive way to obtain a reading of your actual internet speed on any and all of your devices.
No ads or other distractions, either. Kudos to OOKLA.
Confused Mac versus PC results 2/5
I get different results for my iMac versus PC. My 2018 iMac is showing approx 95M download, while the older PC shows 400+M.
I don’t understand the reason for the difference. Enlighten me?

Great SpeedTest App! 5/5
I have always loved the versatility of Speedtest by Ookla. They provided multiple servers in varous location to test how it does in differenrt areas. Having Gigabit Speeds the app does show how my network is peforming.
Only thing I wished is that they whitelist Gigabit Speedtest Servers. Some servers you can tell they cap and can't reach gigabit speeds.
Great app! 5/5
I use the iphone versoin and the mac version and both are indispensable. Clean, easy to use interface. Provides all the information I need and shows status while test if being run. Highly recommend.
Great for keeping Internet provider honest 5/5
I’ve been using Speedtest for a few years. I recently have been having issues with my service being slow. I ran speed test and found my speed had been throttled down by 50%. I call the provider and of course they contested my claim. I asked them what service or app they recommend I use to monitor my speed. They mentioned Ookla. I them told them I have 3 years of history using this app and it shows the recent drop. Suddenly they paid attention and offered me a higher speed service for less money with a 3 year guarantee.
Needs 1GB Meter 4/5
A good app. Use it to periodically check my internet speed. However, I'm have 1 GB provisioning, and it would be nice for the app's meter speed dial to show up to 1000 MB instead of only up to 500 MB. Even though the dial only shows up to 500, the test does confirm speed approaching 1 GB.
Excellent App 5/5
By His Flyness
I’ve been using this app since the time it was just a website to perform speed checks. It only keeps getting better. Bravo!
everyone with macbook pro 1/5
after installing and running for the first time I can’t stop the app or uninstall it from my MacBook also because of this i cant install my regular security updates
I have 2 maybe 3 choices of internet.....
Xfinity nevers hits the speeds I pay for when I run a teston my Ookla test app. Called Xfinity out to check a while back anf they charged me a service call fee.
Adjustable scale needed. 3/5
By Oh, yeah!
Nice app. I like the design, easy to use, and it seems quite accurate. However, the scale is fixed at 500 Mbps. That's not sufficient for current gigabit download speeds. Would rate it 5 stars if the scale were adjustable.
Only 1 limit, increase the scale 4/5
I'd give this 5 stars except for one thing, the scal stops at 500Mbps. With the advent to Gigabit internet speeds why does the scale only go to 500. It should auto scale.
** NThe latest update still doesn't go over 500Mbps on the scale.
Scale 500 Mbps 2/5
Hello please update the scale range past 500 Mbps ... Come on Really
My GOTO app... 5/5
for keeping tabs on how Spectrum is doing. With it I try to keep them honest.
Add iperf 4/5
This is a great app. Any chance I could manually add IP of an internal Iperf Server. This way I could test to known Internet servers and internal Iperf to see WLAN/LAN and Internet differences?
Nice Simple App 4/5
Well done and simple to use.
A quite useful addition would be to report averages from several servers tested at the same time since results can vary greatly by server used.
just needs one more feature 5/5
I use Ookla several times a week, on my laptop and mobile devices, but the primary reason I do so is to see whether I have any web connectivity at all, regardless of the speed. Can you put a notification on the app icon that tells me I'm not connected to the web? Then I wouldn't be opening Ookla unnecessarily.
Great diagnostic 5/5
Easy to use and reliable.
There is one feature I have been wating for and have yet to see. As the list of servers continues to grow, It is hard to locate a specific server. I would love to have a search feature when selecting servers. I would like to search by name and/or by location.
Thanks for a great product.
Slight Problem 1/5
I love this app on the Mac and have used it for a long time and it has worked perfectly on all my devices including the web version. I am running v1.9 on current Mac Catalina OS and the app states "Cannot connect to the internet". I have redownloaded the app, authorized it in Security and Privacy, allowed it to see location, etc. Internet connection working fine for everything else including web version of Speedtest. I am giving one star only to get the attention of Oookla support and will go back to 5 stars. Can you suggest what to do?
Very handy and easy to use 5/5
Hassle-free speed checks. Way cool.
Artifacts on Main window 5/5
By DaveR in CA
Like the update Thank You. However there are some artifacts on the dial display window ( lower left corner ).
Can the dial range be extended upto 1 Mbps, I am currently getting just under 600Mbps?
Great Multi Platform App ... 5/5
This app is very valuable to me. I use the Mac Version, iOS version on my iPhone and iPad, and the AppleTV version on our Apple TV. Since the Mac is directtly connected to the Fibre Modem, I can verify the data speed to my house, then with the iOS versions I can verify wifi speeds in home areas and what the Apple TV is seeing. When used together, it is a very useful problem isolation tool.
I would love to see a realtime wifi speed graph which I can startup and let me see the wifi signal strength around the house ... but this is a great tool indeed!
No Quit 4/5
By Jon in China
Just tried the 1.9 update. Great. I put it down 1 star because when I went to quit, the menu command was greyed out. Checked the dock. Doc was not greyed out but would not quit.
Clicked red close button, and the window closed ok. Menu still greyed and the dock would still not quit.
I had to force quit. Other than that it worked great
Mac OS Mojave.
Always There When You Need It 5/5
I love the Speedtest by Ookla app. It's always there when you need it. No more googling speedtest and finding different services and getting different results. The speedtest app is always there, quick to find, quick to run, and a consistent app with all your history in one place for comparing results.
I love the app but updated to 1.9 and no longer works! 1/5
By Mac Daddy MJ-Z
Been using previous version on macOS 10.15.2 but this one is no go!
No gauge and 'field' under provider name?!?
PleaZe fix fast!
Use Ookla all the time 5/5
As a thrity-five eyar veteran of computer consulting, repair and instruction, I appreciate a simple, accurate and accessible tool for measuring internet performance, regardless of where I am at or whose computer system I am working on.
For years now I have been using Ookla as my primary measure of internet connectivity and performance. It has armed me for discussions with internet providers that sometimes have left them speechless on the otheer end of the phone. And in some cases has helped them solve nasty issues they would have preferred to ignore.
Update will not download 3/5
After a couple of weeks of trying to get this update to download I’m ready to give up.
A suspicious thing about the prior version is that it always reads higher speeds than any other speed test. The web based version at least give the option of multiple connection tests and single stream but the app does not and does not explain how it is getting the numbers it displays. Multi-stream or single? I’m always suspicious of apps that are offered by ISPs like Comcast. It does, at least, show that Comcast starts the transfer at an abysmally slow rate until about 5 seconds into the transfer when they allow you the speed you paid for.
I love relying on Speedtest to constanly remind me to keep after my internet provider that need to be watched, all the time.
love it! 5/5
I love speedtest - our devices (mostly iPhoneXRs) often drop wireless connection in our house, so it's a lifesaver to know when to reset our router vs telling my family to reset their devices!
One of the things I love about speedtest.net is tthe results history that's available across computers. It would be really great to have a way to have the apps (desktop and phone) talk to each other as well as the browser version so all my results could be available in all of the places I use speedtest. But that's the only thing I'd change, the rest is great!
Speedtest by Ookla 5/5
By Tio Gritty
I've been using this service to check my bandwidth on my mobile devices for a few years now and have been happy with accurate results. Glad to have found the Mac app.
Definetly the Best 5/5
This is the best and most reliable app to test internet speeds that I have come across. I use it on all my devices and I love that they put effort into making apps for all the devices that I use. Great app!!
