    Look for the speed test.
    The company name is "Ookla", so we will type that into search. This brought up the suggestion "ookla speed test", which is what we want.

  9. 9
    Tap one time on the app.
    Now we can see it's called the "Speedtest.net Mobile Speed Test". What this allows us to do is test the speed of our mobile device or connection. We will be taken to the actual application page. Some people may be wondering why this is helpful. The reason that it's helpful is that it allows us to troubleshoot connectivity issues between our wireless provider or phone provider and our Internet or home provider. This means that we will be able to tell where a problem is. For example, if we could not connect to the Internet on our home account, but we could connect to it over cellular or vice versa, we can quickly and easily determine who the real cause of the problem is. We can also tell how fast a connection is. If, for example, we are paying for 4G speeds, but only getting 2G speeds.

  10. 10
    Tap on the "GET", "INSTALL", or "OPEN" icon, or the little cloud.
    It depends on the version as to which one will be present. In our case, it says "OPEN", as we've previously downloaded it. If it says "GET", it will install, and it will trigger a password entry field. It depends on where we are in this process. Once the application is downloaded, it will automatically begin to install.

  11. 11
    Once the install procedure has completed, look for the icon on the home screen.
    It is blue with a little white speedometer, as shown on the App Store page. Tap the icon on the home screen to continue, or tap "OPEN" from the App Store page to continue.

    Find the Ookla Speedtest application.
    The icon is blue with a white speedometer indicating that we are moving at a high rate of speed. It is labeled "OOKLA" on the icon, and "Speedtest" below as the name. Give it a single press. One press on the Ookla Speedtest application will open the app.

  5. 5
    Find the best testing area.
    Then we can tap and begin the test. We can see on the top of the phone that we're connected over WiFi, as indicated by the little WiFi signal icon. We can also see that our location services are currently being used, as we have given permission to use location services to Ookla. If the phone does not automatically ask about location services, that's not an issue. We can still use the speed test. However, we may want to go over to the Settings panel and use some of the functions there to change that.

    The app will test speed.
    The speedometer animation will move across to show how fast it is. We are on a 4G portable LTE little connection box made by Huawei. It's why our connection speeds are okay. They could be better, but this is what we have for now.

    When the test concludes, an advertisement will pop up.
    The advertisement is based on our location. Fortunately, our location means we don't have to see that ad. We just get a white box. Press the "x" in the top right corner of the ad to close it.

    Let's look at the test itself.
    Note that our download speed was very consistent, whereas our upload speed was all over the place. This is indicated by the graphs beneath "DOWNLOAD" and "UPLOAD". This is the sort of information that lets us know whether or not there's a problem with our connection. In this case, there's no problem with our download speed. Our average upload speed is about the same as our download, at 11.73 Mbps, but as we can see, it's all over the place. The graph shows that there's nothing in the beginning, then it spikes up extremely fast, then it goes back down to nothing and then it spikes back up again. This is the sort of thing that can create a problem for us or anyone using our connection or sharing a connection with us.
