Opensignal Speed Tests

Opensignal speed tests measure your real experience of mobile connectivity and signal. The speed test runs a 10 sec download test, 10 sec upload test and ping test to determine the speed you will likely experience. The speed test runs on common internet CDN servers. The result is calculated with the middle range of samples.

Check if you're getting the network quality you're paying for from your mobile network or internet provider. Use our coverage maps to compare networks and data speed in your area. Opensignal works with WiFi mobile broadband internet.

Video Speed Tests

Slow video load time? Video buffering? More time waiting than watching? A good average network speed isn’t enough for a great video experience. Opensignal’s video test gives you the full picture of your network experience. Opensignal video tests show you exactly what to expect with HD and SD videos.

Watch a 15 sec video snippet to test and log load time, buffering, and playback issues in real-time.
Monitor how video quality changes with time and location. Review video test results in History to see if your network experience has changed over time.

Coverage Map

Opensignal’s coverage maps show signal strength down to street level using speed test and signal data from local users. With network stats on local network operators, you can check speeds ahead of a trip, find out if you will get a signal in remote areas, check your signal against others in the area to see if you’re getting the best service, arrange the best local SIM and check the signal strength when travelling.

Improving Network Connectivity

We provide an independent source of truth in mobile network experience: A data source that shows how users experience mobile network speeds, gaming, video and voice services worldwide. To do this, we collect data on the signal strength, network, location and other device sensors. You can stop this at any time in the settings. We share this data with network operators globally and others in the industry to drive better connectivity for all.

On its way to success..

The application is different than the rest, with the idea of a compass directing you to the nearest tower. And the ability to check the speed of you Wi-Fi’s, download, upload, and latency.
The people that write a negative review forget a couple of things.. First, the application is Free! There is so much a free application can do without it being a “ Professional Technician “ and charge you.
Second, even though some of things on the app have bugs, I believe that’s the reason why updates were created.
Third and last, the developer of the application is actually responding your entitled reviews and fixing the issue that you complain about because you can’t afford a professional to fix your internet. Lol!

Great app but needs some tuning.

Been using this app for over a year now and it seems to really gives you the best average speed test rather than maximum speed. I have Ookla SpeedTest and I use it to compare the differences of its performance and Ookla (and other speed test app) does only give you what your cell signal/Wi-Fi maximum speed is and Open Signal gives you the real speed that you’re always averaging. This app would be perfect if the developer can make it for you to delete your old test records (you can but it comes back after resetting the app) and needs to add location to where you test your signal and Wi-Fi so you can keep track of where you had already test the signal. There seems to be a problem with the find cellular signal. I’m standing right next to my cellular sever (T-Mobile) and it’s pointing away from it?. Other then that this is a great speed test app. 3 stars for now.

Disappointed

I have been using this app to find towers while boondocking in the desert, it helps me point my Yagi antenna at the nearest tower. Well the latest update removed that function so this app is now just about useless as i normally only have one tower in range, I just need to know where it is, this app used to do that, no more so will have to find another way. Why you removed the best feature is beyond me.

*UPDATE* I have updated my review two 4 stars as the developers have brought back the compass, which was to me the most important feature, redesigned, might want to add a direction marker at the top of the screen as it is not readily apparent which direction is the alignment point.

Developer Response ,

Thank you for your feedback. We had to take out the signal compass for a little while to fix a number of bugs but I'm glad to report that we have now added it back; all fixed, re-designed and ready for you to use. We hope you'll like the latest version of the app and find it more useful!
