For those of you who have heard about the FCC Speed Test we are pleased to say that the Android app has already appeared on the Google Play Store. The FCC Speed Test accesses real-time performance data on your Android device and the historical results are available at just the touch of a screen. Tests run automatically and manual tests such as Download Speed, Latency, Upload Speed and even Packet Loss can be manually checked too. There are additional passive metrics collected over time such as Cell ID, Signal Strength and even the GPS location. Keep in mind that your disable the Wi-Fi on your Android device before testing cellular broadband speeds. The best part is that this is an official app to help FCC’s Measuring Broadband America program and is free of advertisements.
