LibreSpeed directly selects a test server. The speed test first test the ping and jitter time, followed by your download speed and your upload speed.

### Free to use

LibreSpeed is free, there are no ads so the speed test earns 1 point.

### Easy to use

LibreSpeed didn't pass the WCAG 2.0 Level A test.

The speed test could be started with 1 click, so 1 point is earned.

### Accuracy and consistency

Tested with a clean version of Google Chrome, the following measurements are done (for the "Cable" test).

Test Server: Amsterdam, Netherlands (Clouvider)

- 54.4Mbps (11 seconds)
- 54.3Mbps (10 seconds)
- 54.3Mbps (11 seconds)
- 54.1Mbps (10 seconds)
- 54.4Mbps (10 seconds)

Tested with a clean version of Firefox, the following measurements are done (for the "Cable" test).

Test Server: Amsterdam, Netherlands (Clouvider)

- 54.5Mbps (10 seconds)
- 54.0Mbps (10 seconds)
- 54.4Mbps (11 seconds)
- 54.4Mbps (11 seconds)
- 54.3Mbps (10 seconds)

That gives an average of 54.3Mbps and a standard deviation of 0.15Mbps for the downloadspeed. The average and standard deviation for the time required are respectively 10 seconds and 0.5 second.

Note that based on the Google Chrome measurements the average download speed is 54.3Mbps with a standard deviation of 0.12Mbps. While the Firefox measurements gives an average download speed of 54.3Mbps with a standard deviation of 0.19Mbps.

With a server manually selected at the other side of the world (Test Server: Sydney, Australia (Linode)) and testing with Firefox, the results are:

- 46.8Mbps (16 seconds)
- 47.7Mbps (15 seconds)
- 48.1Mbps (15 seconds)
- 46.9Mbps (15 seconds)
- 47.6Mbps (15 seconds)

That gives an average of 47.4Mbps and a standard deviation of 0.55Mbps for the downloadspeed. That is 13% slower than the previous test.
