SpeedSmart directly shows you the name of your internet service provider, the test server it will use and your IP address. The speed test first test the ping time, followed by your download speed and your upload speed.

SpeedSmart gives you the option to view your (???) test history, and has the option to select another test server.

### Free to use

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

### Easy to use

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

The speed test could be started with 1 click, so 1 point is earned. Note that the website uses cookies, but doesn't notify the user regarding these cookies. Hence there is no click needed for the cookie notification.

### Accuracy and consistency

Tested with a clean version of Chromium, throtteld at 30Mbps (30720 kbps) the following measurements are done (for the "Cable" test).

Test Server: Amsterdam

- 33.48Mbps (14 seconds)
- 33.40Mbps (16 seconds)
- 33.34Mbps (16 seconds)
- 33.40Mbps (16 seconds)
- 33.36Mbps (16 seconds)

Tested with a clean version of Firefox, throtteld at 30Mbps (Wi-Fi) the following measurements are done (for the "Cable" test).

Test Server: Amsterdam

- 33.22Mbps (15 seconds)
- 33.21Mbps (15 seconds)
- 33.15Mbps (16 seconds)
- 33.18Mbps (16 seconds)
- 33.06Mbps (16 seconds)

That gives an average of 33.3Mbps and a standard deviation of 0.13Mbps for the downloadspeed. The average and standard deviation for the time required are respectively 16 seconds and 1 second.

Note that based on the Chromium measurements the average download speed is 33.4Mbps with a standard deviation of 0.05Mbps. While the Firefox measurements gives an average download speed of 33.2Mbps with a standard deviation of 0.06Mbps.

Based on the measurements noted above you might conclude that the throttling speed of Firefox compared to the throttling speed of Chromium is significant different. The throttling speed of Firefox is 0.6% less compared to Chromium.

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

- 33.23Mbps (24 seconds)
- 33.25Mbps (25 seconds)
- 33.51Mbps (24 seconds)
- 32.99Mbps (24 seconds)
- 32.48Mbps (25 seconds)

That gives an average of 33.1Mbps and a standard deviation of 0.39Mbps for the downloadspeed. That is 0.5% slower than the previous test.
