The truth about the etisalat speed test
How does the etisalat speed test work?
It works by measuring how long it takes your device to send and receive data, divided by the amount of data sent and received, resulting in kilobytes per second (kbps). Although it’s important to take this information with a grain of salt, as different devices tend to handle data differently and faster devices usually send more data at once, it can still give you an idea of what to expect from your device’s connection. Read on to learn more about the etisalat speed test and how you can use it to enhance your online experience.
How the etisalat speed test was created
When Etisalat announced its new network in Nigeria, it invited tech websites to perform a stress test on its system. However, after running several tests on websites like Ookla, which was initially hired by Etisalat for their testing purposes, it was found that their results were massively overrated and most of them were conducted during off-peak hours when data traffic is at its lowest.
The results of a speed test at different times of day
Check out these results from a comparison of 11 different times throughout one day. Speedtest showed that downloading speeds varied dramatically with some times being as slow as 0.56 mbps (megabits per second) and upload speeds being even slower at 0.28 mbps. This is what happens when an internet connection is shared with far too many users: it slows down for everyone, no matter how much you pay for your internet service provider or what kind of computer you have.
How accurate is the e-speedtest really?
The e-speedtest is a very neat tool that measures internet speeds. The only problem is that it doesn’t always measure your true internet speeds, as there are several variables that come into play when you check your connection. In order to get a proper reading of your connection speed, follow these steps
How reliable are other internet speed tests?
Many people have tried doing their own Etisalat Speed Test. The results are usually very unreliable because other internet speed tests like Ookla NetMetrics, bandwidthplace and others don’t give a good estimation of how well your connection will perform while using services that stream videos or perform video calls. If you want an accurate understanding of your download speeds, do a test on it every now and then using Etisalat Speed Test app.
What's your experience with the e-speedtest?
I was playing online games on my pc when I suddenly got disconnected. I tried logging in, but couldn't. After calling Etisalat customer care, they told me that their system was busy and there would be a short delay to my service; apparently, it would be resumed within two hours. I didn't get a call from them until 3 days later when I asked what exactly is happening to my line, and they said it had been suspended because of abnormal usage. Excuse me? Abnormal usage?
Was it worth switching from Airtel to Etisalat?
Have you recently switched from Airtel to Etisalat? Has it helped your download speeds or has it been a major let down? It’s a good thing that you are here as I am going to take a look at how well Etisalat is performing in terms of upload and download speeds. So, is switching from Airtel to Etisalat worth it? Let’s find out.
