Satellite Broadband Internet Link Speed Testing:Terrestrial ADSL broadband speed checkers do not work well over satellite links and we cannot accept results obtained from these sites; use these alternatives:
- Satellite Broadband Internet Link Speed Testing involves transmitting and receiving large files in order to determine the link characteristics. You should use these tools sparingly as they can seriously erode your bandwidth allowances.
- The computer/laptop running the speed test must be connected directly to the satellite modem via an Ethernet cable. Results obtained from running speed tests via the data router or Wi-Fi cannot be accepted.
- Results from speed tests are recorded by the platform
for diagnostic purposes.
Tooway:Tooway users have an on line speed testing tool at http://speedprobe.skylogicnet.com/ that checks the link latency, jitter, packet losses and speed. It gives good results when compared to NetPerSec (see below). Please note that you have to be connected to your satellite service to use this link.
Avanti:Avanti's speed testing tool is on the web check portal at http://mystats.avantiplc.com or http://portal.avantiplc.com It gives good results when compared to NetPerSec (see below). Please note that you have to be connected to your satellite service to use these links.
Avanti also recommend using NetPerSec to check your down load/up load speeds. It is a very simple tool that allows you to monitor the traffic through your network port whilst you down load/up load files to the internet. Try using your email client to send a 3-4Mb jpg or pdf file to yourself. Please note that NetPerSec is for use with Windows operating systems only.
This useful MS Excel spreadsheet can be used to calculate the Azimuth and Elevation values for steerable satellite antennae and for fixed antenna installations. It's easy to use and accurate enough for most applications.
Every care has been taken to ensure that the software we provide is accurate and that files are free from errors and computer viruses. Simply Balanced, its employees and agents can take no responsibility for any loss, financial or otherwise or for any damage caused to any equipment or data through use of this software.
If you decide to download and use this software the responsibility is yours alone.
