To test how good or bad your Internet service is, you have to know few terms. Lets learn them first.

 Ping: Also known as latency. Ping is the reaction time of your internet connection. Reaction means how quickly your device gets a response after sending a request. A fast(low) ping means a good flexible connection. Ping is measured in milliseconds (ms). 0-50ms ping is the standard for very good connection.

Jitter: Also known as Packet Delay Variation (PDV), jitter is the measurement of variability in ping. Jitter is not usually noticeable when browsing light website, but when you streaming and gaming a high jitter can cause buffering and interruptions. The acceptable jitter number is upto 100ms.

Download Speed: Download speed is how much data you can pull from a server on the internet to your device per second.

Upload Speed: Your upload speed is how much data you can send from your device to the internet or server per second.

That is all the most important terms to know.
