The main “speed test” M-Lab uses (and which over 1 million people a day run) is called the Network Diagnostic Tool (NDT). NDT is actually more than a “speed” test, it was designed originally to measure a variety of different network connection variables to help diagnose network issues.

The new ndt7 protocol for the Network Diagnostic Tool (NDT) is now generally available on the M-Lab platform. Since 2009, NDT has been the premier TCP performance measurement service test hosted by M-Lab. During its history on the platform, NDT has produced the largest test volume to date, spanning the longest history. So, if you have adobe flash player installed in your PC,  go to Charter Communications  from this link and check internet speed just by clicking Begin Test button. As soon as you click the button, your broadband internet speed will be started measuring and you can see your download and upload speed as a summery after completing measurement.

To run “TestIT” is an iOS/Android mobile app that leverages a broadband sampling tool designed by Measurement Lab (MLab) to aggregate broadband speeds across the country from app users. With the press of a single button, users will be able to test their broadband speed from anywhere.

Download speed is most relevant for people who are consuming content on the Internet, and we want FAST.com to be a very simple and fast speed test. What about ping, latency, upload and other things? When you click the “Show more info” button, you can see your upload speed and connection latency (ping).

Right now, people can use M-Lab tests to measure their broadband speed, analyze application performance, and run diagnostics. The most commonly run test is the Network Diagnostic Tool (NDT), which provides measurements like upload speed, download speed, and other data points that help to measure speed and quality issues on your connection.
