MegaPath Tool Lets Businesses Test Connection Quality

MegaPath announced Wednesday the availability of Speed Test Plus, an online monitoring application that enables users to check the speed and quality of their broadband connections.

Speed Test Plus analyzes line quality characteristics and provides recommendations to improve bandwidth and support business communications, such as voice over IP.

Speed Test Plus goes beyond testing the connection speed and allows organizations to quickly measure for other factors, like latency and jitter, that can affect the user experience when browsing the Web, making VoIP calls, streaming video, or using any other Web-based applications,” said Beth Tyebjee, MegaPath’s senior vice president of marketing.

The tool, which is based on the speed test application MegaPath acquired through its merger with Speakeasy and Covad Communications in 2010, measures download speed, upload speed, packet loss, latency and jitter. It also provides a Mean Opinion Score (MOS), which is the numerical score used to predict the quality of a voice call.

MegaPath provides data, voice and security services for small, medium and enterprise businesses nationwide.
