All of us who pay monthly for Internet service for our home, to which we then connect devices such as computers, expect the quality of the service to be up to standard. Of course, the problem is that even when we notice that it is performing below expectations, we will need to complete a series of tests to confirm this.
And although there are many good online platforms, in this case, we believe that the best solution is to look for software that always details our Internet connection's performance. NetSpeedMonitor is one of the best alternatives in this field, so we can't stop recommending it.
As we were saying, NetSpeedMonitor is a service that quickly and easily monitors the capacity of our Internet connection, measuring both the upload and download speed of the service at all times. In this way, with just a glance at the information it provides, we will know if the connection is running slower than it should.
One thing we liked about this application is that although it constantly collects data about the upload and download speeds of our Internet, it is never annoying or invasive. It is located in the System bar and works unnoticed most of the time, so we can continue performing all our tasks without noticing that it is running in the background.
Another feature that we believe can be useful to many users is to do with the fact that we can select the unit of measurement that we are interested in, so it can be the one that is used in our country. Similarly, if we have to generate traffic reports to share them with someone else, this will give us greater customization possibilities.
And as we said before, unlike other software for monitoring the quality of our Internet service, NetSpeedMonitor can produce traffic reports in HTML format for downloading to our PC. The exciting thing about this option is that when we download the reports, we can later access them without being connected to the Internet or easily share them via social networks, email, etc.
Even if, for some reason, we want to deactivate this little helper, we can conclude its operations in just a second by keeping its icon in the background to reactivate it when we consider it appropriate. We also have the possibility of selecting whether we want the program to start together with our computer or if it should work only when we run it manually.
To bear in mind
NetSpeedMonitor is a versatile tool that has been developed to work in almost all versions of the operating system Windows, so you have nothing to worry about to take advantage of it if you have several computers. Its consumption of system resources, moreover, is almost non-existent.
As for this application's user interface, we have to say that it stands out, especially for how simple it is when interpreting the information it can collect, preventing us from wasting time reading the data. Although it could indeed be more modern, in this case, we value above all the excellent organization of the contents that it proposes.
We can mention some of the main positive features of this software, such as the minimum consumption of system resources and the possibility of running in the background, making it unnoticeable. Besides, we liked that reports can be generated in HTML format to store them on the computer and then access them without an Internet connection or share them easily with third parties.
The worst thing
There are no significant criticisms that can be made of this platform, taking into account that it has a relatively modest purpose. Still, it always fulfills it without us noticing its presence on our computers. Perhaps it could be improved in terms of the attractiveness of its interface or add some extra functions to the basic ones, but the truth is that we felt very comfortable during our first approach to this app.
Although it is a somewhat essential tool, the exciting thing about NetSpeedMonitor is that it fulfills the purpose for which it has been developed, which is to show us at all times the performance of our Internet connection. Although it has not been updated for some time, and this can be seen from the aesthetic point of view, for example, we do not doubt that it is an ideal option for undemanding users or computers that are somewhat old and lacking in power.
