Internet Ping Test

Ping-test.net is a simple tool which measures not only the download and the upload speeds of your Internet connection like many Speed Test sites, but it measures also the latency. What does it mean? The latency result is equivalent to the ping command result. In the practice, it shows how much time a packet needs to pass the route from your computer to the server and back. You probably have seen your ping many times when you were playing online games (e.g. Counter-Strike: Global Offensive or World of Warcraft). However, ping-test.net tool is better than standard ping command, because ping-test.net measures the latency for small and large packets. It may happen that large packets are fragmented in your ISP network. In this case, the latency for large packets will be higher than for the small ones. Standard ping command will not show you this difference.

Small latency (i.e. so-called ping) is not important only for online games. The big delay decreases also the quality of VoIP (Voice over IP) and Video calls (e.g. Skype). In extreme cases, large ping may also slow the response time of webpages and other online services.

The result of ping test highly depends on the number of nodes on the path between your computer and the server. These nodes are called routers and they are responsible for packet transmitting from the source IP address to the target IP address. Each packet has to be processed by the router and this operation takes some time. Also, the ping is increased by the delay introduced by physical link between two routers. Therefore, the large latency is visible in case of intercontinental connections where very long fiber links are used.

High ping values may be also observed in case of overloaded routers, links or servers. All network elements use the FIFO (First In First Out) queue, i.e. all received packets are stored in the buffer and the oldest packet is processed as the first. The overload happens when the router or the server can not process all packets on time due to the link speed or resources limitations. In this case, the packet is stored in the buffer for a longer time.
