Speedtest by Ookla is one of the most popular internet speed testing services in the world and now, it has announced the first-of-its-kind 10 Gigabit (Gbps) capable speed measuring feature for the Speedtest applications. This upgradation will equip enterprises and individuals to measure their internet speeds up to 10Gbps as networks around the world continue to develop and are getting faster with every passing day.
On the other hand, this new feature of Speedtest by Ookla will be showcased in action at Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2019, which is being held in Barcelona this week. Ookla has said that as India paves the way for more innovative technologies to drive transformation and gears up for the fifth-generation cellular technology, which is 5G connectivity, it becomes even important for larger businesses and organizations to share and receive high volumes of data at phenomenal 10Gbps data speeds.
The company has further added that while the new upgrade for Speedtest by Ookla will be rolled soon, 10 Gbps speeds are the next big frontier in telecom, and with the onset of 5G globally, users will be able to upload and download huge files, download heavy videos to share with clients, or download 100 videos within a second.
Also, as 4K and 8K movies, high-resolution VR, and UHD game streaming from cloud servers grow in popularity, high-bandwidth internet service will become necessary in near future. Having a 10Gbps Speedtest means that organizers of huge events like Mobile World Congress (MWC) can use Speedtest to ensure that their infrastructure is fast enough to serve thousands of attendees.―Times Now
