MyConnection PC Lite Edition
Internet connection speeds have grown exponentially in the past few years, as did the size of the files we are transferring nowadays.
In order to perform various tests regarding the download and upload speeds of your computer, specialized software must be used for accurate results.
View details about the available Internet bandwidth
MyConnection PC Lite Edition is an application that enables you to properly test out your connection speed, by running various performance checks on the quality of your Internet service. The result are displayed in a convenient and easy-to-follow graph form and they depict information about the download speed, round trip time and timer accuracy.
The first graph measures the application speed, which is the actual speed you can achieve when you are actively downloading a file off a website. In addition, you can also view the speed consistency, maximum delay during the test session and the total amount of bandwidth available for your connection.
View capacity speed graphs and change the proxy settings
Although the application speed is the one you should keep an eye on, you can also view the total capacity speed of your connection, in order to be aware of your system's peak performance. This section, same as the previous one, displays information about the download speed, round trip time and the number of sockets used. Furthermore, the capacity speed test is only available as a 15 days trial, after which it becomes unusable.
The tools menu offers you access to the proxy settings, which enable you to set up a server through which to reroute your connections, along with its port and login credentials. However, by doing so you may cause the application to yield erroneous results and display inaccurate data about your connection speed.
Although the number of features is severely limited, MyConnection PC Lite Edition does display a decent amount of information about your download and upload speed, as well as a few other small details. Thanks to the intuitive user interface, the application can be a good choice for those of you who are looking for a lightweight solution to check on your Internet connection speeds.
