In the technical files of smartphones we usually indicate that they have LTE with such or such category. That is usually accompanied by a “up to” X Gbps and, in theory, the 4G mobile networks we have usually support them. But from theory to practice goes a stretch and unlike fiber optic, the mobile connection does not usually have a stable traffic. Let’s tell you how know in real time the speed of 4G of your mobile with a simple app.
How we indicated, a speed test can tell us at that moment the gigas of download and upload that we have … but we can not be doing that test all the time to have a knowledge of the speed that has the 4G of our mobile – besides that we would spend a lot of data -. For this we can take advantage of an application that will allow us to monitor and know the speed in real time of the 4G of the mobile, including the information in the notification bar as well as through a widget.
The application in question is Network Speed (or Speed of the Network, as it will appear on your mobile) and has a simple and practical operation. Just install it, we can see a graph that will tell us both the current speed of our 4G connection (or wifi, if we connect to the router) as well as the maximum speed reached and the network that we are using by our operator (something useful if we have an OMV SIM).
In addition, it also keeps track of the MB that we have used every day as well as the ones we have spent through connection mobile and Wifi separately. We can also check the applications that have connected to the Internet, which will help us detect if one is doing what it should not (with all the problem of Facebook is more than interesting for many), and we can even have controlled those that are connected in the background always. It is also possible to know the data that each application has used, both in mobile and WiFi, and keep track of the permissions we have given you.
It is a free application but has ads that we can remove if we access the Pro version, which costs 2.49 euros, and is a payment that must be made within the app itself.
So, in short, if you want to have a control of both the speed in real time of your 4G connection and know how much the apps spend and when they connect, this app will solve your problem.
