How do I test the speed in Speedify?
Speedify allows you to test your individual and combined connection speeds from within the app itself. In this article, we are going to show you how to test your speeds and how to interpret any messages that may appear.
After connecting to one or more internet networks, tap the Test Speed from the Settings menu. A new pane will appear at the top of the screen. Here, you will see Speedify do real-time speed test for your connection(s).
Speedify conducts the tests sequentially: it tests the download and upload speeds of each connection, before testing your combined speeds. The combined row shows just how much faster Speedify is making your internet! Be aware that the Test Speed feature uses a lot of data, so you may want to run it sparingly if you have a limited data plan or if you are using a free Speedify Plan.
Why wasn’t my connection used?
Sometimes Speedify doesn’t use your connections when testing your speed. In these cases, we will display messages in the Test Speed pane. The connection row that is not being used will also display crosshatching.
Below, we explain why this may happen.
[Connection name] is set to Backup priority.
Your Backup connection is not being included in the test because you have available Always or Normal connections that Speedify is using instead. (When a connection’s priority is set to Backup, Speedify only includes the connection in the combined test if there are no Always or Normal connections. Speedify will never run individual tests on Backup connections.)
[Connection name] is over Daily/Monthly Limit.
One of your connections is not being included in the test because it has reached its Daily/Monthly Limit, and because you have Always or Normal connections available that Speedify is using instead. (When a connection is rate limited because it reaches its Daily/Monthly Limit, Speedify only includes the connection in the combined test if there are no Always or Normal connections. Speedify will never run individual tests on Rate Limited connections.)
[Connection name] is disabled.
A disabled connection will not be included in the test. You’ll have to enable the connection in Connection Settings if you would like to include it.
Can't connect to [Connection name].
Your connection was not used because Speedify could not connect to it.
