On November 15, 2012, the Italian Communications Regulatory Authority (“AGCOM”) issued the new free software known as “The Bandwith Speed Test” (“Misura Internet Speed Test”), which can be downloaded on the webpage www.misurainternet.it

This new software allows  fixed-line internet users to test the internet speed connection and verify in just 4 minutes: (a) the download bandwidth, (b) the upload bandwidth and (c) the delay – RTT (Round Trip Time).

The Bandwith Speed Test has been developed, pursuant to article no. 72 of the Italian Electronic Communications Code, to make available to internet users comparable, adequate and updated information of the quality of the services offered by operators.
