Ping Testing

I don’t know about anyone else, but today has been a strange day on the Internet for streaming. I noticed that Amazon prime’s quality was horrible and the same was true on KODI. KODI might have been a little better because it could buffer more.

I ran speediest.net and I had over 10 Mpbs and a reasonable Ping time.

Interesting enough, I received the following CC Contact Email today on another Ping utility.

I was doing some market research on network tools and came across your page on Cable Onda Speed Tests on December 19 here: http://www.chiriquichatter.net/blog/2014/12/19/cable-onda-speed-tests-on-december-19/. As an engineer, I have to say that you put together a well-researched, comprehensive list. Nice work!

I’m not sure if you’re aware of this, but Dotcom-Monitor (the company I work for) has an awesome Ping Test where you can instantly test network connectivity from 20+ locations around the world! We send ICMP packets to the host and measure the response time, logging any errors that occur. I don’t know of any other company that offers the same thing… not for free at least. You can try it yourself at: https://www.dotcom-tools.com/ping-test.aspx

I ran several ping tests to amazon.com and ibm.com and got several. Tonight I am getting nothing but failures as seen in my last test.

How is everyone else’s Internet today or tonight?

  1. Yes, it is kind of confusing. I put in my IP address, answered the ‘are you human’ math problem and hit Start Test. I don’t know, maybe I did something wrong.

  2. Hello Don , question for you. I know the US Embassy will be in Boquete this month and we need pages added to our passports. Do you know if we have to turn our passports in order them to do this or can they do them while we wait ?
    Thank you

  3. To add pages, they will have to physically have your passports and this can only be done in Panama City. My assumption is they can take your passports and they can return your passports via DHL.
