How does it work?

StreamTest.net has specifically designed and built a highly powerful and unique steaming test platform that consists of a measuring application and a test results program. Once diagnostic platform has been activated it measures the end user's streaming experience by accessing and sampling hundreds of relevant test perimeters and data points that make up a single user's streaming experience while the end user is actually streaming.

Equally important to this process is the Results program. Once the seconds long test has been completed all the data gathered is calculated and rendered into an organized and relevant fashion suitable for the many stakeholders that exist within the streaming media ecosystem. The key, from our position, is to create test results that when read are meaningful, provide both information and direction, even presenting solutions where applicable.
