Well, the answer is simpler than expected.
Internet Traffic Report
All of the questions above lead to an answer that is totally related to Internet Traffic, Response Time (measured in ms) & Packet Data loss. (To know about these terms, simply select text and click ‘Learn More’)
A basic, user can only find out this information only up to the ISPs computer he is connected to but it is difficult to otherwise detect any problem beyond own ISP. Hence S/he cannot find out the origin of the problem.
Recently, while browsing I came across this website called Internet Traffic Report. This website offers key information about Internet Traffic around the World segmented into regions North America, South America, Europe, Asia and Australia. Africa and Antarctica continents are not yet listed on their website.
What is Internet Traffic Report website?
The Internet Traffic Report monitors the flow of data around the world. It then displays a value between zero and 100. Higher values indicate faster and more reliable connections.
The website gets updated every 5 minutes, which means you can get latest (or we can say Differed Live) Internet traffic information. The graphs of this website gets updated every night.
What is a Traffic Index?
The “traffic index” is a score from 0 to 100 where 0 is “slow” and 100 is “fast”. It is determined by comparing the current response of a ping echo to all previous responses from the same router over the past 7 days. A score of 0 to 100 is then assigned to the current response depending on if this response is better or worse than all previous responses from that router.
This website is fairly simple to view and understand. They have a detailed yet simplified FAQ section if anything is not completely understood. The site mainly powered by AnalogX. You can find out more about it here
So next time if your Internet is acting sluggish do not forget to check this website while you are on call to ISPs Customer Care (I know how long they take to answer).
