    What is the best iPad internet speed test app? I have "Speed Test for iPad" but it gives such inconsistent results that I don't believe the results.

    The results are most likely correct. Everytime you start the test, the test is likely to have taken a different route to get to the server. Some routes are direct, some might be routed half way around the world, thus slower than the more direct routes. Everything effects speed, time of day, route, load on the net, breaking news stories and well everything else.

    I just use the Safari browser to go to Mobile Speed test

    It's not flashy or anything, but it gives a general idea of how your connection is doing.

    Hi you can have your i Pad internet speed test at here www.ip-details.com. It gives you the result in both MBps and Mbps. It will also show accurate speed results.

    Use Speed test Mobile app. When I test with the iPad alongside a PC the results are pretty much the same providing that all other apps on the iPad and all applications on the PC is closed.
    It could also be useful to select the server from settings before starting the test. This should provide a reasonable consistent comparison when doing the tests from the same physical location.
