    OOKLA releases new Speedtest app (UWP)


    Just out on WinBeta, story about (and pointer to) a new Speedtest app for Windows. This one runs on the Universal Windows Platform, so it works on Mobile and PC devices.

    Speedtest for Windows Phone has been available for quite some time, but to test your internet speed using Ookla’s services, you had to go to their website. Fortunately, a new app for Windows 10 PCs and the Surface Hub has been released.

    Thank you for the update. I installed and it is much more fancy that their old one.

    Everybody's welcome! Because of my Windows Enterprise Desktop blog, I surf the news several times daily. Brink almost always beats me to the punch -- Go BRINK! -- but I'm glad to chime in with the occasional nugget when I can.
