    alot of people use the speedtest app. I really don't know any other apps other than that one. Just search "speed test" and see what you get

    SpeedTest.net app is my favorite, as it is quite accurate for both 3G/4G and for WiFi and also keeps track of every result you ever get along with the server you utilized and the date/time of the test. This can be extremely useful for things such as determining if there is a new 4G tower closer to you or so forth. Plus, it's free! Just be careful if you have a limited data plan, as it can chew through the bytes!

    So, what are good results?
    I just tested for the first time (WiFi) and here's what I got;
    Ping 41ms
    Download 12440kbps
    Upload 2121kbps

    What's it mean?

    I seem to have better results in a good 4g zone than at home on WiFi. Does that make sense?

    Yes, at time 4g can be faster than your home network. Most people with wifi probably get around 15-20mbps, 4g can easily (depending on traffic on the tower) can exceed 25mbps.

    For 4g and Wifi throughout the day, I get about the same. At night, 4g is usually quicker for me, I've seen 32mbps a few times, but that's a rarity
