The article offers the author's insights on the network speed tests that he conducted in various areas in the U.S. He tells that he conducts tests many times per day from his room hotel with the use of different modems such as Verizon LTE and Clear WiMAX, wherein he make measurements of on as many networks as he can from several locations. He notes that he prefers to use the Speakeasy.net/speedtest because it provides both uplink and downlink testing and testing from servers throughout the U.S.
