- If you have users in various locations, to accurately test their bandwidth you will need to have multiple test servers in different locations. Otherwise the calculated result will not be accurate enough and probably misleading. SpeedOf.Me API allows you to take advantage of its network infrastructure (60 PoPs) and that will be much cheaper than having your own servers or purchasing bandwidth from a CDN provider.
- In addition, we have spent hundreds of hours on development on SoM which gives you an accurate test results.
- Long story short, it's all about accuracy and bandwidth costs. If you don't care much about accuracy, probably a simple in-house solution that is hosted on a single server may serve the purpose.
