Mobile application RFBENCHMARK allows measurements of radio coverage provided by mobile operator and testing of Internet Connection Quality for different Radio Access Technologies (RAN), such as: GSM, 3G, LTE, WIFI.

Installation
Application can be downloaded free of charge directly from RFBenchmark website and Google Store. You can find application at Google Store using search string RFBENCHMARK. As alternative, if you have configured Google account in your mobile phone, it is possible to installan application using browser and link at RFBENCHMARK Web Site

How to use mobile application RFBenchmark
By pressing left upper buttonyou can display application main menu

Main Page
The main page show interactive map with quality scale, actual terminal position and current measurements.

Service provider name

LAC (Location Area Code) and CID (Cell Identifier). Parameters using to describe mobile phone location in mobile network. CID tell about mobile phone serving cell. This identifier belongs with other CID to cell set described by location area code LAC.

An actual using technology (LTE, 3G, GSM)

Measured signal level in dBm (logarithmic scale, which linear level of the received power is referenced to 1mW). This level is classified on scale from 0 to 5Measured signal level in dBm (logarithmic scale, which linear level of the received power is referenced to 1mW). This level is classified on scale from 0 to 5 (8)

GPS refresh and display of actual position on the map. The next press turns on tracking mode.

Tapping this button show or hide aggregated signal level measurements made by other users for selected map area. You can display one operator or all operators depending on your preferences (9)

Tapping this button show or hide aggregated speed test measurements made by other users for selected map area. You can display one operator or all operators depending on your preferences (9)

The quality of signal scale from 0 to 5 is used to classify quality of signal level (4). Each level has unique colour, which is use to display measurement points on the map

Ranking of mobile operators connected with signal level (6) and speed test measurments(7). You can choose technology (GSM, UMTS, LTE) of measurements.

Information about best mobile operator, which has the best signal level on the chosen area on the map

Performance test
Performance test allow test the Internet parameters in two scenarios:

Mobile Internet. You should enable data transfer service in your mobilephone and to turn off WiFi.
WiFi network. It is enough to connect with available WiFi network and proceed with performance test.

In the performance test,application is measuring three main parameters:ping, download and upload speed. A detailed description of each parameter and its interpretation, reflecting quality of service, can be found at Methodology section.

Attention! One time test use about 15MB of data transfer.

Test server selected by mobile application before testing Internet connection quality

The mobile operator which quality of service was tested. In case testing WiFi, application displays Network Name (SSID) of WiFi network

Actual technology during performance test

Three graphs inform about the measured parameters: ping, download and upload speed

After test, by tapping each graph (4) you can display bar chart presenting sequent samples of measurement for each main quality parameter: ping, download and upload speed. Below graphs, you can find as well, average worldwide results for each parameter for refrence purposes

Information about which parameter (5) is actually displayed. In order to change displayed information you need to press appropriategraph (4)

A colour bar display next to each of defined data services (WWW, Video SD, Video HD, …) inform about user perceived quality of service. A short, red bar means that achieved quality of connection is not sufficient for respective data service(WWW, Video SD, Video HD, …). In contrast a long, green bar indicates very good connection forrespective data service (WWW, Video SD, Video HD, …)

You can use this button to share test results by e-mail or Facebook
