Our free app will help you get the best from your internet connection, whether you’re at home or on the move.
The mobile and broadband checker app lets you:
Download it for free to your smartphone or tablet or you can use the mobile and broadband checker directly from a web browser from computers and other devices.
Tap the “check availability” option on the app’s home screen.
You can also view the availability of mobile and broadband services using the interactive availability maps.
To check your broadband performance, connect your device to your Wi-Fi network and select “run a test” within the app. It will then run a series of tests to check how well your Wi-Fi is performing.
If it finds any problems with your Wi-Fi or broadband connection, the app will provide tips on how you can improve performance.
To get a complete view of your household’s performance, we recommend running multiple tests in different locations, at different times and on different devices.
The fixed broadband data available in the apps and our online checker is also available via an API (https://api.ofcom.org.uk/). The mobile data will be available via an API from late December 2018.
