Windows Phone: test its download speed

For various reasons you may need to test your internet speed from your Windows Phone. “There’s an app for that” (even if it’s not an iPhone!).

The main sites offering speed tests via the browser do not work on the Internet Explorer 10 browser integrated into Windows Phone 8 (these sites using Adobe Flash).

The “Mire IP Adsl” site works since it does not use any particular extension to carry out the speed test. However, the result does not seem reliable at all.
