    Wifi is a local area network interface -- so do you mean your internet connection or your local network connection. If you mean your internet connection, yes, you can google for "internet connection test" and find a testing location near you - or just download a large file from somewhere. If you mean your local area network, copy a large file from one computer to another.

    Yes, I meant internet connection speed. Ok would see some file for testing.

    My download speed was coming 0.97 Mbps. Is it a slow connection?
