Reliability of Connection (Long Term Test)

Reliability of Connection (Long Term Test)

Are there any programs that can be recommended for testing internet reliability? Something like a speed test, however I am specifically interested in monitoring my upload speeds over time (and maybe graphing them).

 

I am running macOS so if there are any relevant tools built into the system, that works, as well as third party application suggestions.  

 

Thank you.

If you sign up for a free account at Ookla (http://www.speedtest.net ), you get the ability to track your speed results over time, look at trends, even export the results to a CSV file. 

I believe dslreports.com also gives you those functions as well as more comprehensive tools.

Thanks for the suggestion. I've used speedtest.net a bunch but didn't know they had a login. I recently got the desktop app which logs all my tests too. I'll check out their account. 

 

Sounds like dslreports.com is what I'm looking for. I appreciate the lead.
