Whether it’s from your usual location or you’re playing from somewhere new, Haste Check has you covered.

Haste Check is simple to use: choose your game, start the test, and review the results.

What is ping, jitter, and packet loss?

Ping is the amount of time it takes to send a packet (piece of data) and receive a response, such as from your PC to a game server or vice-versa.

Jitter, sometimes called ping spikes,  is the fluctuation of ping over time (standard deviation).

Packet loss is the percentage of packets that do not arrive at their destination within a certain amount of time.

For the best experience, all of these metrics should be as low as possible.
