Why did we create the ‘Test File Download’ resource?
We say Incredible Question: The sole purpose of our test files is to test download speed. Although there are multiple online tools available to test downloading speed, dummy files are helpful especially when you are testing your real internet speed using different tools like “Internet Download Manager or IDM” or any other.
Please note downloading our test files counts in the download usage limit imposed by your internet service provider. So, be aware when downloading large files like 10GB bin or 5GB bin, etc.
If you need even bigger files, contact us.
