Best network speed monitor on the App Store

This app should be built into OSX!

This small little application has been running on my Mac since more than 5 years now. I’ve been looking to it every single minute since.

Accurate speed. You can switch between bytes and bits in the app settings.
Eats very low system resources. If your Mac is built after 2010 you’ll be fine.
Amazing author support. In the exceptional occasion you do have issues the author will help you out.

If your work depends on your internet (or LAN) connection do not look any further. This is by far the best monitoring app on the market.
Mature app. I love it.

Just What I Needed

I also use MenuMeters which is wonderful. MenuMeters does not give the choice of bits or bytes though. Network Speed Monitor does. My only suggestion would be to add a font choice. The default font doesn’t match the rest of the menu bar.

Crap. Doesn’t work as supposed

I purchased the app and after I installed it it showed the network speed. BUT the netwrk speed is NOT EVEN CLOSE to the real speed. NEVER. E.g. I have a speed of 66/21 mb/s and it shows 1.9kb/s /41.2 kb/s that is about 99% wrong.

I sent 3 emails to them and they didn’t bother to answer. Save you money and the aggravation of an app that is not working.
