Install macOS Monterey for Network Quality Tool

Install macOS Monterey for Network Quality Tool

There's an extremely useful network quality tool hidden in macOS Monterey.

The tool, discovered by Dan Petrov, measures your Mac's internet connectivity quality. Think of it like Apple's equivalent to Speedtest.

In order to bring it up, you'll need to bring up macOS' Terminal and type in "networkQuality." That's it. Once you do that, Terminal will spit out your connection's upload and download capacity. It also shows you its responsiveness.

While it's not a full replacement for sites like Speedtest, it's a nifty way to quickly check the quality of your Mac's connection.

If you're still on old software like Big Sur, consider making the move for this feature and others.

    Preview Version 11.0 (1033.4) freezes more than half the time I use it.
    ‘Report Issue to Apple’ gives me the spinning coloured wheel for about 30-45 s before it recovers.
    I had to force quit the Finder just today. I was unable to re-launch the Finder. I had to manually power down, and then it took about 4-5 tries to get the MacBook Pro (16-inch, 2021) (Apple M1 Pro chip) to start again.
