How to Show the Internet Speed Meter on Windows 11

While Windows 11 includes a native internet bandwidth manager, it lacks an internet speed tracker. It means you can’t see how much internet your system is using in real-time. This is where internet speed meter tools come in handy. In this guide, we will introduce two different apps that you can use to enable and show the internet speed meter on Windows 11. These tools can show you the current internet upload and download speed on your Windows machine.

This information is extremely useful. It can assist you in determining whether or not your machine is using more internet bandwidth than expected. Internet speed monitoring can also assist you in tracking down connection issues in your network.
