Users use the browser version and app of the RTR-NetTest (Android and iOS) at their own risk. Please send any comments on correction of inaccurate content, graphics etc. by e-mail to email@example.com. Under 14 years can use the RTR-NetTest with the consent of their legal guardian(s).
The RTR-NetTest informs users about the current service quality (including upload, download, ping, signal strength) of their Internet connection. For technically interested users the browser version as well as the iOS App offer an optional loop-mode, which enables automatically repeated RTR-NetTests. The Android app features two options for technically interested users: On the one hand, RTR-NetTest offers a loop-mode, which enables automatically repeated RTR-NetTests (note: in pauses between the tests signal measurements continue); on the other hand, with the signal-only loop-mode signal measurements are also carried out repeatedly - without any speed- or quality tests. Furthermore, in case an operator in Austria provides fixed Internet access, the browser test offers the possibility to undertake a certified measurement. With this, conclusive statements about the quality of the fixed Internet access of a user can be made. They serve as the basis for a so-called "prima facie proof" of certain aspects of this Internet connection.
In the event of a great demand or very high number of tests in a specific area, the loop-mode can be rejected by the test system in order to avoid overload. Please note that the loop-mode is (only) intended for use within the EU and the EEA. The loop-mode consumes a large amount of data. With fast connections, 10 tests can consume 1 GB or more of data. It is therefore strongly recommended that the loop-mode is only used with real flat rate tariffs, where additional data volume does not cause additional costs. The loop-mode drains the battery quickly. In pauses between the tests, the GPS and the display remain active and signal measurements continue, which means that the energy is used up much faster than during stand-by mode. The loop-mode should therefore only be used if an external power supply is available. The same applies to the signal-only loop-mode: The signal-only loop-mode is (only) intended for use within the EU and the EEA. The battery is quickly drained by the signal-only measurements. In the pauses between tests, the GPS and the display remain active and signal measurements continue, which means that the energy is used up much faster than in stand-by mode. The loop-mode should therefore only be used if an external power supply is available.
RTR’s legal authorisation to offer RTR-NetTest is enshrined in Art. 17 Par. 4 and Par. 5 and Art. 17b TKG 2003 as well as Art 4 Par. 4 and Art 5 Par. 1 Regulation (EU) 2015/2120 ("TSM regulation"). To fulfil this duty and ensure users with the greatest possible transparency and information – while respecting their privacy – RTR-NetTest is based on the open source and open data principle.
According to the open source principle, this means that the source code of the RTR-NetTest software is publicly accessible and that RTR has put the components it has developed under an open source licence, i.e. Apache licence version 2.0 (https://www.apache.org/licenses/LICENSE-2.0).Care should be taken, however, that when the RTR-NetTest source code is used, other licences may be needed.

There is no legal claim to permanent availability of the offer. RTR explicitly reserves the right to change, add to or delete parts of the RTR-NetTest or the entire RTR-NetTest offer without prior announcement, or to cease publication of it temporarily or finally.
RTR makes every endeavour to ensure the RTR-NetTest browser version/website and RTR-NetTest app are constantly up-to-date, complete and accurate. To ensure the correctness of the results, implausible and/or obvious abusive measurements may be marked and/or removed by RTR. RTR reserves the right to initiate appropriate legal action in case of non-compliance. RTR accepts no liability for the up-to-dateness, correctness, completeness or quality of the information and offers provided. As a basic principle, no claims can be brought against RTR for material or immaterial disadvantages and/or losses resulting from the use or non-use of information provided or from the use of incorrect and incomplete information.
