HOWTO: emulate a slow connection on OSX

less than 1 minute read

In Italy, where I live (for now), it’s not difficult to “emulate” a slow connection. Anyway if you want test your new webapp or you want see the behavior of website with a slow connection, then “speedlimit” is for you. It’s a small application (preference pane exactly) that you can find here.

The steps are very simple:

  1. download it (from here)
  2. install it
  3. run it
  4. choose the ports and the sites where you want go slowly
  5. finally choose the slowness of you “emulated” connection
  6. once you have set up everything, press the button “Slow Down”

So, don’t run!! :)
