@berkSahin

thx man!

@sandeepghuge

Nice work ..... !

@subhanshuja

awesome ....!!

@yogeshnsit

Really good but What if connected to a firewalled network or a wifi with no internet connectivity.

@jpxiong

Good. But sometimes the speed is not fast even through in wifi type. so it is inaccuracy in isConnectionFast() method.
