I am looking for a free Android application that can display the current Internet speed (upstream and downstream) in the status bar, just like the non-free application Internet Speed Meter can do:

It should support 4G and Wi-Fi connections.

Net Speed Meter


  • No matter what App run in the foreground, you can alway know the network throughput.
  • Display the network throughput with chart.
  • Tap and slip the chart to anywhere you want!
  • The chart can auto hide after there is no network traffic for a while.
  • Custom your view ! You can disable chart, let it show only numeric.
  • Monitor network type support: 3G, wifi, Bluetooth.
  • Free

All settings:

I have a good one:

Gravity Box

It requires a rooted phone with Xposed framework installed but it integrates pretty well with the notification bar.

Or can also mod the signal icon as well as the battery icon.
