How to Simulate a Modem Connection

I recently had to troubleshoot and fix a defect that wound up being directly related to being on a slow connection. I was not able to find a solution quickly via Google (my Google-Fu must have been failing me at the time), so I am blogging this so that maybe it will help someone in the future.

To simulate a slow connection, I did the following:

  • Download and install Fiddler .
  • Open Fiddler and then select Rules > Performance > Simulate Modem Speeds.
  • Go to any page in your browser.

You should notice the page loading slower than normal. When you’re done, simply uncheck that option.
