Network Information API

How to detect Network Connection changes ??

Do you have same question sometime in ur mind ? hmm.. i got answer from MDN

This API provides information about the system’s connection, such as connection bandwidth of user device, or whether the connection is metered.

Usage :
This can be used to select hight definition and low definition content based on the user’s connection.

Detecting connection changes

var connection = navigator.connection || navigator.mozconnection 
|| navigator.webkitconnection;
function updateConnectionStatus(){
alert("connection bandwidth="+connection.bandwidth +"Mbs");
alert("the connection is metered");

Simple JS Code ..!!@@
