MDN’s new design is in Beta! A sneak peek:


This API is available on Firefox OS for internal applications only.

Retrieval of connection types is now done via the MozNetworkStatsManager.getAvailableNetworks method.


The connectionTypes property is a list of all possible monitored connection types by the current device.

There are currently two connection types available:

  • wifi: for statistics regarding data usage over wifi networks
  • mobile: for statistics regarding data usage over mobile networks


var types = navigator.mozNetworkStats.connectionTypes;


Returns an Array of strings.


Not part of any specification.
