Currently my workaround is to request ad (AdMob) and see if it fails to load to detect there is no or poor internet. But is there a straight forward easy way of checking internet?

From what I know, and looking through the docs, there’s no API to check internet connection. Your approach is usually what is done to check internet connection.

To make a simpler request you could request or which should always be up.

To add to this, you can check multiple websites that should always be up (google, amazon, bing) stopping when you get a hit, just in case the user has one of them blocked
