    Unity's internal reachability check returns the type of Internet reachability possible on the current device. As mentioned in their documentation, this does not check for your actual connectivity - it only determines whether the device can, for example, connect to a hot spot. That's not very helpful if the actual route to the network is unavailable.

    Online Check's main purpose is to gain a little bit more comfort by keeping track of your connection state, without consulting your browser or the OS display, which both usually cause an unnecessary delay. This tool doesn't check if you're connected to a specific network. It checks if you have access to the Internet, which, for example, comes in handy when you're on the road connected to a public WiFi.
