Question about commands to test network connectivity issues.

I know ping and traceroute are commands that test network connectivity.
what about netstat and telnet?
can they also test network connectivity?

Yes you can.

netstat shows how your system connects to other systems or networked devices.
telnet is an old protocol, used to connect to other systems.

Also check manuals of netstat, telnet and ssh.
