What's your connection speed? [speed test links inside]

Recommended Posts

Test your speed.

 

How to:

Step 1

Decide which server to use, click that link. The new page should show a JAVA applet. If one server is busy, try another.

 

Step 2

NOTE: if you haven't already done so, you will be prompted to install the java.sun.com plugin before using the speed tests. Most computers will already have this installed, though, so don't worry.

 

Step 3

The test may take up to 30 seconds. Don't use your connection during that period. After it is complete, the page will change to show the results.

 

Step 4

Post on here, motherfuckers.

 

 

 

Pick a server:

 

USA:

http://den.speakeasy.net - Denver, CO

http://dfw.speakeasy.net - Dallas/Fort Worth, TX

http://nyc.speakeasy.net - New York, NY

 

Canada:

http://www.speedtest.newtel.com/ - St. Johns

 

Australia:

http://www.tcpiq.com/tcpiq/linespeed/default.asp - Queensland

 

UK:

http://www.adslguide.org.uk/tools/speedtest.asp - London

 

 

 

 

My results:

My download speed : 2849 kbps.

My upload speed : 370 kbps.

Ok, I'm fixing to switch from COMCAST because the service (cable) cuts out every now and again for a couple hours.... not to mention after 3 months of getting the reduced rate in the beginning, you get bumped up to about $50 payments a month.... and service termination charges etc.... apply. So, I'm gonna sacrifice some speed for some extra cash by getting DSL.... now the question is which.

 

I'm considering CharterCommunications because broadband reports says they're good.

i heard these "web based" modem speed tester things aren't accurate. i think they said the best way to measure the speed is to download a file and time how long it takes, do some long division with the kilo/mega bytes and voila.
