Just how fast IS you connection? I know… your ISP says that you are getting 3meg down x 768 up but, are you? If your Internet connection seems slow, you should do some checking before complaining to your ISP. There are many sites available with Internet speed tests.
Internet speed tests let you know how your connection is actually doing at that point in time. And, with some reference tests done you go back to ISP with more information than; “Hey my internet is slow!!”
You can go to Google, search for “Internet speed test” and you will literally get Thousands of sites returned. So, to save you some time, here are my top nine sites that I have found most reliable and pretty easy to use.
- SpeakEasy.net – Integrated down/up test
- PC Pitstop
- CNET tests
- Bandwidth Place
- MySpeed Server
- Audit My PC
- McAfee.com Speed Test
