Default Speed test

Anyone got a good and, more importantly trustworthy, speed test site I can use? I'm not exactly the most computer savvy of guys and don't want to start the test on a random google site. Any help and I shall immediately bestow pointy-poos upon thee!

If your testing wan speed to the next hop (router) it'll be blistering speed, but if your testing wan speed 30 hops away, well depending on congestion "traffic" on each hop plus the congestion of the server node your connecting too, this is calculated as well for your total speed. Quiet nights things are fast, durning the day commerical enterprises absorb a lot of bandwidth ie banks etc.

Then there is Akamai acceleration mirror service which mirror sites and reduce hops. I'm sure cell service is quite dependent on this service.

So speed sir is what it is capable of, once your on the highway that's not the ISP's problem. Just don't let the numbers confuse ya.


MB = mega byte; Mb = mega bit or 1/8th of a megabyte.

You've got independent testing agencies in the country I live. Before you take speed it is indeed a wise thing to have it tested for it's contents. You are a smart person. Next time you need your dose, feel free to contact me to hook you up with a few kilograms.

(against a small fee, ofcourse.)

Your ISP's servers throttle your bandwidth based on how many people are connected to it and also this is how they entice people to pay more to upgrade to a higher speed package. 4G networks do the exact same thing, but whatever network you are on offers higher speeds for the service you chose.

I know, it's bullshit.

I have Sprint for my cell and it's always at 30MB/s. I like that. My home is up and down and never consistent. This is what I'm saying, how can OTA be faster/more consistent than a land line ? Something wrong with my router or box at home ?
