    Re: internet speed test

    Speedtest.net seems to give very erratic results. Normally I download a large file from a site I know to be fast but http://www.speedtest.bbmax.co.uk/ seems to be one of the better speed test sites.

    This worked pretty well for me. Says my download speed was just over 2.1mb/s which is exactly what I get when downloading from steam, fileplanet, etc .

    Re: internet speed test

    speedtest.io gives my download speed as 3000 Kbits/sec with 10 per cent variation over 5 runs but thinkbroadband speedtest within 30 mins with 5 runs varies from .8mbps to 6.2mbps. is this unusual?

    It didn't like Opera, but clearing the cache and IDing as IE did the trick. Thanks.

    I like to use this one or this one.

    SpeedTest.net is useless in my opinion, never accurate for me.

    There's a new one that could keep us amused for a while - shows what others on the same exchange are getting. Article here:

    Just tried the above an got an error message.

    However my expected speed was 0.25 meg and all speed test give me between 2 and 3 meg. I live in the middle of nowhere miles from my exchange so I am impressed with my service.

    Managed to get it to work. Tells me that my expected speed is 3Meg: I get 1.6 - 2Meg, but just after Tiscali took over from Homecall/Pipex I got 3.1Meg so it seems accurate (the 3 was real, according to the rate for the first 100MB of Ubuntu from Oxford Uni on a Sunday morning).
