Use Speakeasy Speed Test to check internet speed. It’s more than a cable speed test or download speed test. It’s a bandwidth test. Use the test to learn if your Internet speed, both upload speed and download speed, is as promised by your broadband provider. Results can be affected by local area network issues, IP or access overhead, and even network design. Your Internet speed is important for online gaming, interactive programs, and applications like VoIP. For most businesses, it's usually best to have download speed and upload speed be close to the same. You can save your bandwidth test results in the Results History - a handy feature if you need to show your provider how your Internet speed varies. For additional help about this bandwidth test, and throughput, see more info.
