Speed Test

A speed test is merely a tool to show the overall network speed between you and the test server. Download speed is dependent on your connection as well as that of the test server. Speed tests are not perfect by any means but do help in checking your connection to various points around the globe. Running a speed test to your own service provider will only show what speed you are getting within your providers network. That speed can frequently be much higher than what you may get to various other places. If you want the most accurate results start with your provider but also run tests to a few other speed test sites locally or internationally.

The following are a list of examples of speed test results that were obtained from my home 7.5mbps cable internet connection.
