Well, it's very "accurate", but this will check the speed download for the current file, not the main speed that you internet is able to.

I think there is need to check connection type, modem etc.

Yes, it is accurate, but how about downloading and uploading via FTP ?

It is not accurate, AFAIK, the DSL connection rating is rated me with bigger rate :rambo:. Here you go 3+ on the topic because of hard work. :rolleyes:

And if you maybe can make it a little bit accurate and add upolad speed (use some free account on free host which supports FTP, and don't use 110MBs) to make it better so it may even got 5.


I can do signature me.

For the first part, isn't that just the same? If your downloading a file with everything possible wouldn't be the main speed that you internet goes at? Unless downloading a file doesn't use all your speed? About "connection type, modem etc.", I really have no idea how to to that... I got the inetget idea from Bert..

@Bert

what about doing a ping test...... calculate the approximate distance to somewhere..... then do a ping, returning.... tongue.gif

My speed was a bit fast too, when downloading files I get a max of 15 kb/sec (go third world countries!!!), but it said that it was getting twenty... Um, if you want to try the ping idea go ahead, and let me know how it works, but I don't think I could figure how it works...

My ignorance is revealed yet again! Like what I replied to MsCreatoR, I really have no idea how I would do that...

703.55 KBs.

It's a little slow. But almost there.

I got 922.89KBS which is consistent with most other online sources. I recommend doing it in kbps (*10) because that is what is common.


"Its not about the 30 inch 1080p display, or the SLI 8800 ultras, or the DDR3 memory. It's about when you turn on your PC, does it return the favor?"Math is like sex. Sure, it may give some practical results, but that is not why we do it

I'm trying a variety of methods now :rolleyes: I'll post when I'm done :rambo:

Ok, that's cool

@Firestorm: A little slow??? I get 20kb/s!!!

@Dethredic: Same as what I said to Firestorm!!! :rolleyes: So for what you suggest "kbps (*10)", I would just multiply it all by 10? Wouldn't that be something different then kb/s?

Here's some tests I did from internet sources:

>----<

http://www.speakeasy.net/speedtest/

Download Speed: 14238 kbps (1779.8 KB/sec transfer rate)

Upload Speed: 1877 kbps (234.6 KB/sec transfer rate)

>----<

http://www.dslreports.com/stest?flash=1

Download Speed: 7683 kbs

Upload Speed: 1735 kbs

>----<

http://www.speedtest.net/

Posted Image

Download Speed: 10679 kbs

Upload Speed: 1830 kbs

>----<

http://myspeed.visualware.com/

Download Speed: 8.67 Mps

Upload Speed: 2.69 Mps

The last one are closest to my actual.

It should be about 8 megs per second for download. And I don't know about upload.

My internet is about ...$75 per month. At comcast.

Actually yes it can. If I had the money, I'd get up to 17Mbps and 60GB transfers, for the low, low price of $129.95 :)... One day....... :mad:
