I have broadband internet speed at home, and I was very curious to check what my Broadband’s Internet speed was. I wanted to check if my ISP (Internet Service Provider) was claiming true numbers.
I used SpeedTest.net which is free, to find my internet broadband connection speed. You can check your internet speed too using SpeedTest. Here’s the procedure :
1> Go to http://www.speedtest.net/ and click on ‘Your Results‘ at the top of the page.
2> You’ll find ‘View Results For‘ text box, which mostly will be filled automatically, if not enter your Current IP there and Click on Test Again.
3> You’ll be taken to a page which will look something like this :
4> Click on any location whose physical distance from your place is the shortest and the test begins automatically.
5> Try different servers in and around your place and collect information.
After a couple of tests, when you have collected enough information click on ‘Your Results‘ again and you’ll get a consolidated result which will be something like this :
6> You can find your test summary from ‘Your Summary‘ page.
