Here’s a new bandwidth test site that comes from the same company that created SpeakEasy.
Speedtest allows the user to select a server (nearest to your location) to ping from, in several locations in North America, Europe and Australia. This new speed test graphically displays the connections in an interactive map. You can also change the settings for your connection results. You can sort by date, download, upload or server; you can choose how many results it shows per page, change the time zone, choose speed measurement (kilobits, kilobytes, megabits or megabytes) and choose distance measurement (kilometers or miles). Another cool thing you can do with your speed results on Speedtest is share it. They provide links for posting it in forums, posting in your website/weblog and a direct link which you can send thru emails/messages.
Here’s the results of my speed test:
Using Los Angeles, California server:
Using London, UK server:
Using Auckland, NZ server:
I’m using the wireless modem because I couldn’t find the ethernet cable. I’ll try another test when I find the ethernet cable.
