  • The internet connection speed test measures that amount of time that it takes to download and upload a file. This is a non-obtrusive test and the test determines your internet connection speed based on the amount of time that it takes to upload and download the file. If you find that you have a slow connection to the internet, you can determine the best time for you to download or upload files by keeping a history of your internet connection speeds to help determine when you have the fastest internet connection speeds.

    The first step you should take when trying to determine your internet connection speed is to use speed test sites. While it can be easier to just guess what your speed is, based on the quality of service you are getting, that wouldn’t work because a lot more factors than we know of can influence the internet speed we get.

    Determining internet speed


    Hi

    I was wondering if there was any way of determining my internet connection speed. I am on a 96 kbps line through the day but at 9 PM i switch to a 256 kbps connection.

    I used wget to download a few things but the speed that wget downloads stuff at is dependent also on the server hosting what I am downloading. So, I don't exactly know what speed my connection is. And I don't trust my ISP so I wish to check if I indeed get 96 kbps through the day and 256 kbps at night.

    Is there any way to check this, besides using wget? Hope I am making sense.

    Cheers!
